'I am not a terrorist': Retired Navy SEAL speaks after Capitol siege The Navy veteran said he wanted lawmakers to be left "shaking in their shoes.".
A retired U.S. Navy SEAL is facing questions from the FBI after boasting in a Facebook video about "breaching the Capitol" last Wednesday after traveling to Washington to join a rally for President Donald Trump, an assault he said in the video that he hoped would ignite a "positive revolution.".
The video shows Adam Newbold, 45, from Lisbon, Ohio, who the Navy confirmed is a retired reserve SEAL special warfare operator, in a car on his return home from Washington, telling his Facebook followers that he was "proud" of the assault on the U.S. Capitol building earlier that day.
And, um, to get in you had to destroy doors and windows to get in," Newbold says in the video.
The video has been deleted from Facebook, but a copy of it was obtained by ABC News.
Retired Marine Mick Mulroy and retired Navy SEAL Eric Oehlerich, both ABC News contributors, said in a joint statement that "as members of the military, we fought to defend our constitutionally guaranteed right to free speech.
But he also admits that in the video made after the incursion, he presented a much different tone than the one he has since adopted. »
