Former Trump appointee arrested as part of Capitol riot probe

The never-ending war against the Trump administration continues as the FBI has arrested Federico Klein, a former President Trump appointee for the State Department, as part of the January 6 U.S. Capitol building riot.

Smantha Shero, spokesperson for the FBI Washington Field Office, confirmed the arrest and referred questions to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for D.C. Klein’s arrest is the first time a Trump political appointee has faced charges for the events at the U.S. Capitol.

The former president was blamed by many for the riots, including an unprecedented second impeachment vote by the House. The Senate later acquitted Trump in a 57-43 vote. Washington Democrats continue to attempt to pin the blame on Trump and his administration for the event.

More than 300 Americans have been charged due to actions at the U.S. Capitol on January 6. Charges have ranged from entering a restricted area, to obstruction of Congress, and related misdemeanor offenses.

No information has been released regarding Klein’s particular actions that day, though sources have confirmed he was in D.C. during the riot. According to Politico,

Klein worked for a time in the State Department’s Office of Brazilian and Southern Cone Affairs before being transferred to the office that handles Freedom of Information Act requests, according to a former colleague who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

On Trump’s 2016 campaign, Klein — also known as Freddie — worked as a “tech analyst,” according to Federal Election Commission records. He earned $15,000 there, according to a financial disclosure he filed when he joined the State Department. He was paid an additional $5,000 by the campaign in 2017, the FEC records show.

Democrats are likely to use the arrest to further connect Trump and his supporters to the riot on the U.S. Capitol. However, Klein was a former State Department aide, not a current employee of the Trump administration.

Further, it is not clear Trump even knew Klein or was aware of his presence at the events of January 6. While Democrats continue to bring up additional connections to the riot, most Americans want to forget about it.

  1. The media should quit trying to blame Trump for everything. The hatred toward him by the liberals and the liberal media is disgusting. Biden is a terrible pResident. Trump was an excellent President for the people.

    1. I find it kind of funny that they haven’t come out with more information on the others who were arrested. Could it be that many turned out to be ANTIFA or BLM members or registered Democratic voters? Just watch, this one person will be talked about non-stop by the fake news media.

      1. Well they did identify 1 ANTIFA member, but not what they did with him! I would GUESS they just let him go since there has not been anymore detailed after his original arrest! Expect that HARRIS just paid his FINE and THEY LET HIM GO!

        1. FBI is now a political DEMOCRATIC tool of the corrupt LEFT. I do not know why they went down hill so fast.
          They are corrupt at the top levels. One FBI person said that they had 12 people who identified as Antifa or BLM–the director just said they had none that were identified–Now which is it?? The man who was with CNN clearly was an ANTIFA/BLM guy. He was there stirring up the people at the capitol building. Even though he participated in the riot he was released by the F BI–I guess the FBI does not want to be involved with arresting one of the left’s tools. It is time for the innocent people to be released–FBI called them armed insurrectionists–what bad joke-no one had a gun except for the cowardly capitol cop who shot the unarmed woman. Someone needs to clean HOUSE from top to bottom.

          1. Suggest we all take a close look at J. Edgar Hoover. He was very far from angelic.
            George

      2. There are videos taken by Trump supporters showing antifa people being brought in by buses and unloaded escorted by police or at lease fake police. These are the ones who did the destruction and rioting more than likely with demonrat support.

        1. I saw the video’s of antifa members dressed as Trump supporters brought there on busses whit a police escort , someone needs to arrest Wray from the FBI , he is in on this to !

      3. Oh! But it was 10’s of thousands who stormed the capital building.
        And the tooth fairy was there too, right along side of Dr. Zuess, Micky Mouse, and Popeye!
        Weren’t ant Demoncraps there!Oh, wait Antifa and blm was there.
        And big bad brave swalwell was hiding for his life. Yah right!! These doofs knew in advance what was going to go down, because they set it up.

      4. The answer to your question is NO. More than 300 have been arrested and the info will be out soon enough. He will be talked about because he was State Dept employee with top security clearance who was right in the middle of the MOB of Trump rioters.

