Nicholas Peretta

Nicholas Perretta and Mitchell Vukich traveled together to D.C on January 6th.  Perretta admitted that he and Vukich took papers from the interior of the Capitol, which he described as three-month-old congressional papers, that they later threw away outside of the Capitol.  Perretta claimed that he believed that the U.S. Capitol was open to the general public, and there is no evidence of any violence committed by him.

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