Yet another far right extremist has been arrested for his role in the January 6th insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.
Brandon Straka was charged with three counts by federal prosecutors: impeding law enforcement during a civil disorder, entering restricted grounds, and disorderly conduct with intent to disturb a hearing before Congress. He has been arrested.
Straka founded the "WalkAway Campaign" that sought to encourage Democrats to leave the Democratic Party and spoke at a "Stop the Steal" rally in D.C. the day before the riots.
The day after the riots, Straka criticized those on the right who were attempting to blame the riots on antifa.
The FBI said that "Witness-1" was a relative of Straka to pointed investigators to a video Straka had posted to Twitter. After the video was deleted from Twitter, the relative let the agent know there was a copy of the video posted to YouTube.
In the video, Straka was seen wearing the same clothes that he had worn the previous day while speaking at the rally.
