U.s. Capitol

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — “We’re looking for Nancy Pelosi’s laptop,” FBI agents told Marilyn Hueper after briefly handcuffing her.

Charles Donohoe's attorney has filed an appeal to a decision to keep Donohoe in federal custody. Lisa Costner, the attorney, says that Donohoe, a Kernersville resident, didn't attack law-enforcement officers or destroy property during the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol and returned home afterward, where he focused on raising his 5-year-old son, going to work and helping find a missing 14-year-old Davidson County girl who was abducted and later found alive in another state. 

Charles Donohoe, local Proud Boys leader and Kernersville resident, is appealing the decision to keep him in federal custody. A federal judge ruled that he should remain detained last week. Donohoe, president of the Piedmont chapter of the Proud Boys, is accused, among other things, of creating new messaging chats to avoid law-enforcement detection in the days before the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden declared Wednesday night that “America is rising anew” as he called for an expansion of federal programs to drive the economy past the pandemic and broadly extend the social safety net on a scale not seen in decades.

Charles Donohoe, Proud Boys leader who lives in Kernersville, was at a hearing to determine if he stays in federal custody. Prosecutors portray him as a pivotal and influential leader who helped get hundreds of people from around the country to come to Washington, D.C. to storm the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. But his attorney said Donohoe wasn't involved in the planning and only decided at the last minute to go to Washington, D.C. A judge will decide on Thursday whether to keep Donohoe in federal custody. 

The Trump supporters who stormed the U.S. Capitol in January created a trove of self-incriminating evidence, thoroughly documenting their actions and words in videos and social media posts. Now some of the camera-toting people in the crowd are claiming they were there only to record history as journalists, not to join a deadly insurrection.
