The FBI has arrested Federico Klein on Thursday for his alleged participation in the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.
The 42-year-old was one of former President Donald Trump’s appointees to the U.S. Department of State. According to ABC News, federal agents picked him up in Virginia.
An affidavit filed in federal court in Washington says video from police body cameras shows Klein jamming a riot shield into doors as Capitol Police were trying to secure them.
The formal complaint alleges video shows him encouraging others to clash with the police.
The FBI continues to search for people who actively participated in the insurrection and are working with the general public to identify them.
