Williams did not tell her mother where she intended to go “, says the text.

A witness has informed authorities that she had seen a video of Williams “taking a laptop or hard drive from Pelosi’s office.” “She said that Williams intended to send it to a friend in Russia to sell it to the SVR, the Russian secret services for the exterior,” the document states.