    2. The Police have already discovered that part of those arrested were BLM/ANTIFA/DEMS/LIBS and those that did not vote for anyone…….Am quite sure that Pelosi had a hand in making riot happen……..That is her style…….

    3. I AGREE WITH YOU 100%.KNOCK IT OFF DEMORATS STOP KEEP BLAMMING TRUMP .HE ISNT IN THE WHITEHOUSE HE ISNT THE PRESIDENT SO KNOCK OFF BLAMMING TRUMP. HE IS THE BEST PRESIDENT WE HAVE IN OUR COUNTRY FOR 50 YEARS.BIDEN NEEDS TO GO. HE IS UNFIT AND SO DOES HARRIS SHE DOESNT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT BEING PRESIDENT. SHE HAS NO EXPERIENCE BEING IN THE WHITE HOUSE SHE AND PELOSI NEED TO BE INVESTAGATED.BIDEN JUST THANKED NANCYAND SAYING WHAT EVER YOU WANT LET ME KNOW. HARRIS IS ALWAYS BEHIND BIDEN LIKE SHE IS BABYSITTING FOR HIM.SHE ISNT SUPPOSE TO TALK TO FOREIGN LEADERS THATS NOT HER JOB.

    4. Got that right and I have a feeling it won’t be long until the “S**t hits the fan” so to speak and there will be some SERIOUS REPERCUSSIONS for the Democraps,Libtards and some Republicans.

    5. Just more liberal BS President Trump had a lot of people working on his campaign and I’m sure you didn’t know everyone by their name well at least she knows where the Pentagon is at and who is Secretary of Defense

  2. I canNOT think of a worse president than the election stealer candidate. It was bad enough having his boss from January 20, 2009 to January 19, 2017 who, at that time, I believed was our worst, but the new one has topped that !

    1. I agree and Wholeheartedly believe that they both deserve life in Prison or better yet an execution for Treasonous acts while in office.

  3. When will Pelosi be arrested? Days before Trump’s speech, he offered to send in 10,000 National Guard for protection. Pelosi didn’t want it. I think she deliberately did this to set Trump up. Funny how that works isn’t it?

  4. Any Republican no matter how distant from president Trump will be arrested. But a democrat can lie to congress cheat and steal and they will be fine.

    1. Democrats can lie to Congress and there will be no consequences. Why? Simple: Corruption won’t prosecute corruption and that goes for crooked judges, also.

    2. I won’t forget it because the dems with help from tech and msm and the alphabet agencies stoled the election.

  5. I think your question is flawed and cannot be answered correctly by anyone. It needs to be clarified. “Which president did more for our country?” Are you asking “more good” or “more evil?” More ‘good’ would be a hands down, Trump answer. More ‘evil’ would be a hands down obama response.

    1. thank you Ray for your idea … but could you provide some examples?? Thank you very much for what enlightment I am missing.

  6. Biden knowith nothing.He is a disgrace to all Americans and
    countries abroad. He must be impeached and soon rather then
    later. Makes me puke to see what America has become in such
    a short time.OUT WITH BIDEN

    1. One scary thought! If Trainwreck Biden gets axed, Heels up Harris takes his seat, and guess who becomes VP?

  7. I’m sure this is all a lie just like most of what is being said by members of Biden admin Time to impeach Biden over his involvement with China as far as his son’s activities. Biden needs to go. The problem is we’dthen have Harris, who is just as bad. Time to get her out as well!

  8. In 1916 the Irish Patriots stormed the GPO and fought the British. The British captured them and shot most of the leaders.
    in 2021 the American Patriots were in the parking lot of the Capital to peacefully protest against the democrats. The democrats arrested the Patriots and put them in jail.

  9. These people who stole the election with help from other branches of government have worn out their welcome
    Along with the alphabet organizations who have proven how corrupt they are will begin to face real Americans . Never give in dont follow any of their illegal rules. Oppose dont be disposed of. The 2nd amendment is not for hunting. Founding fathers knew what could happen to an unarmed people.The Marxists can’t be allow to continue like this..

