In a statement Navistar Direct Marketing said they were ‘made aware that a man wearing a Navistar company badge was seen inside the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 during the security breach’.
They added: ‘After review of the photographic evidence the employee in question has been terminated for cause.’
The unidentified employee was pictured inside the Capitol building Wednesday. The company later said they are ‘cooperating with the authorities’.
‘While we support all employee’s right to peaceful, lawful exercise of free speech, any employee demonstrating dangerous conduct that endangers the health and safety of others will no longer have an employment opportunity with Navistar Direct Marketing,’ the company added.

Davis said he has been tear-gassed, telling his followers: ‘That was not fun.
‘All we want is an actual audit of ballots and the Dominion machines.
‘Our politicians could end all of the unrest in two days with a legitimate audit, but they won’t allow it. Why?’

Dozens of those involved in the violent siege, labelled as ‘great patriots’ by the president are yet to be identified and the FBI is now asking for the helping in finding them, tweeting they are ‘accepting tips & digital media depicting rioting & violence in the U.S. Capitol Building & surrounding area on January 6, 2021.’
‘If you have witnessed unlawful violent actions, we urge you to submit any information, photos, or videos that could be relevant,’ they added.

Most of those already arrested have been accused of curfew violations.
Others face charges of carrying a pistol without a license. The former Deputy Director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe, has said the bureau must make ‘identifying, arresting, and prosecuting every single person that you possibly can that entered that Capitol building yesterday’ a top priority.
But some of those who took part have already been identified online as members of far right groups, white nationalists, Neo-Nazis and supporters of conspiracy theory QAnon.
They are from states all over the country including Arizona, Michigan, Georgia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Oregon.
One of those named is Richard ‘Bigo’ Barnett, the 60-year-old who brazenly put his feet on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s desk in her office.
