Video shows rioter smoking pot in Capitol Rotunda during siege

By Laura Italiano, New York Post

It’s high treason!

In newly uncovered clip from Wednesday’s Capitol siege, an emotional rioter bums a joint in the Rotunda while gasping, “This is our house!”

“We made history guys!” the seemingly hyperventilating green party member says breathlessly after panning his camera up briefly to show the Rotunda’s dome.

“People are smoking weed in here,” he pants.

“Please, please,” he says, turning to another rioter. “May I hit that, please? May I make history with you?”

Handed an apparent joint, he adds, “I’m smoking weed!” before taking a long toke.
