William McCall Calhoun Jr. was arrested Jan. 15 and charged with his alleged participation in the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 after he reportedly bragged about kicking in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s door.
An unidentified source notified the FBI about Calhoun’s boasting on Facebook, Twitter and Parler, reports WXIA:
He bragged in the [Facebook] post that he was among the “the first of us who got upstairs kicked in Nancy Pelosi’s office door and pushed down the hall toward her inner sanctum” and that if the Speaker was around, she “probably would have been torn into little pieces.”
He explains that they pushed through the police barricades, entered the building, began yelling names and “stormed upstairs … looking for members of Congress.”
Calhoun wrote about Democrats “being shot on site,” and said the rioters were “going to kill every last communist who stands in Trump’s way,” according to an affidavit filed by the FBI agent assigned to the case.
Calhoun — who is a criminal defense lawyer — has been charged with entering restricted Building or Grounds; Violent Entry or Disorderly Conduct; Tampering With a Witness, Victim, or an Informant.
