Matthew Mark Wood

Video evidence shows 23-year-old Matthew Mark Wood, carrying a Trump flag, was among the first dozen people to climb into a broken window that day.  Wood is accused of being inside the Capitol for more than an hour video obtained from inside the U.S. Capitol Rotunda that shows Wood parading, demonstrating, and picketing. It also shows Wood waving and encouraging others to engage and confront law enforcement as they attempt to push rioters back and clear the Rotunda.

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