Newly released footage from the January 6 Capitol riot shows a man firing a gun into the air after climbing scaffolding.

The man, John Emanuel Banuelos, had previously claimed involvement in the riot.

“You can look me up, OK?” Banuelos said. “I’m the one in the video with the gun right here.”

The footage was released by Derrick Evans, a former lawmaker running for Congress, who used it to raise campaign funds.

“I chose today to announce my bid for the House of Representatives because it is an important anniversary in US history,” Evans said.

“While my name will indelibly be part of it, we should also use (it) as a chance to remind ourselves about why democracy is so important and how easily it can be threatened,” he added.

Notably, Banuelos has not been charged for his actions on January 6. Evans suggested that Banuelos could be a federal agent.

“I think it’d be very disingenuous for myself or anyone for that matter to be like, ‘He’s for sure a federal agent,’ that would be wrong to say that,” Evans said. “But I think it’s equally wrong to say he’s definitely not. I think it’s a fair question.”

This development coincides with legal battles over claims of incitement against former President Donald Trump in relation to the riot.
