de los ‘Proud Boys’ a QAnon

The US Justice has already been launched to identify the Capitol robbers. The FBI has asked Twitter users for help in order to recognize them in any of the many images available. The first arrests have already taken place, whose identities have been released by the Capitol Police.

Accusations that there were members of the antifa movement at the demonstrations have not stopped. Some publications John Sullivan is called an “infiltrator,” but this activist against racial violence openly announced that he would be there to record the incidents.

RTVE has been able to verify that the participants whose faces have been made more viral by the images recorded during the assault have profiles of Trump supporters, and even inclination towards conspiratorial or far-right movements. These are the identities we have investigated.

Richard “Bigo” Barnett

One of the iconic images of the break in the Capitol is that of a man with his feet on the president’s desk of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi. Outside the building, he shows an envelope addressed to this representative in a video. Explain what he took it from his office and that he left in its place a “quarter” (a quarter of a dollar).

Assault on the Capitol: this was the night of an unusual attack on democracy in the United States.

The reporter from The New York Times who interviewed you has identified you like Richard “Bigo” Barnett, a resident of Gravette, Arkansas. The Washington Post has released images of your facebook profile, now disappeared, in which he declared himself a white nationalist. The mayor of Gravette has confirmed that the man in the photographs is a resident of his town by a post on your page of Facebook, and wanted to emphasize that “the actions of one do not represent us all.” In this news from October 2020 we see him with members of a patriot association dedicated to the Second Amendment, which guarantees the right to bear arms.
