Luke Wessley Bender

Bender (pictured right) made statements on social media saying he was present at the Capitol on Jan 6th. There is no evidence he engaged in violence. Bender walked onto the Senate floor, looked at items others held, and appeared to join other men who were praying.

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