On Thursday, POLITICO reported that a former staffer in the Trump administration has been arrested in connection with the invasion of the U.S. Capitol on January 6th.
"The FBI on Thursday arrested Federico Klein, a former State Department aide, on charges related to the storming of the Capitol on Jan. 6, marking the first known instance of an appointee of President Donald Trump facing criminal prosecution in connection with the attempt to block Congress from certifying President Joe Biden's victory," reported Josh Gerstein. "Klein, 42, was taken into custody in Virginia, said Samantha Shero, a spokeswoman for the FBI's Washington Field Office. Details on the charges against him were not immediately available."
"Klein worked on Trump's 2016 campaign and was then hired at the State Department," said the report. "As of last summer, he was listed in a federal directory as serving as a special assistant in the Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs and was designated as a 'Schedule C' political appointee."
Trump himself was impeached for incitement to insurrection in connection with the riot, and escaped conviction even as seven Republican senators voted to hold him guilty.
