Federal agents raided a small resort in Homer, Alaska, this week, telling the owners they were on the hunt for a laptop stolen out of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office during the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol.
Marilyn Hueper, who owns the picturesque Homer Inn & Spa, says feds seized her laptop computers and a cell phone. Another phone, which belonged to husband Paul Hueper, was reviewed but later returned to him, The Associated Press reported.
Marilyn Hueper told the local Kenai radio station KSRM that federal agents believed she and her husband had Pelosi’s laptop, and had been part of the mob which forcibly breached the capitol during a riot that left five dead.
“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 said.
Hueper claims agents showed her photos of a woman from the Jan. 6 riot who bears a striking resemblance to her, but that she told them they had made a mistake.
The inn owner — who did attend the broader rally outside the capitol that day with her husband — denied entering the building and said she told the feds they had confused her with a similar looking woman.
The laptop was confirmed missing by the California Democrat’s deputy chief of staff, Drew Hammill, two days after the riot, who said the computer had only been used for presentations.
The Hueper’s did not immediately respond to request for comment from The Post.
