With guns drawn, FBI raids Homer couple’s home looking for Nancy Pelosi’s laptop

Paul and Marilyn Hueper, owners of Homer Inn & Spa, woke with a start at 9 a.m. April 28 when a dozen armed FBI agents kicked down their front door in an investigation associated with Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s stolen laptop, which was taken during the Jan. 6 siege of the nation’s Capitol.

Speaking April 29 to Kenai-based radio host Bob Bird of the Bird’s Eye View, Paul recalled that he was alarmed and shocked to come out of his bedroom with seven guns pointing at him and his wife.

“It was a little alarming when I turned around the corner,” Paul said. “The first thing they did was start barking out commandments.”

Ultimately, the couple was handcuffed and interrogated for the better part of three hours before being released. In the end, it was a case of mistaken identity.

The Huepers were in D.C. for the rally with President Trump, but they never came close to entering the Capitol, and certainly never took Pelosi’s laptop.

It appears the FBI were most interested in Marilyn. They had a photo of a woman wearing the same coat as her, and with a similar hairstyle. The photo was taken from Capitol building cameras, according to Marilyn, but beyond the hair and coat, there is little similarity between Marilyn and the woman photographed inside the Capitol.

The entire saga, however, left the Huepers disoriented but determined to better understand and defend their personal liberties and those of their friends and neighbors.

Paul said he repeatedly asked to see a search warrant but was denied until two and a half hours had gone by.

Paul said he repeatedly asked to see a search warrant but was denied until two and a half hours had gone by. During that time, he was separated from his wife.

“We sat there really for the first hour, not knowing what’s going on,” Paul told the Bird’s Eye View. “They never offered for us to be comfortable,” he added, “It was very harshly done.”

Paul said the agents ransacked the house and left a huge hole in his front door, which they offered to replace.

Paul said he knew he was innocent of whatever they suspected of him and his wife, but that it was still “all pretty confusing.”

After more than an hour, the agents told him that the raid had to do with the Jan. 6 siege of the U.S. Capitol.

The Huepers were in D.C. but only to “peacefully protest.”

The Huepers were in D.C. but only to “peacefully protest.”

“That’s what we were there for,” he said, adding that they never broke any laws. In fact, Paul said they never entered the Capitol building and were “at most a hundred yards away” from the entrance.

Agents showed Paul a photo of the woman who did enter the Capitol and asked if that was his wife.

“They had the same coat on,” he told Bird, but said the face of the woman was quite different from his wife’s. “My wife is much better looking than that,” he said.

While separated from her husband, Marilyn was told why the agents were at their home.

“They said, ‘We’re here for Nancy Pelosi’s laptop,” she recalled. “So, I guess it was stolen and it is still at large.”

The agents then claimed that they had positively identified Marilyn as being in the Capitol building and that they wanted to know who she was working with.

Marilyn said she tried to be respectful but couldn’t help but laugh.

“A lot of us have fallen down on the job,” she said of the duty to know and understand basic civil liberties. “The ball lies squarely in our court.”

She asked to see some identification, at which point agents quickly flashed their badges.

“I couldn’t read it fast enough to know what it was,” she said of the badges. She then asked to see a warrant and was told that she “would get to see it” later.

When repeatedly told she was the woman in the photo, Marilyn responded by saying “I would like to know how I split myself into two locations because I didn’t know I had this power.”

The first photo agents showed her was very fuzzy and depicted a woman wearing a similar coat with a similar hairstyle. They then showed her a photo of the woman’s face.

She told them, “Oh that’s obviously not me. Why didn’t you show me that photo to start with?” The woman in the photo has detached earlobes – Marilyn’s are attached, she said. Plus, the woman was wearing a sweater that Marilyn said, “You couldn’t pay me to wear.”

The agents suggested that she was lying and not cooperating, she told Bird.

At no point was the couple read their Miranda rights or charged with any crime, and the agents left after three hours without offering an apology. They also took Marilyn’s phones and laptop, she said.

Both Huepers say the whole ordeal has revealed just how little they know about their legal rights when dealing with the government.

“We really need to understand our latitude of choices,” Marilyn said. This is especially true when you see guns pointed at you and “you don’t want to disappoint them,” she said.

Marilyn said the raid has inspired her to know her rights.

“A lot of us have fallen down on the job,” she said of the duty to know and understand basic civil liberties. “The ball lies squarely in our court.”

Paul agreed, saying he feels “invigorated” to stand up for his personal liberties.

“This energizes me to take the right next step,” he said. “This fires me up to take care of my business as a citizen to do what’s right.”

    The FBI have become the “Keystone Kop, lapdogs, of the democrat party. Running around playing soldier with guns drawn and a sense of superiority. I hope this couple sues the the hide of the government and the Funny Boob Idiots.

    Ditto, there should be some means of compensation for the couple whose privacy was invaded. The FBI is again out of control, seeking to pun ish innocent people merely because they are Trump supporters. I didn’t know it was a crime in this country to support a political party by showing up at a rally.

    Totally uncalled for. Now if P.U.losi’s expensive freezer with its stash of ice cream had been stolen from her, that would be a totally different ballgame.

    The FBI and it’s leadership is definitely out of control and American citizens have a right to be distrustful of them.

    Oh my effing God. No mercy should be shown to the FBI. Arrest every single thug that drew a weapon and imprison the POS that signed off on this debacle. No one should walk away unscathed.
    The FBI is as corrupt as any government agency and should be put out of business ASAP.

