Hunter Palm was identified to federal investigators by a family member, according to court records. Court documents don’t state where Palm lives, but paperwork related to his bond show he is required to report to a probation office in Colorado Springs and is restricted from leaving the state of Colorado while on bond.

In a Feb. 6 interview with federal investigators, Palm admitted to entering the Capitol on Jan. 6 and gave his phone and a flash drive of videos from that day to agents, according to his arrest affidavit. He also gave investigators the clothes he wore that day, including a flag with the words “TRUMP” and “Keep America Great.”
