South Carolina’s The State reports:
Two more alleged South Carolina rioters in the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection have been arrested by the FBI, bringing the total number of people with S.C. ties arrested to seven.
John Getsinger Jr. and Stacie Hargis-Getsinger, of Hanahan, a city in Berkeley County just north of Charleston, were arraigned Tuesday afternoon in Charleston before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mary Gordon Baker in a initial proceeding where they were presented with the charges against them.
According to a criminal complaint in the case, four people called an FBI tips line separately to report information they had about the couple making claims about being in the Capitol on Jan. 6. One caller told the FBI that a video exists of “the Getsingers entering the Capitol Building saying, “This is War! We’re storming the Capitol!” according to the criminal complaint.