    So as the Top at least back to Comey was involved in political games, literally abusing a very narrow, special Warrant – the FISA warrant, going about methodically setting up a Trump supporter and then using the set up to justify bugging a presidential campaign, completely overstepping every line of justice to keep General Flynn (whose expertise was Intelligence)from serving and they greatly feared would find out pretty quickly what they had done, have they completely let up on training for their guys doing the investigating? The stunt the FBI allowed themselves to be used for in the Roger Stone “RAID”, was insane enough, but this incident, their behavior? can they get away with that? Is this legal? If so something needs to be done about it and the ones running this country are going to solidify such behavior, not take it to task and get some answers and some justice. Surely there is something in place in government to take a good look at this and get it rectified!??? I always had huge respect for the FBI and never would have been fearful if they came to my door. But the Roger Stone raid, this story of an innocent American couple, and the latest, the Giuliani raid? – I’m thinking they may need a complete reorganization! Cripes! we do not need a State Police Force with all those horrible connotations!!

    FBI, wrong people! Storm their home. Really! The blm and antifa burning cities and killing people you go looking for Nancy Pelosi laptop? You know she has it. Just to go looking for a ghost. Shame on the FBI. Hope they sue the crap out of these Gestapo unamerican FBI agents. Whoever gave this order needs fired. FBI has no principles left. Hey feds and post office are you reading this. Unamerican pieces of trash.

    I guess they should have actually gone to the Capitol and set fire to a local business after they looted it, and everything would have been OK, and this raid would have never happened.

    These two innocent people both said they need to learn more about their rights… guess what? When the federal storm troopers knock down your door, you HAVE no rights! Those thugs don’t care about the Constitution or any other rights you think you have. They care only about their “mission”. The only way we as Americans can protect our rights is to rise up and force the government to heel, to make them understand that WE are the power in this country, and WE are sick and tired of being bullied by storm troopers taking orders from the DemoNazis in DC!

    The FBI thugs offered to pay for the front door they destroyed? When? What about security for the rest of that night? To be told that they could see search warrant later? Want to bet there was none – it will be created later. I thought a search warrant had to be presented before a search could be done? Do the FBI have a different set of rules from other law enforcement that ignore our constitutional right? It must be some pretty explosive data on Pelosi’s computer! I would like to think that the majority of the FBI are actually good guys and it’s only the corrupt bought and paid for upper echelon that five them a black eye! I hope the Huepers sue the crap out of anyone involved in this Gestapo-style raid and I bet they can win easily at least in the public opinion.

    Several posters mentioned these FBI tactics were like the Gestapo (of Hitler’s rein). Their comment’s are factually incorrect. The FBI incident(s) are akin to Hitler’s rise to power, starting after his very early release from prison April 01, 1924. Almost nine years later, January 30, 1933, he was appointed Chancellor by President Paul vonHindenberg. When Hindenberg died August 2, 1934, Hitler claimed leadership–due to being the head of the largest political party, the Nationalist Socialist Worker’s Party (NAZI) of Germany–Hitler dissolved the positions of Chancellor and President, declaring himself to be the Fuhrer (“leader”) of Germany. The “birth” of the Gestapo, founded by Herman Goering, was in April 1933.

    The start of World War II officially began, upon Hitler’s attack into Poland September 01, 1939–an attack that officially was due to the fakery of Hitler’s own Nazi soldiers dressed in Polish uniforms, attacking from Poland into (Hitler’s own) Germany!! The terrorist attacks, against Jews and Slavs–in Germany were occurring in 1938 (Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass, November 9-10, 1938) by the SA (paramilitary) forces long before WWII began September 01, 1939!!

    Though the tactics of the FBI are similar to 1938 and 1939 Germany by the Gestapo, the FBI is the civilian Legal Arm of the United States government. The Gestapo had nothing to do with enforcing laws (legality) of Germany; the Gestapo was an armed force aiding the NAZI party to gain total German leadership, power and authority. The only similarity is the tactics; the armed members–FBI and Gestapo–are of different authorities, serving different positions, and generally during “peace time!” In either case and/or situation, their actions, tactics and intents are fully illegal…from the beginning to the end.

    Of course, similar actions and tactics are initiated and used by most all tyrannical and fascist wannabe-rulers, seeking power and prestige (Napoleonic Complex ??). Even today, those citizens of Germany, from the late 1930’s and middle 1940’s, still vow they “never saw it coming (meaning the loss of their Freedoms).” It’s always the Radical (Near and Far) Leftist Tyrants and Totalitarians in disguise of “We’re Here To Help You!!”
    My apologizes for the lengthy soapbox oratory!!

    This is the new FBI. Law breaking agency that has no respect for the law or citizens. The agency has no respect from me either. Just a bunch of political thugs. Witch hunt politics that stinks from the director on down. This crap for a raid was obviously based on opinion and im sure lies to a judge to obtain a warrant.

    Now is the time for TRUE RESISTANCE. Find the DA’s, judges, and agents who made the mistake and take them to court. Demand 4 times the costs of repairs, legal fees, and lost income. It the courts REFUSE to hold them accountable, then the people should.

    Vigilante justice is not immoral or illegal if the state can not or WILL NOT hold state criminals accountable.

    I hope they sue the bastards. No miranda statement, no warrant shown, no ID presented for inspection, Gestapo action, just like home-grown terrorists. I guess if they were hunting a 6 year old, they would have used fewer agents. Go crawl in a hole, and take Pelosi with you.

    The first words from anyone attacked like this, especially from a Federal Agency we should to be corrupt to its core, should be, “I want a lawyer,” and it should be repeated after every question they ask.” They are not there to help you. They are not there to be reasoned with. Repeat after me, “I want a Lawyer!”
