Navistar, a direct marketing company in Maryland, announced that an employee had been terminated after he was photographed wearing his company ID badge inside the breached Capitol building.
A Texas attorney named Paul Davis is no longer employed at his company, Goosehead Insurance, after social media posts appeared to show him talking about his participation in Wednesday’s events. In one video, Davis says, “we’re all trying to get into the Capitol to stop this.”
In further posts on Facebook’s Stories feature, Davis said he was “peacefully demonstrating” the whole time, and was not trying to actively break into the Capitol. “I said ‘trying to get into the Capitol,’ meaning to voice a protest. Not in any violent way,” he wrote.
CNN reached out to Goosehead for further comment and was directed to a voicemail message that stated, “The Goosehead employee involved at the Capitol is no longer employed.”
It isn’t clear whether Davis left the company or was terminated. CNN reached out to Davis for comment but hasn’t gotten a response.
“As a result of that investigation, Dr. Saccone has submitted and we have accepted his letter of resignation, effective immediately. He will no longer be associated with Saint Vincent College in any capacity,” Hustava said in a statement provided to CNN.
CNN has reached out to Saccone for further comment.
Lindsey Williams, a Pennsylvania state Senator, shared a video that appeared to have been deleted from Saccone’s Facebook page. In it, Saccone says, “They broke down the gates, they’re macing them up there. We’re trying to run out all of the evil people in there and all of the RINOs that have betrayed our President. We’re going to run them out of their offices.”
Americans in positions of power are also being disciplined for their support of the violence, even if they weren’t at the Capitol. The Texas Republican Party removed Walter West, its Sergeant-At-Arms, from his position after West made comments on Facebook supporting the Capitol siege.
In a statement, West said his Facebook posts were “misinterpreted” and he would never “advocate for violence on ‘The People’s House.'”
West’s name and photograph do not appear on the Texas GOP’s list of leadership.
