FBI documents obtained by NBC confirm Campanella was one of the people who entered the Capitol at the time of the attack. Phone logs show Campanella was in various locations throughout the building, including Nancy Pelosi's suite. NBC also reviewed additional video that shows a man matching Campanella's description entering the room where Pelosi's laptop was stolen. While the Bravo star wasn't part of the group that attacked the capitol, Siggy had previously posted several photos of the day in question online and said Tyler was there, according to the outlet.

"I love patriots so much. Stay safe Tyler. We love you." Flicker who appeared on Season 7 and 8 of the reality tv captioned her Instagram post alongside the hashtag, “#StopTheSteal.”
