Riley June Williams was turned in to the FBI by former “romantic partner,” according to court documents. A Pennsylvania woman accused of being one of the Capitol rioters told a former “romantic partner” she planned to steal a laptop computer from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office and sell it to Russian intelligence, court documents revealed Monday. Riley June Williams was on the run, charged with disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds with the intent to disturb a session of Congress and other charges after her former flame turned her in. “Williams is not in custody,” a federal law enforcement officials told NBC News on Monday afternoon.
William’s ex, who was described in Special Agent Jonathan Lund’s charging document as W 1 (witness one), called the FBI and told them she “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.” (…) Pelosi deputy chief of staff, Drew Hammill, confirmed in a Tweet that Pelosi’s laptop was stolen from the conference room on Jan. 6 but that it was “only used for presentations.” The FBI said they spoke with Williams’ mother on Saturday and she allegedly said, “she recognized her daughter inside the U.S. Capitol Building and that her daughter had taken a sudden interest in President Trump’s politics and “far-right message boards.”
