WASHINGTON — A man captured in several videos and photographs at Wednesday’s siege of the U.S. Capitol has been identified in local news reports as 41-year-old Doug Jensen.
Jensen, a Des Moines, Iowa, native, was seen wearing a QAnon T-shirt depicting an eagle and the conspiracy theory motto, “Where we go one, we go all.”
In a video posted by Igor Bobic, Jensen is one of the first in the mob to push past a Capitol police officer and into the building, Fox reported.
The Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police posted a photo of Jensen as they solicited information regarding people involved in the invasion.

Jensen has an active presence on social media and his Twitter and Facebook pages show multiple pictures of himself from the day.
“You like my shirt?” he wrote, referring to the QAnon T-shirt; others replied that the FBI might “like it and come check it out personally.”
