Several additional photos and videos were turned over to the FBI who placed Courtright outside and inside the Capitol on Jan.6, according to a federal affidavit filed in support of an arrest warrant on Saturday.
A video posted to Twitter shows Courtright in the Capitol with a crowd chanting “USA” according to court records.
A second video of the building, which was also posted on Twitter, shows it with a group of people chanting, “Who owns the house, our house,” the affidavit reads.
Courtright is also accused of confessing to someone he is in the Capitol in a private Instagram message to the government.
Courtright kept surveillance footage received from authorities near the Senate Chamber along with a “members only” sign which was later removed by police.
