Riley June Williams

Riley Williams was one of the alleged individuals responsible for stealing Nancy Pelosi’s gavel from her office. Williams was also caught on video directing others and saying, “up the stairs, up the stairs”, according to the Department of Justice. FBI agent John Lund detailed the allegations in a court affidavit, noting that a former romantic partner had told the agency that she had taken either a laptop or a hard drive, with the intent to sell it to Russians.

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