Ryan Seth Suleski

Suleski claimed that the only reason he entered the Capitol was because he saw
other people enter. He further alleged that he did not see anyone fighting with the Capitol
police until he was inside the building.  He stated, upon entry, that he nodded at a Capitol Police Officer, who then nodded back.  There is no account of violence on Suleski’s behalf, and he denied stealing any property.

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