The uprising on January 6 at the United States Capitol was filmed, and footage of the event has shown that Angela Ng and Joseph Murray, both of whom are associated with Representative George Santos (R-New York), were there.
The journalists Jacqueline Sweet and David Corn of Mother Jones stated that video and photographic evidence placed Murray and Ng in the Capitol among the crowd, taking images of their own and trespassing on Capitol grounds:
Murray and Ng, who were a part of the crowd of angry Trump supporters, pushed down barricades, entered restricted areas, and made their way up the steps on the north side of the building. They stood there and watched as hundreds of protesters in the area smashed the doors of the Capitol building and rushed inside the building. Murray, a lawyer, videotaped the event.
Santos has been plagued by a plethora of legal issues and falsehoods ever since he was elected to Congress in November of last year; Murray has been representing Santos throughout this time as his attorney. Ng is the office manager for Murray.
Philip Grillo, a Republican and a former district leader from Queens said he saw Murray leading a charge up the hill. Mother Jones has stipulated that Murray nor Ng are not seen committing any acts of violence in the videos. Grillo insists, though, that Murray was encouraging people to follow him.
The associates of Santos were also seen in close proximity to a number of individuals who have been charged for their activities at the Capitol. These individuals include a former candidate for the governorship of Michigan named Ryan Kelley and an anonymous person called “Insider-#2330.” A group known as the Sedition Hunters named #2330. They have been combing through the footage from January 6 to identify people there.
Santos has declined to reveal where he was on January 6, 2021, although he was seen attending a speech given earlier that day by former President Donald Trump while wearing a scarf reportedly stolen from another person.
