Buzzfeed News reports:
A man from Dallas, Texas is facing multiple charges after storming the Capitol and tweeting “Assassinate AOC” that same day, according to documents from the Department of Justice. Garret Miller faces five criminal charges, including alleged unlawful entry and “threat to injure” others.
The FBI agent who gave a statement of facts for the case said Miller posted on social media about the insurrection both before and on Jan. 6, and shared photos of himself inside the building alongside other rioters.
On Jan. 6, he tweeted a video of himself in the Capitol, which he captioned “From inside congress.” He also shared a selfie from inside the Capitol on Facebook, where he wrote, “just wanted to incriminate myself a little lol.”
The New York Post reports:
“Mr. Miller takes responsibility for his actions taken on January 6 on behalf of his support for former President Trump and wants to move forward and put this behind him. He has the support of his family and his comments reflect misguided political hyperbole that will not be repeated,” his attorney, Clint Broden said in a statement.
