Friends of an American gun owner, whose home was raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) last week in conjunction with the January 6 investigations, claim the FBI covered up security cameras and held the gun owner and his girlfriend at gunpoint.
Sharing alleged video of the FBI’s actions on X, formerly Twitter, the Hodgetwins stated, “Last week, a friend of ours was raided by the feds over J6, his name is Nathan Hughes, and he’s from Fayetteville, Arkansas.”
According to the Hodgetwins, the FBI arrested Hughes “at gunpoint,” while his girlfriend, who the Hodgetwins said had a miscarriage recently, was “held at gunpoint” and was “put in handcuffs.”
“The FBI turned off his security cameras, unplugged his internet, and flipped his house upside down in a search,” the Hodgetwins added. “The feds called the manufacturer of his Liberty Gun Safe and got the passcode to get into it, too. All for protesting at the Capitol over 2 1/2 years ago.”
The Hodgetwins noted that Hughes is facing charges in relation to his participation in the January 6 Capitol riot. However, the Hodgetwins claimed that Hughes was not guilty of assaulting anyone or vandalizing anything during the events of January 6.
“He is being labeled a domestic terrorist and a traitor to his country by woke leftists and the media,” the Hodgetwins said. “Nate is just like us… he’s an outspoken American Patriot…he loves freedom, loves his country, and would do anything to preserve our rights. He’s been fighting to save our country for years now.”
The Hodgetwins argued that while groups such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter are able to “burn down our cities and get off the hook,” supporters of former President Donald Trump “get raided and rounded up for protesting.”
Video footage shared by the Hodgetwins shows Hughes being arrested outside of his car with his hands raised. The footage captures the moment four FBI agents took Hughes into custody. A second video shared by the Hodgetwins shows about 10 law enforcement vehicles approaching the home of Hughes as part of the FBI raid.
The arrest of Hughes drew attention when it was announced Tuesday that popular gun safe maker Liberty Safe provided the FBI with the access codes of his personal gun safe.
