FBI Investigating Whether The Person Who Stole Pelosi Laptop Tried Selling It To Russia

The FBI is currently investigating whether the missing woman who stole House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s laptop during the Capitol riot intended to sell it to Russia.

Riley June Williams, the woman who allegedly stole Democratic Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s laptop during the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, might have attempted to sell it to Russians, according to an unsealed affidavit, Politico reported. The FBI said the claim “remains under investigation,” the affidavit said.

“[A witness] stated that Williams intended to send the computer device to a friend in Russia, who then planned to sell the device to SVR, Russia’s foreign intelligence service,” FBI special agent Jonathan Lund wrote in the affidavit.

“The transfer of the computer device to Russia fell through for unknown reasons and Williams still has the computer device or destroyed it,” Lund continued.

The witness told investigators that they were a former romantic partner of Williams, according to the affidavit.
