Daily Beast: “A pickup truck parked at the United States Capitol and bearing a Three Percenter militia sticker on the day of the Jan. 6 riot belongs to the husband of freshman U.S. Rep. Mary Miller of Illinois, who approvingly quoted Adolf Hitler a day earlier. Researchers on Twitter first noticed the Ford pickup truck with the far-right militia’s decal parked on the Capitol grounds in footage posted to social media and taken by CBS News. The presence of a vehicle with a militia decal so close to the Capitol, inaccessible to normal vehicle traffic, raised questions about how it got there – and whether it belonged to any of the hundreds of suspects involved in the deadly riot.
“But in an email to The Daily Beast, Chris Miller, Rep. Miller’s husband and a member of the Illinois House of Representatives, conceded the truck belonged to him even as he pleaded ignorance about the militia group. ‘Army friend gave me decal. Thought it was a cool decal. Took it off because of negative pub,’ Miller wrote in an email late Thursday. He says he ‘never was member’ of the militia and ‘didn’t know anything about 3% till fake news started this fake story and read about them.’ A request for comment to the office of U.S. Rep. Miller was not returned prior to publication. The link between the truck and Rep. Miller was first reported on Twitter on Thursday by the @capitolhunters account, which is organizing research about rioters seen in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot from a large community of volunteers reviewing thousands of hours of footage.”
