‘My heart breaks,’ Mendoza said.
‘They had to see the big guns and I just think, I wasn’t there to console them.’
Mendoza said her ex-husband called her at around 6am on the day of the raid and told her he needed to drop off the children.
‘I knew that something bad had to happen for him to just abruptly call me,’ she said.
‘I support him in doing what he believes in. I don’t agree with everything … I just don’t want my kids to be in the crossfire.’
The Times is reporting that the two men were being investigated because of their associations on a ‘social media app.’
On his Instagram account, Massaquoi denied taking part in violence during the MAGA riot at the Capitol.
‘I did nothing wrong on the 6th…did nothing violent,’ he said.
