ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Federal agents served a search warrant at a boutique resort in Homer, Alaska, saying they were looking for a laptop stolen from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office during the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, one of the Homer Inn and Spa owners said.
Agents on Wednesday confiscated laptop computers and a cellphone, owner Marilyn Hueper said. A cellphone belonging to her husband, Paul Hueper, was also forensically audited by agents but not confiscated, she said.
Marilyn Hueper said agents also claimed there was photographic evidence that she was inside the Capitol during the riot; something she denies. No arrests were made Wednesday.
The couple attended then-President Donald Trump’s rally in Washington on the day of the insurrection but denied entering the Capitol.
When agents arrived at their living quarters at the resort on Wednesday, she said agents told her she probably knew why they were there.
“I was like, ‘Yeah, no, not really,’” she told Kenai radio station KSRM. The Huepers did not immediately return a message The Associated Press left on the resort’s phone Friday.
“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 Jan. 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 Hueper said. She replied by starting to laugh, and then apologized to the agent. “I don’t mean to be disrespectful and laughing, but this is really surreal and strange,” she told the radio station.

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 in a Friday email to the AP. “At this time, and until it reaches the public realm, we can’t discuss the details.”
Paul Hueper said he took a photo of his wife walking up the Capitol steps on Jan. 6, but they were no closer than 100 yards (91 meters) from the building entrance. He posted that photo on Instagram.
She said agents told her there was video footage of her in the building, but Marilyn Hueper 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, Marilyn Hueper said, acknowledging both women were close in age with a similar hairstyle.
That is where the similarities ended, she told the station. The woman was wearing a sweater that Marilyn Hueper 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 Hueper said of the woman in the screen grabs. “I’ve always wanted detached earlobes.”

Old J. Edgar sure would be very proud of his boys other than being somewhat disappointed they couldn’t get a black APC there in time for the big raid. God help us all.
BTW what are “detached earlobes”…anybody? I’m an old guy that doesn’t get out much.
More and more, i am having a hard as hell time, justifying ANY respect for the Federal bumbling idiots… I have more respect for street sweepers and ambulance chasers than i do these hacks.
Look at old pictures of biden, 74-2018 and the new biden 2019-current.
that will give you both types.
To the ends of the Earth for Pelosi’s but they can’t even find Hunter Biden’s in their own evidence room.
Find Biden Innocent.
The political team…..Your FBI. The DNC’s palace guard.
I wonder, HOW MANY MORE incidents like this must happen, before folks like Hannity and Tucker STOP KISSING their butts, and saying “The rank and file are still good, honorable people”????
not even when they raided Rudy Giuliani’s home and offices last week and he OFFERED THEM.
AND one wonders, WHO CALLED THE PRESS to be outside guillianni’s home, WHILE THEY DID that raid!
The “Socialist Democrat Party State” political officers, Gestapo, Woke and Cancel Culture are just getting started.
You will obey, be loyal and support the “Socialist Democrat Party State” or you will be classified as
“Enemies of the State”.
24 Aug. 2020 – Monday on MSNBC’s “Live,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)
referred to President Donald Trump and his Republican allies as “domestic enemies” and “enemies of the State”.
This Democrat Party needs to be destroyed or We the People will end up being
Servants, Subjects, Slaves and Wards to this “Socialist Democrat Party State” 🙁 🙁 🙁
I agree with everything you said except I feel the democrat party ceased to exist decades ago as it was absorbed into the American socialist party and is rapidly morphing into the communist party. The word democrat, as in democrat party, is actually an archaic obsolete term. OBTW, please folks do not ever refer to them as the democratic party. Democratic is one thing they never have been.
It didn’t morph into the socialist party, it SKIPPED socialist, and went right to communist party USA.
The dem party was ASSASSINATED WITH KENNEDY.
Johnson was a different creature.
Part of me STILL FEELS the assassination of Kennedy, was done BY the dems, as they disliked him…
I think that we have “photographic evidence”, every time we show a photo of FBI buildings, they represent the Gestapo and Stasi of the Joe Criminal Crime Family.
Well, after all, they did the same for Hillary and Hunter didn’t they?
When do we hear about the Durham report? Is that a WHAT difference does it make now, statement?
That report has been killed and buried..
Idiots. It is clear that the woman with the mask in the picture on the left is not the woman in the four pictures on the right hand side. I wonder how much federal money has been spent on this wild goose chase. It really makes me feel safe to know these federal morons who are supposed to be protecting us from terrorists and foreign spies are on the job.
These are the same idiots, who keep saying “WE KNEW this mass shooter was a threat or of concern” damn near EVERY TIME we have a mass shooting.. YET THEY DID NOTHING TO stop that shooter, from clearing the backround checks to get guns they used IN those shootings…
AND we are supposed to believe that they are some how smart now, in finding that one woman is the same as the other???
I’m sure there are things on there she doesn’t want to be made public. All of their secret deals and their shady alliances. While we are well aware that there is rampant corruption in Congress, we would probably be stunned if we could see even one tenth of what is on the laptops of Congressional members.
I hope they sue the hxxll out of the FBI.
Sorry it’s to late Piglosi we know what is on it now good try though !
