Facebook messages unearthed by investigators show that a recently indicted Capitol rioter described the violence that left five people dead as "fun."
As flagged by NBC 4 investigative reporter Scott MacFarlane, court filings revealed this week that 31-year-old Florida resident Corinne Montoni gleefully boasted to friends about taking part in the MAGA riots in a January 7th chat with a friend.
"Hahah yeah it was so fun," she wrote. "But they did pepperspray us."
According to local news station WTSP, Montoni was arrested at her home in Lakeland, Florida and charged with several criminal offenses, including obstruction of an official proceeding; disorderly and disruptive conduct in restricted building or grounds; and parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol building.
Additionally, reports local news station WFLA, Montoni posted messages on social media defending the riots as they were happening.
"We tried going to the courts," Montoni wrote on Instagram and Facebook on the day of the riots, referring to the Trump campaign's failed legal efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election. "We tried the nice and legal way but when corruption runs so deep for so long, that doesn't work."
