The woman accused of stealing a laptop used by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's staff during the January 6 Capitol Hill mob-attack appears to have also been posting in a notorious neo-Nazi chatroom.

An anonymous tipster provided screenshots allegedly showing Riley June Williams under a known alias that was previously reported, participating in "The Camps"—a racist and neo-Nazi chat room linked to military veteran and moderately-known, Christopher Pohlhaus, 34, and his online network. Pohlhaus, an ex-Marine, said that the alias believed to be Williams' no longer has anything to do with his online following and was only inside chats that he described as a basic and open "vetting" room. (Posts inside The Camps are littered with racist epithets and antisemitic screeds).

VICE News shared the screenshots with four independent extremism researchers who all said the images appeared to be authentic and undoctored. Three of them, who have studied Williams closely since January 6, said the alias, dates of the posts, and general content matched-up to her known social media behavior and activities.
