Because her parents had attended the January 6 rally at the Capitol, a squad of 40 heavily-armed FBI agents held an 11-year-old girl at gunpoint while raiding her family’s Georgia home.
The agents, who arrived in four armored trucks, broke into the property on August 10 about five miles north of Covington in Newton County, according to the girl’s father, Donnie Hyatt.
Hyatt and his wife are accused of having ties to a far-right militia leader named Chris Hill, and they attended the rally in Washington, DC on January 6.
They did not participate in the storming of the Capitol.
Just take a minute to let that sink in.
The Dailymail reports Hyatt said he was in his car on his long driveway when the agents came to raid the property around 7am, and says electronics and communications devices including phones as well as computers were seized.
The agents’ laser sights were aimed at her, he said, and she is ‘pretty shaken’ by the experience: ‘She still shakes when she talks about it.’
