According to court documents, Westover also had his will and birth certificate in the car, as well as “Stop the Steal paperwork that had a list of Senators and Representatives, both U.S. and West Virginia State Senators and Representatives, with contact info.”

In a police interview, Westover said “he was concerned about the honesty and integrity of the election.” But, he added that while he still believes there was “election fraud,” it is now a “moot point.” He said he was engaged in “righteousness, justice, and truth,” the court documents say. Westover told police he got the gun to protect him and his fiancee.
