This past week, federal agents of the United States government raided an Alaskan woman’s house and “boutique hotel and spa” claimed to be looking for Nancy Pelosi’s laptop, which was stolen during the United States Capitol riots that took place on January 6th. The Alaskan woman has stated that the whole event is a case of mistaken identity.
“Marilyn Hueper, who with her husband owns the Homer Inn & Spa in Homer, Alaska, said federal agents broke down the door of their home and confiscated laptop computers and a cellphone and handcuffed them and their guests during the search,” as reported by Fox News, taking a quote from a local paper from Anchorage, Alaska.
Hueper stated that the FBI commenced the search with the help of capitol police and that the agents involved “forensically audited” the cell phone of her husband. She also went on to state what the agents are claiming that no one answered when they attempted to knock before entering the home, which also serves as a bed and breakfast. Hueper, however, claims that no such knocking took place before the search party entered her house.
“I think almost right off the bat, they said, ‘Well, you probably know why we’re here,’ or something like that. It’s like, yeah, no, not really. And they said, ‘Well, we’re here for Nancy Pelosi’s laptop.’ And I said, ‘Oh,’” Hueper told a local radio station, reportedly.
The federal agents showed Hueper a photo of the woman they claimed was the one inside the United States Capitol and who may have Nancy Pelosi’s Laptop. in response, Hueper stated that the woman looked “remarkably” like her, but went on to say to the agents that while she had attended the rally outside the U.S. Capitol building that she never, in fact, went inside the building. She went on to say that instead of being inside the building, she and her husband were only there “on a whim” and were “lost, eating hot dogs at the other end of the mall,” when the rioters rush the building.
“I’m like, ‘Wait a minute. Is that her? That’s clearly not me. Why did you not show me this to start with?’” Hueper stated during her interview.
“I don’t mean to be disrespectful and laughing, but this is really surreal and strange,” she went on to say to the agents. “I still think it’s funny that they want to take me as someone who was actually there [at the Capitol riot], instead of lost, eating hot dogs at the other end of the Mall.”
She went on to say that she appreciated knowing, for a fact, that Pelosi’s laptop was actually missing and that the search for it was not just part of some “conspiracy theory.”
