William Dunfee

Between 1 and 2 PM on January 6th, 2021, William Dunfee is seen on multiple occasions on the “front line” among a crowd of individuals pushing against/removing the metal barricades on the East Front of the U.S. Capitol grounds.  He is also pictured utilizing a bullhorn, speaking to both the crowd and Police at different times.  Dunfee (among a crowd) makes his way up to the East Front Doors around 2:20 PM.  About, 20 minutes later, at the same entrance to the East Front Doors, as other individuals are exiting the Capitol Building at this time, Dunfee told the crowd, “Mission accomplished.”.  The same video depicts other individuals stating things along the lines of “We did it. We got our job done.”

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