A former investigative reporter with the Associated Press, who now teaches the subject at the University of Florida says that the rioter who was photographed in the Capitol Building holding a lectern was not a Trump voter.
According to Professor Ted Bridis, the man in the photograph is Adam Christian Johnson of Florida. Voting records show that he has not voted in any elections since 2002 and is not a registered Republican.
Members of the news media have argued since Wednesday that the riot which overtook Capitol Hill, was incited by President Donald Trump. While some Trump supporters in the crowd have been positively identified, it now appears that others who were present such as Johnson had no affiliation with Trump or the Republican Party, and were seeking to cause frivolous destruction.
