On Monday, The Daily Beast reported that Bruno Joseph Cua, a Georgia teenager, has become the youngest person to be criminally charged in the Capitol invasion, with charges including civil disorder, entering a restricted building, and assault of a police officer.
"In a criminal complaint, prosecutors allege that after encouraging his social media followers for almost two weeks to support former President Donald Trump and protest against the election, the Georgia teenager stormed the Capitol," reported Asawin Suebsaeng. "The Milton, Georgia, resident is seen in several photos and videos at the Capitol wearing a MAGA hat and a sweatshirt adorned with an eagle — including a New Yorker video showing a slew of rioters fighting their way onto the Senate floor."
Cua is also accused of shoving a Capitol Police officer to force his way into the Senate chambers.
"In the New Yorker video, Cua is seen inside the Senate chamber, wandering around and recording rioters pilfering desks and sitting in chairs," said the report. "At one point, after one rioter gets yelled at for trying to sit on former Vice President Mike Pence's seat, the complaint states Cua is heard saying, 'They can steal an election, but we can't sit in their chairs?'"
Dozens of people across the country now face charges for their role in the riot, which left five people dead and triggered a second impeachment of former President Donald Trump.