  10. They arrest the guy who makes $15,000 a year and they wanna get him to be able to say that he knew Trump
    Let’s start how about having Biden stopping people coming in from the southern border with COVID-19 and being bussed into our communities and we’re worried about someone who might be affiliated with something that might’ve happened by something that may have occurred

  11. Why aren’t people being held accountable for all the burning of cities the destruction of all the businesses and yes the murder of innocent American citizens by the so-called Democratic brown shirts…. just because they’re Democrats doesn’t mean you can get away with these crimes… we even have a vice president that supported and yes raise money to bail people out so they could go back and do it again we’re not talking one day here we’re talking months… shouldn’t kamaili Harris be impeached for her crimes ????

  12. the only problem is that when he is gone Harris will be president and Pelosi will be VP. God only knows what those 2 will do

    1. …and piglosi will finally admit that Harris is NOT eligible to
      be V.P. and then claim the Presidency for herself

      1. Just what piglois has been trying to get for years! Doesn’t matter who’s in office if the Dems remain in charge! We need to realize that, what we should have been doing all along, PRAY FOR GODS FORGIVENESS! MAYBE WE WILL BE GIVEN THE BLESSINGS OF FORGIVENESS AND START TURNING BACK TO HAVING GOD BACK IN AMERICA INSTEAD OF OUT OF AMERICA!!!!

    2. Barbara, Piglosi is running the WH right now. Joe has dementia & it gets worse on a regular basis & Heels up Harris will be her puppet. Until Americans wake up & do whatever it takes to stop the left, they will keep doing whatever they want to do!!!

  13. I find it amazing how these people are always going after Trump and his people meanwhile the corrupt Democrats get to sit back and laugh,its crazy how the whole Hunter Biden scandal just disappeared along with the cheating that took place at the election,the people of this country know how this man was put in office and it’s something we’ll never forget

  14. I am so sick of the Democrats they allow antifa burning down businesses, looting, destroying people lively hood, homes, and murder and there is not a damn thing done. When is Americans going wake up and realize this is not Nazi German and we have rights. The Democrats are trying to take away our first and second amendments. Plus Biden is banning Dr. Suede’s books. I am sick of the Democrats wasting taxes dollars and destroying jobs.

  15. I watched the FBI agent testify to the Senate, that there were no Antifa or B.L.M. members present at the Capital insurrection on January 6th, he knows that was a lie, as the videos show John Sullivan a known terrorist, who was paid by both CNN, and NBC $ 70,000.00 dollars to agitate rioters, while video recording and doing damage as he did lead the mob into the Capital ! There are videos of members of Antifa changing into Trump T shirts, hats and other items carrying Trump flags, then changing back into their Antifa clothing after leaving the Capital building ! This was a coordinated attack planned well in advance, as two pipe bombs were placed outside both Political Headquarters on the night of January 5th, and on January 6th John Sullivan and the other terrorists waited for the peaceful Trump supporters to arrive, before attacking the Capital Police, and injuring some, then entering the building ! I feel that those armed terrorists were told what to do by Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats, who wanted President trump to look very bad that day ! President Trump had offered to have 10,000 National Guard members ready, but Nancy Pelosi, and the Mayor of Washington D.C. said NO ! ( WHY DID THEY SAY NO ??)

  16. In the past 10 years –I have not heard or read anything good about the democratic party. All I have read and hear is the party wanted to make our country commie-like China–from the democratic party

  17. When the Director of the FBI sits in front of congress and states that they know of NO ANTIFA or OTHER GROUPS involved when there are videos and arrests of ANTIFA members somethng is wrong with the system.

  18. Wow, I didn’t hear about Nancy Pelosi’s breautician dead. That is kind of suspicious. Doesn’t everybody think? It should have been Nancy Pelosi found dead.

  19. Soon they will be saying a Trump official cut the ears off of the Easter Bunny. They already did a number on Dr. Seuess. I learned to read from See #ick And Jane. My wife and I helped my three son’s to read with Dr. Seuess. They turned out to be smarter then most of the people in the lower chamber. Soon they will put Santa in Guantanamo Bay because he’s white.

  20. Peolsi is the one who needs to be arrested for not supplying the aid needed to protect the capital she knew full well what would happen and did nothing to help.. I think she set all this fiasco into action!!!!! She needs to be removed from office enough of her crap!!

