Sean David Watson

Sean Watson’s participation in the January 6, 2021 U.S. Capitol riot is
supported by a review of his texts, photographs, and videos from his seized cellular
telephone. For example, on January 7, 2021, he texts, “I am fine. I was one of the people
that helped storm the capitol building and smash out the windows . We made history today. Proudest
day of my life!” Later that day, Watson texts, “Got some videos and pics will share them when
I get back.” In addition to texts, the following images were discovered in his phone
despite his attempt to delete them.

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