Arkansas Man Identifies Himself as Trump Supporter Who Sat in Pelosi's Office, Claims He Left Her a Quarter

A hell of a lot happened on Wednesday in Washington D.C., where supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol Building as Congress attempted to count the Electoral College votes and certify Joe Biden's victory. One moment in particular stood out: a man was seen putting a foot on a desk in the office of House Speaker and common Trump target Nancy Pelosi . He has been identified as Arkansas man Richard "Bigo" Barnett , 60.

He insisted to New York Times reporter Matthew Rosenberg that he did not actually steal the envelope that he took from Pelosi's office because he left the Speaker a quarter.


That's Richard "Bigo" Barnett, 60, from Gravette, Ak., showing off the personalized envelope he took from Speaker Pelosi's office. He insisted he didn't steal it — "I left a quarter on her desk." pic.twitter.com/aST7MCoRwP

The commonly shared picture on social media shows him with his foot on a desk. People often interpreted this as being the speaker's, but Pelosi's daughter Christine Pelosi said it was not.


Not her desk. The Trump rioter did vandalize her office. The trash will be removed and the seditionists will be prosecuted. https://t.co/uablvzMXNt

Reporters with KNWA and Fox 24 said they recognized Barnett, and confirmed his identity with members of the Benton County Republicans in Arkansas.

Barnett, a resident of Gravette, Arkansas repeated his quarter story to 5 News Online. He said he was sitting at the desk, and found himself to be bleeding on the envelope.

"I picked up the envelope, and put it in my pocket, and I put a quarter on the desk," he said. "Because I'm not a thief."

Well, Mr. Bigo Barnett, you go right ahead and think you're slick.  But that envelope is addressed to someone other than you.  Stealing mail is a federal offense.  

The penalty for theft or receipt of stolen mail is  imprisonment not more than 5 years  or a fine or both in accordance with 18 U.S. Code § 1708. The fines can be up to $250,000. source

Looks like 'Bigo' is a straight up idiot.

Oh he is definitely an idiot, he actually showed up to this thing and believes dumbass Trump (you have to be incredibly stupid to believe him) and if he thinks the envelope is the biggest problem he faces then he is even dumber than I imagined.

He may remain comfortable with his for another 13 days.  Then the FBI may come a knocking...

While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
“’Tis some visitor,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door—
 Only this and nothing more.”

I'm sure he thinks it's funny, but it's not. It's violent, invasive, and creepy.

60 years old! You think he'd be old enough to know better. Old enough to have outgrown juvenile behavior like this. Maybe more than anything, I am amazed at the age of some of these people.

Not at all. He showed up to this thing in the first place, he is a fucking idiot. He needs to be sent to prison, all of those people do to send a message that insurrection will not be tolerated.

That's what blows my mind. He is going to prison, I expect. He must have known that. I mean, does he really think he'll get probation for this? This is a guy who has decided he just doesn't have anything to lose, I guess.

That's a great defence for a lawyer to try in court to defend a thief: "He didn't STEAL that diamond ring, He left a quarter there to pay for it."  LOL.

Charge him with  whatever crimes can be proven.

I’m sure Kamala Harris and liberal celebrities  who spent the summer bailing out Molotov cocktail throwers, arsonists and looters will be rushing to pay his bail and complaining about how unjust it is to imprison those exercising their first amendment rights to protest “mostly peacefulLy”

Someone told me that the moron Facebook Trumpsters are claiming that any violent or criminal activity yesterday in the capital building was done by antifa actors.  Trumpsters need to spread the word that Bigo is Arkansas antifa!!!  Get him!!!

And the same progressives  who laugh at those claims will turn around and tell you with a straight face that all the violence at the left wing riots over the summer were perpetrated by “outside agitators” and “right wing provocateurs.”

funny stuff indeed.

Uhhh ... intending to blend in with antifa does not magically place antifa at the scene.  Come back with some evidence of antifa being there, especially dressed in black as these douchebags expected.  I know that you guys are anti-evidence and pro-conspiracy, but evidence is required to be taken seriously.  That is why Trump and the republicans just got neutered at the federal level.

How does one blend in with something that isn't there? For you to believe they weren't there is disingenuous. They followed every opportunity to "participate" in every damned protest this year and beyond across the nation. And .............

"I know you that you guys are anti-evidence and pro-conspiracy, "

First, who is "you guys"? And no, I don't believe conspiracy theories with no merit. But, unlike many here, I don't totally dismiss theories just because someone says that's what it is. Don't pretend to know me.

A Washington Times article that echoed claims pushed by the far right did not prove that antifa supporters were part of the mob at the Capitol.

— Representative  Matt   Gaetz , Republican of Florida

False.

Soon after a pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol on Wednesday, members of the far right began pushing the unfounded claim that the mob was made up of liberal activists only posing as Trump supporters.

Several posts on social media shared by thousands of people held up photographs as evidence that supporters of antifa — a loosely organized collective of antifascist activists — were behind the unrest. The far right website The Washington Times published an article that said two men seen in photos from inside the Capitol matched two antifa members from Philadelphia.

But those images did not, in fact, reveal antifa involvement. Instead, some of the photographs, and the information contained in them, were matched to an antifa site intended to expose known individuals in the neo-Nazi movement.

You like ignoring inconvenient words.

intend
verb [ T ]
UK  /ɪnˈtend/ US  /ɪnˈtend/
 
B1
to have as a plan or purpose:
[ + to infinitive ] We intend to go to Australia next year.
Somehow I offended him, which wasn't what I'd intended.
[ + obj + to infinitive ] I don't think she intended me to hear the remark.
The course is intended for intermediate-level students.
It was intended as a compliment, honestly!

And yet here you are defending yet another baseless conspiracy theory - on an article demonstrating actual evidence that it was garbage Trump supporters that broke into the capital building and engaged in violence and destruction.  This just goes to show how impossible it is to reason with the right.  It’s one excuse after another - the more you get proven wrong, the more deranged and implausible your conspiracies get.

You have a comprehension problem. I said "with no merit" and THAT is not what this is. It is based on past "performance" of that group and, with their history of just being there, is an indication that there may be some merit in antifa's participation. 
That you poo poo it due to the inconvenience of having actually admit that this wasn't all Trump supporters causing the violence/destruction is again, disingenuous.

I am positive you think you have a point there. Sadly, as is a normal practice for a few members here, some concentrate on one word to super analyze trying to prove their intellectual superiority with their comments.

Not getting involved with that type of bullshit. It is meant only to antagonize and assume proof of the sense of "I am right and you are stupid"

Ain't buying what you're selling.

1 word can change the meaning of the entire sentence (in the English language).  In your case, that is while you completely ignored the word "intending".

The headline that Hal posted means that the Proud Boys thought and/or expected antifa to be there. So far no evidence has shown that they were.

The majority of the violence during the protests was done by outside agitators and right wing white supremacists, the same morons/domestic terrorists that did what happened at the Capitol Wednesday.
