‘Storming the Capitol. Pray for us all. Arresting Patriots, this is OUR HOUSE,’ Bennett had allegedly written in a Facebook post provided to the FBI by a tipster.

Bennett also made ‘numerous posts encouraging people to gather and attend events in Washington, D.C.’ and ‘posted that he would be present’ as well as one that said ‘Patriots will go to WAR’ if the election was ‘stolen’ for Biden, according to the FBI.

He had allegedly posted a video of him and Williams entering the Capitol and where he admitted the ‘CAPITOL WAS STORMED.’ 

‘WE are safe and nursing one wounded warrior with us who took not one but two flashbangs to the leg and then face,’ he allegedly said in the post. 

‘TODAY WAS A REVOLUTIONARY MESSAGE. WE WON’T GO AWAY. WE WILL FIND VICTORY.’

Williams, who calls herself a lifestyle coach, has filled her social media accounts with posts about essential oils and healthy living.

DailyMail.com has reached out to Williams for more information and additional comment. 

Williams started her own home-based business at the when she was 18 years old after earning a ‘degree from The School of Hard Knocks – if there even is such an accreditation,’ according to her website.

She had attended Belhaven University as a vocal performance major for two years before deciding to drop out and pursue singing on her own and released her first album Peace Like a River in 2019.

In a blog post on January 18, she wrote about visiting her family in Florida and vacationing in North Carolina over the holidays but made no reference to the violent protest.

‘After being away from home for 24 days over the Christmas and New Years holidays, I arrived home absolutely wiped. Not just wiped from travel, but wiped emotionally and physically and even spiritually,’ she wrote just days after allegedly storming the Capitol.

She added that their travels made their relationship grow closer as the couple spent time together.

‘It was such blessing to have my boyfriend join me for Christmas this year. … All in all I am so thankful that we shared the experience together, and our relationship has drawn closer because of it all,’ she wrote.

According to her website: ‘Elizabeth is often heard saying, ‘The world is my playground!’ And she truly believes it. There isn’t a place on earth she wouldn’t go if given the opportunity and the inner knowing that the doors were open wide.’ 

Williams posted her ‘I Voted’ sticker to Instagram during the 2018 midterm elections, in which she indicated she might want to run for office.

‘Feeling #blessed that in America we get to #vote for the people we want directing our country forward. Who knows, maybe one day I’ll run for office. But until then, let’s #MakeAmericaGreat and #KeepAmericaGreat!!’  she wrote.

A link to Bennet’s website from his Instagram account appears to longer be active but one post indicates he helped launch the website BattleBorn.live.

‘We launched a Patriot site to do our part to awaken red blooded freedom fighters, bring education and activation to fight tyranny harder together,’ he wrote on Instagram. 

The Battle Born website has posted a number of QAnon conspiracy theories including that Trump would be inaugurated on March 4. 

The criminal complaint noted that an FBI tipster, who knew Bennett from childhood, has Parler account under the name @battlebornLIVE.

The tipster told the FBI that Bennett frequently posts about QAnon conspiracy theories on his Facebook page and his Parler account.

The FBI noted that it has cooperating informants willing to testify against the couple.

Williams and Bennett first appeared in a Washington D.C. court via Zoom on March 24, prosecutors said.
