FBI: Rioter Threatened To Kill His Kids For Snitching

Reuters reports:

A man associated with a self-styled militia group that helped break into the Capitol on Jan. 6 threatened to kill his children if they cooperated with police, according to federal authorities.

In an affidavit submitted in D.C. federal court, an FBI agent wrote that Guy Reffitt was identified through video taken at the Capitol and cellphone tracking data. In the video, he appears to be cleaning chemical irritants out of his eyes.

During a search of his home on Saturday, Reffitt’s adult son told an FBI agent that his father came home two days after the insurrection, carrying an AR-15 rifle and a Smith & Wesson pistol, and revealed that he had gone armed to D.C. and “stormed the Capitol.”
