Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “What we know about the laptop that was stolen from Nancy Pelosi's aide during the Capitol siege”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

When US Capitol staff returned to work following the violent insurrection by pro-Trump extremists, they found broken windows and their offices pillaged.

While far-right activists have already started spreading misinformation about the device — with some claiming it was taken by US Special Forces because it contained evidence of election fraud — there is no evidence that's the case.

The disinformation has stemmed from comments made by Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney.
