Musk Says Jan. 6 Prosecutions ‘Have Gone Too Far’ After Conservative Influencer Arrest

After a conservative influencer was detained by the FBI on Friday for allegedly entering the Capitol building during the riot

Elon Musk said the “Jan. 6 prosecutions have gone too far” in his latest hard-right statement.

Musk responded on X, formerly Twitter, to far-right media personality Ian Miles Cheong defending conservative influencer Isabella Maria DeLuca after her FBI arrest on Friday.

On Jan. 6, 2021, after the mob advanced to the Capitol building and Congress evacuated

DeLuca, a former intern for Reps. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., and Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., tweeted that she would “fight back”.

In 2021, DeLuca and her mother told investigators that she attended the “Stop the Steal” event on Jan. 6 but did not enter the Capitol, according to an affidavit filed Monday.

Cheong claimed that DeLuca was “entirely peaceful” at the rally and that “extensive video footage proves she committed no acts of violence”

but FBI videos and photos show that she entered the Capitol building and helped others remove a table used to “assault law enforcement officers guarding the Lower West Terrace Tunnel.”

DeLuca was arrested by FBI agents on Friday for theft of federal property, accessing a restricted building

Capitol disorderly conduct, and parading or demonstrating. By Tuesday, she had not been arraigned or entered a plea.
