Prosecutors show new security footage of riot

Richard Barnett, the Arkansas man who was photographed with his feet propped on a desk in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office on Jan. 6, had a 950,000-volt stun gun tucked into his waistband, Rep. Stacey Plaskett, D-Virgin Islands, revealed.

House impeachment managers showed security footage of staffers rushing to safety, locking themselves in rooms just minutes before rioters into Pelosi’s offices.

Plaskett played audio from one of Pelosi’s aides pleading for help in a phone call after staff members barricaded themselves in a conference room.

“They’re pounding on the doors trying to find her,” the staffer whispered into the phone.

A Pelosi aide later said they could hear the mob rummaging through her offices and yelling, “Where are you, Nancy?”
