Douglas Farquhar Macrae

Macrae entered the Capitol and walked through the building, filming and posting what he saw. He walked up the stairs and caught word that Ashli Babbitt had been killed, then left.

It doesn’t appear Macrae engaged in any violence.

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