A laptop was stolen from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office during the storming of the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, one of her aides said on Friday.
The laptop was kept in a conference room and used for presentations, the aide added.
South Carolina Democrat Jim Clyburn told reporters after the breach that he had an iPad stolen, but an aide later told reporters that the device is actually “safe and sound”.
“In the chaos on Wednesday, a staffer moved it to a more secure location and other staff was not aware,” said Clyburn’s spokesman.
Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley also said he had a laptop computer stolen from a desk in his office.
“This is probably going to take several days to flesh out exactly what happened, what was stolen, what wasn’t,” Michael Sherwin, acting US attorney for the District of Columbia, told reporters on Thursday.
“Items, electronic items, were stolen from senators’ offices. Documents, materials, were stolen, and we have to identify what was done, mitigate that, and it could have potential national security equities. If there was damage, we don’t know the extent of that yet.”
