Who are Paul, Marilyn Hueper? Alaska couple says FBI raided home with guns drawn looking for Nancy Pelosi’s laptop
ANCHORAGE, ALASKA: A couple from Alaska claimed that their house was raided by the FBI and that the agents' guns were drawn. The couple also claimed that the raid happened in search of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's laptop. This is the same laptop that had been reported missing after the Capitol riots that took place on January 6.
They also revealed that the FBI left after hours of interrogation. It was revealed that the entire incident occurred as a result of mistaken identity. The couple did attend the rally that took place in Washington DC on January 6 but claims that they did not enter the Capitol building.
Who are Paul and Marilyn Hueper?
Paul and Marilyn Hueper's home was the one that was raided in Alaska. Speaking about the incident Marilyn, who is also one of the Homer Inn and Spa owners, said that she and Paul went to Washington DC to "peacefully protest" on January 6 and they had not entered the Capitol building where the riots took place. She recalled how the agents were in the living quarters and said that she could probably guess why they were there.
She said, "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.'" She was also asked who she was working for, and she had instead responded with laughter. She then said, "I don’t mean to be disrespectful and laughing, but this is really surreal and strange."
A spokesperson for the FBI’s Anchorage field office, Chloe Martin, confirmed that agents conducted a court-authorized law enforcement activity at the Homer Inn and Spa. Martin spoke to AP and said, "While individuals are free to speak about their interactions with the FBI, we do not, as a matter of practice, discuss or describe any contact we have or allegedly have with individuals," and added, "At this time, and until it reaches the public realm, we can’t discuss the details."
Paul, also revealed that he had taken a picture of his wife on the steps of the Capitol Building which was no closer than 100 yards (91 meters) from the entrance of the building. The picture is also posted on Instagram. Marilyn had also claimed that the agents had claimed that there was video footage of her inside the building. However, she said that this was a case of mistaken identity. She acknowledged that the woman in the video was close to the same age and had the same hairstyle as her but that was where the similarities ended. She said, "This chick looks like she has detached earlobes, which makes me jealous," and added, "I’ve always wanted detached earlobes."