  21. These whackos in the swamp and the left all have a mental problem. They won’t arrest their buddies or they will charge no bail and release them, but they would arrest someone on the right or a Trump supporter if all they did was to cook him a hamburger at a fast food place. Pelosi is the culprit of Jan 6. Her tail should be in jail!

  22. I trust the FIB as much as I do Nutty Nancy and literally any other election stealing domestic Democrat terrorist. Remember when Obama weaponized the IRS against the American people with Louis Learner? Ronald Reagans nine most feared words have never been more true than they are today.

  23. ALL and I MEAN ALL who had anything to do with the cover up of the rioters who are democrats need to be Imprisoned for fifty years be it any FBI or senators or even the speaker of the house Pelosi or whoever had a hand in letting these terrorist gangs into the capitol building, get all those videos and start arresting them all THE DEMOCRATS FIXED THE ELECTIONS WE ALL KNOW IT NOW START THE ARRESTS.

  24. Well, Old Joe and the Ho’s administration is in it’s third month. Because of stupidly attacking each other, democrats in the House and Senate have made them invalid. So Old Joe signed over a half a hundred EOs that he never read, trying to erase Trump. They even came up with a failed impeachment of a private citizen. Almost all the campaign promises Old Joe made have fallen flat on their faces. So he ordered a new war because that is where democrat power shines. As for the Ho, she is no more relevant in any supportive areas than the worn out girdle she wears. Mostly because she got to the top on her back but at 56 years old, even that’s quickly wearing thin.

  25. BIDEN, HARRIS, NANCY AND CHUCK NEEDS TO BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE. THEY ARE RUINING THE UNITED STATES. IF YOU WANNA LIVE LIKE CHINA THEN GO LIVE THERE AND LEAVE US ALONE . THE BIDEN FAMILY HAS SUCH GOOD RELATIONS WITH CHINE LEAVE THE UNITED STATS NOW. YOU ALL CAN TAKE AIR FORCE ONE ON A ONE WAY TRIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  26. Time to press charges against all in Congress who called for violence it was not only Trump, they will continue to feed this as gospel even their investigator has stated it was all Trump followers in the riot. How about the BLM and Antifa People there. It will come out a big cover up of Congressional People who called for violence they will try to bend the truth to their way of expressing the continued lies. Just like the election a cover up to elect Biden who seldom ran .All of the mail-in votes should have been verified , How many were from people who then voted in their home states? Lots of questions no real answers.

  27. When democrats/demon rats are blaming DJT it takes the public eyes off them, they do not appreciate a President that was true to his word, even for all they put him through and the tax payers money they wasted. They even found fault with teh stage at teh aCAP speech DJT gave. The day of judgement is coming and their will be two choices the ones that repented and followed d God get allowed into Heaven for eternity and for those that followed evil and corruption will be with their leader satan in hell the lake of fire for eternity. Having billions of dollars, and power make the democrats think they need more and more until they can control us, our comings and goings, and it became stronger when COVID 19 hit our nation. Now they will control us by the vaccine-those that have it will be able to shop, attend movies, gather in larger groups, those that haven’t and won’t take it will be home bound; then will come the digital money don’t take it you can’t buy things, probably won’t be able to get it if you don’t have the vaccine for COVID 19 and a short time later it will be take the mark of the beast 666 and follow them or suffer the punishment. Do Not fear for those that know God no longer have to be around the corruption we see getting worse each day. Now Biden wants the police to stop women drivers and give them tickets no matter what and if they don’t make their quota they are punished. STUPID To bad the demon rats don’t know JUSTICE Law and ORDER………they sure are cooking themselves more and more and their outcome isn’t going to be a pleasant one. While those that take their stand for Christ and law, order and are obedient will be happy throughout eternity…:) Demon rats have hardened their hearts for power and money and control……….well One world Government, Currency and Leader is coming soon. Hope your prepare for it. enjoy the choice you made for voting teh democrat’s into office

  28. Dems lose, AGAIN! Only way u can win is by cheating and paying off judges! Your enormous defeat will be in 2022 and beyond when we decimate the swamp forever and get America out of ur dirty hands. Death to all of you heathens!!!!!
