The FBI has released new surveillance video showing the person suspected of planting pipe bombs around Washington D.C. on the night before the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
Video recorded between 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Jan. 5 shows the suspect placing bombs near the headquarters of the Republican and Democratic National Committees.
The suspected bomber left the first device in an alley behind the RNC, which is located at 310 First Street Southeast.
The FBI says at 1:00 p.m. EST on January 6, multiple law enforcement agencies received reports of a suspected pipe bomb with wires at the headquarters of the Republican National Committee in Washington, D.C.
Fifteen minutes later, a second suspected pipe bomb was reported at the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee in Washington, D.C.
The FBI had already released still photos of the suspect – including ones that showed identifying details of his Nike sneakers – offering $100,000 for any information leading to his arrest.
The bombs never detonated and may have been placed as a distraction to keep police away when a pro-Trump mob breached the building where lawmakers were voting to certify Joe Biden’s election victory.
