Anthony Michael Puma

Photos confirmed Puma was present at the Capitol on Jan. 6th. He told police he went as a spectator to hear President Trump’s speech. Puma noticed the Capitol was open and went in. He didn’t see anything of concern, but as conflict escalated, he began videotaping it.

Please keep in mind that in the United States, every citizen charged with a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
