Federal agents conducted a raid on a boutique resort in Homer, Alaska, claiming on their search warrant that they were looking for Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi‘s laptop, which was allegedly stolen during the storming of the U.S. Capitol building in Washington, D.C. on January 6.
According to Marilyn Hueper, the owner of the Homer Inn and Spa, agents confiscated several laptops and a cell phone. She also noted that the agents forensically audited a cell phone which belonged to her husband, Paul Hueper.
After entering her home inside the resort on the morning of May 28, the agents allegedly told Hueper that she probably knew why they were there. “I was like, ‘Yeah, no, not really,'” she said in an interview on Kenai radio station KSRM.
“And they said, ‘Well, we’re here for Nancy Pelosi’s laptop.’ And I said, ‘Oh, so it was stolen and it’s at large, good to know. I thought maybe it was just conspiracy theory, so thanks for the intel,’” Hueper added.
According to Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff, Drew Hammill, the laptop was allegedly stolen from a conference room. Hammill also claimed that the laptop that was taken “was only used for presentations.”
When speaking with Hueper, the agents also claimed that they had photographic evidence that she had entered the Capitol building during the January 6 incident. She and her husband had attended President Donald Trump’s rally in Washington, D.C. on January 6, but they both deny ever entering the Capitol building.
Hueper also told the radio station that agents had asked her who she was working with. She replied by laughing, but immediately apologized. “I don’t mean to be disrespectful and laughing, but this is really surreal and strange,” Hueper said in the interview with the radio station.
No arrests were made during the raid.
