Lawyers for a man photographed sitting at a desk in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office during the January 6 riot at the US Capitol are arguing that he called her a "biatch," not a "b*tch," in calling for his release.

(CNN)Lawyers for a man photographed sitting at a desk in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office during the January 6 riot at the US Capitol are arguing that he called her a "biatch," not a "b*tch," in calling for his release.

"This written note, however, says, 'Hey Nancy Bigo was here biatd. ' It does not say 'you' or 'b*tch,' " the lawyers for Capitol riot defendant Richard Barnett, known as Bigo, wrote in a court filing filed Friday.

"The titles of those offenses don't even properly capture the scope of what Mr. Barnett is accused of doing here," Chief Judge Beryl Howell of the DC District Court said in an hourlong hearing for Barnett in January.

Barnett, of Arkansas, was photographed sitting at a desk in Pelosi's office during the riot, authorities say.
