Were Antifa Supporters Among Those Who Overtook the Capitol Building?

Viral social media posts claimed that two prominent participants in the riot that overtook Capitol Hill Wednesday were actually leftists or Antifa members:


Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin advanced this conspiracy as well, discussing it during an interview on Fox News, saying: “Keep in mind, we don’t know who all were the instigators in this, of these horrible things that happened today. I think a lot of it is the Antifa folks. I’ve been sent pictures of the same characters who were captured on images today storming the Capitol, as had been in protests on the other side of politics earlier in the summer.” Palin also shared an image from the protest on her Twitter and encouraged the media to “LOOK IN TO WHO THESE PEOPLE ARE.”
