On May 28, FBI agents conducted a raid at a boutique resort in Homer, Alaska, supposedly searching for a laptop stolen from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi during the storming of the U.S. Capitol building in Washington, D.C. on January 6.
Marilyn Hueper, the owner of the Homer Inn and Spa, provided details of the raid during an interview with Kenai radio station KSRM.
According to Hueper, agents confiscated multiple laptops and a cell phone. They also forensically audited a cell phone which belonged to her husband Paul Hueper, but did not confiscate it.
Upon entering her living quarters inside the resort, the agents told Hueper that she probably knew why they were there. “I was like, ‘Yeah, no, not really,'” she said in the interview.
“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 continued.
Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff, Drew Hammill, previously reported that the laptop was stolen from a conference room on January 6. Hammill also claimed that the computer had only been used for “presentations.”
While speaking with Hueper during the raid, federal agents claimed that they were in possession of photographic evidence that she had entered the Capitol building during the January 6 incident. Both Marilyn and Paul Hueper were in attendance during President Donald Trump’s rally in Washington, D.C. on January 6, but both have denied ever entering the Capitol building.
According to Hueper, FBI agents also asked her who she was working with. She responded to the question with laughter, but immediately apologized. “I don’t mean to be disrespectful and laughing, but this is really surreal and strange,” Hueper said, according to her comments during the interview with the radio station.
No arrests were made during the raid.
