Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From News.yahoo.com: “Capitol rioter threatened to shoot his own children if they reported him, say officials”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

FBI’s affidavit includes seven photos from several clips that played in the US media and led to the identification of Guy Reffitt

A Texas man, arrested for allegedly being part of the riotous mob that attacked the US Capitol building on 6 January, also threatened to shoot his children if they turned him in, according to the FBI.

Guy Reffitt, 48, a licensed driver from Wylie, Texas, is one of the latest additions to the list of people booked for the Capitol violence. He was arrested on Saturday by the FBI and is charged with unlawful entry, for being in the US Capitol, and obstruction of justice, for threatening his family to prevent them from talking to the police.

The affidavit by FBI also mentioned that Mr Reffitt has ties to the militia extremist group “Texas Freedom Force” and two firearms were recovered from his place at the time of his arrest.

The father of two allegedly told his family that he brought a gun to DC during the Capitol riots. The son, according to the affidavit, told the FBI that his father said he went to the Capitol to “protect the country”. He also said Mr Reffitt used “we” -- hinting that he had a team along with him -- “stormed the Capitol.”
