'We're here for Nancy Pelosi's laptop': Trump supporter reveals 'surreal' moment FBI raided her Alaska home in hunt for computer stolen during the Capitol riot - but she claims it's a case of mistaken identity

 An Alaska couple say the FBI carried out a raid on their home looking for a laptop stolen from Nancy Pelosi's office because they claimed they had photographic evidence they were in the US Capitol during the January 6 riots. 

Federal agents served the search warrant at Marilyn and Paul Hueper's home in Homer, Alaska, on Wednesday.

Marilyn said the agents told her: 'We're here for Nancy Pelosi's laptop.'


The couple, who attended then-President Donald Trump's rally in Washington on the day of the riots, claim the raid was a case of mistaken identity. 

Marilyn said agents claimed there was photographic evidence that she was inside the Capitol during the riot; something she denies.

When agents arrived at their home, which is also a boutique resort, Marilyn said agents told her she probably knew why they were there.

'I was like, "Yeah, no, not really,"' she told Kenai radio station KSRM. 

'And 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 said. 


Pelosi's deputy chief of staff, Drew Hammill, confirmed on January 8 that a laptop was taken from a conference room but said 'it was a laptop that was only used for presentations'.

Agents then asked her who she was working with, Marilyn said. She replied by starting to laugh before apologizing to the agent.

'I don't mean to be disrespectful and laughing, but this is really surreal and strange,' she said of her exchange with the agent.

Marilyn said the FBI confiscated laptop computers and a cellphone during the raid.

He posted that photo on Instagram.

She said agents told her there was video footage of her in the building but Marilyn claims it's a case of mistaken identity.

Agents showed her photos of a woman wearing a black Columbia coat with white lettering on the left shoulder, the same as she was wearing, she said, acknowledging both women were close in age with a similar hairstyle.

That is where the similarities ended, she said. 

The woman was wearing a sweater that Marilyn claimed she would never own, and she said she has attached earlobes.

'This chick looks like she has detached earlobes, which makes me jealous,' Marilyn said of the woman in the screen grabs. 

'I've always wanted detached earlobes.'

Chloe Martin, a spokesperson for the FBI's Anchorage field office, confirmed agents conducted a court-authorized law enforcement activity at the Homer Inn and Spa.

'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,' she said. 

'At this time, and until it reaches the public realm, we can't discuss the details.'
