Frederico Klein arrested in Capitol riot

Capitol riot investigators just nabbed one of the ex-president’s men.

Federico Klein, a midlevel State Department aide under former President Donald Trump, was arrested in Virginia Thursday in connection with the siege, the FBI told Politico.

Klein, identified on video as struggling with officers and assaulting them with a stolen riot shield, was charged with unlawful entry, violent and disorderly conduct, obstructing Congress and law enforcement, and assaulting an officer with a dangerous weapon, according to The New York Times.

He’s the first known member of the Trump administration to face criminal prosecution in the attack, ABC News reported. Hundreds of other pro-Trump extremists, including elected officials and those with military and law enforcement ties, also have been charged.
