William Pepe

Video footage confirmed Pepe was at the Capitol on Jan. 6th. It is unclear whether he engaged in violent activity during his time there. He was dismissed as an employee of NY’s Metro Transport Authority because he used sick leave to attend the rally that day.

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