At least 3 Oregonians appear to join U.S. Capitol insurrection
Three men who participated in efforts to storm the Oregon Capitol building Dec. 21 also appear to have traveled to Washington D.C to take part in last week's failed insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, Oregon Public Broadcasting reports.
Images captured on social media and national television show what appear to be two of the men inside the U.S. Capitol as part of the mob attack that left five people dead and temporarily stopped Congress from certifying electoral college votes for President-elect Joe Biden. The third man was part of the mob but evidence has not shown he entered the building.
A review of video and photos from both events by Oregon Public Broadcasting shows men whose appearance matches David Anthony Medina, 31, of Sherwood; Tim Davis, 59, of Springfield; and a third man who OPB has not been able to identify by name but appears to be the same person. None of the men have faced criminal charges for participating in either rally.
