Nancy Pelosi’s Lectern Returned After Being Stolen By U.S. Capitol Rioter

#Roommates, a week after pro-Trump rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol and broke into the offices of Congress members, Nancy Pelosi’s lectern (that was stolen by rioter Adam Johnson) has officially been returned. Despite Trump supporters breaking into Pelosi’s office and leaving threatening messages while rummaging through her personal belongings—her prized lectern was found after a swift investigation leading to Johnson’s arrest.

@TMZ_TV reports Nancy Pelosi’s lectern is rightfully back at the U.S. Capitol where it belongs exactly one week after Florida resident Adam Johnson was seen in a viral photo carrying it out of the Capitol during the pro-Trump riots. House Speaker Pelosi’s lectern was wheeled into the Capitol building and surprisingly didn’t sustain any damage—however, there is currently no word on if her gavel was returned as well.

As we previously reported, Adam Johnson was arrested last week courtesy of a federal warrant in Florida for his role in the riots. Images of the 36-year-old were heavily circulated online during and after the riots.

Johnson is slated to appear later this month in D.C. to formally face additional charges, but his lawyer Dan Eckhart recently admitted to reporters that the case will be an uphill battle due to the photographic evidence.

“You have a photograph of our client in a building, unauthorized to be there, with what appears to be a podium or a lectern. Yeah, I don’t know how to explain that. But, that would be a problem. I’m not a magician,” he said.
