“Just because you’ve left the DC region you can still expect a knock on the door if we find out you were part of the criminal activity at the Capitol,” said Steven D’Antuono, assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Washington field office.
“The FBI is not sparing any resources in this investigation,” he said.
It was not immediately clear whether Barnett has an attorney.
