A man who wore his company badge while storming the U.S. Capitol has been terminated from his marketing job.
According to WBALTV, the terrorist, who remains unnamed, was fired from Navistar Direct Marketing, which is a company based in Maryland. The corporation released a statement about their decision to part ways with the man, who they say demonstrated “dangerous conduct.”
“Navistar Direct Marketing was made aware that a man wearing a Navistar company badge was seen inside the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 during the security breach,” the company said in a statement on Thursday (Jan. 7). “After review of the photographic evidence, the employee in question has been terminated for cause.”
“While we support all employee’s right to peaceful, lawful exercise of free speech, any employee demonstrating dangerous conduct that endangers the health and safety of others will no longer have an employment opportunity with Navistar Direct Marketing,” the statement continued.
The man was among the hundreds of Trump supporters who breached the security barriers of the U.S. Capitol and entered the building. The men and women were caught on video taking pictures with historical statues and looting podiums. A man was also photographed sitting at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s desk. He had his feet kicked up on her desk and left a threatening note on one of her folders, which read, “WE WILL NOT BACK DOWN.”
Four people died as a result of the violence that took place, including one woman who has been identified as Ashli Babbit. She was shot while trying to climb through a broken window in the U.S. Capitol.
The FBI is now offering a $1,000 rewards for any information leading to the arrests of these terrorists who were involved in Wednesday’s violence. “Our goal is to preserve the public’s constitutional right to protest by protecting everyone from violence and other criminal activity,” the bureau said in a statement.
