A reported former US Marine from upstate New York fired up a “victory” cigar after breaking into the US Capitol last week — and was part of a gun-toting group that discussed returning there on Inauguration Day, federal authorities alleged Friday.
Dominic “Spaz” Pezzola and his unidentified pals also allegedly said they would have killed any lawmakers “they got their hands on” during the siege, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif,) and Vice President Mike Pence.
Pezzola is accused of using a stolen Capitol Police plastic shield to smash a window and climb into the building as someone yelled “Go, Go, Go!” around 2:40 p.m. on Jan. 6, according to court papers that say the incident was captured on video.
Images of the break-in are included in the document, along with a screenshot from an online video that allegedly shows Pezzola — who Vice identified as a 43-year-old member of the “Proud Boys” and a former US Marine — smoking a cigar inside the Capitol.
“Victory smoke in the Capitol, boys. This is f–king awesome. I knew we could take this motherf–ker over [if we] just tried hard enough,” he allegedly said.
