Richard Barnett

Barnett can be seen pictured sitting at a desk inside of Nancy Pelosi’s office around 2:50 P.M.  His weapons charges came after the FBI received a tip that in one of the pictures it looked as though he was in possession of a stun gun while being inside the building.  There is no detail of any violence committed by Barnett.

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