The woman under investigation is Riley Jone Williams, according to an affidavit of the case to which the Politico news portal has had access. “It appears that Williams has fled,” the document said. “According to local authorities in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Williams’ mother has stated that she packed a suitcase and left home and told her mother that she would be away for a few weeks. 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.
