A few days ago we told you about reports that the FBI raided the home of a woman who was near the U.S. Capitol on January 6th. The woman said they were looking for Nancy Pelosi’s laptop computer:
Alaska couple asleep when armed FBI agents break down door. Emerge from bedroom, seven guns pointed at them. Why? Attended 1/6 Trump rally; insist never got closer than 100 yards to Capitol. Agents don't believe; say 'We're here for Nancy Pelosi's laptop.' https://t.co/VRaFBLB3FH

It was an apparent case of mistaken identity, as the FBI was looking for a woman in a similar coat who was inside the Capitol that day and raided the wrong home. However, out of an abundance of fact-check caution, the Associated Press is rating “did agents raid the wrong home” as a “maybe”:

Yep, that’s the actual headline to the story:
Two people said they recognized an Alaska woman in photos of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, according to a warrant obtained by @AP. Agents then raided her home in Homer, but didn't find what they were looking for. https://t.co/MjtoOzgARJ

Maybe, this is not a maybe subject… Either they did or they didn't. Journalism is dead. https://t.co/vPZixh2jsn

Why was that a RIOT and the real riots that burn down cities are 'peaceful protests'?
