This Ex-Cop Says He Only Stormed the Capitol to Check Out the Art

Two days later, he resigned from his post at the Houston Police Department, after 18 years on the force. But federal investigators quickly uncovered his lies and arrested him for unlawful entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds on Wednesday. After letting agents look through his phone, however, they found photos and videos of Pham inside the Capitol Building in his recently deleted folder. Pham said that he had attended a pro-Trump rally with his wife and a friend at 7 a.m. and later decided to follow a crowd headed for the Capitol Building, according to court documents. That’s when he thought, why not take the opportunity to appreciate some of the fine art on display.
