FBI Arrests Nitwit Who Stole Nancy Pelosi’s Lectern During Capitol Invasion

The FBI last night arrested the Florida Insurrectionist who was seen walking through the Capitol Rotunda carrying a lectern pilfered during the invasion of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office.

Adam Christian Johnson, 36, was collared Friday evening and booked into the Pinellas County jail on federal felony charges. Seen in the mug shot below, Johnson is being held without bond in the local lockup on a United States Marshals Service warrant.

Johnson, who lives with his family in Parrish, a community about 40 miles south of Tampa, has been charged with theft of government property, violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, and unlawfully entering a restricted building.

In a statement of facts accompanying the criminal complaint filed against Johnson, FBI Agent Michael Jeng reported that Pelosi’s lectern, valued at more than $1000, was found post-insurrection by a Senate staffer in a corridor of the Capitol’s Senate wing. The lectern had been stored in Pelosi’s suite of offices.

The court filing also included a photo from Johnson’s Facebook page showing him posing next to a sign noting that an area of the Capitol building was “Closed to all tours.” The image (seen below) was captioned “No.”   

According to jail records, Johnson was booked around 9 PM last night. He will remain in custody in advance of an initial appearance in U.S. District Court.

As TSG reported Thursday, Johnson, a Tennessee native, is married to a doctor and lives in a home the couple purchased in 2016 for about $400,000. His rap sheet includes marijuana possession arrests in 2003 and 2004, and a probation violation bust.

When Florida jailers booked Johnson yesterday, they noted his tatttoos: “God, wings, cross.”
