FBI Raids Home & Arrests GOP Governor Candidate Ahead Of January 6th Hearings

Federal law enforcement seems to be beginning to take action as the January 6th Committee prepares for hearings. On Thursday morning, they raided the home of a Michigan Republican, who was present at the Capitol on January 6th, and arrested him.

According to Bridge MI, Michigan gubernatorial candidate Ryan Kelley was arrested during an FBI raid of his home Thursday morning. Kelley was known in his state for conservative activism over the past few years, including fighting to keep a Confederate monument (yes, in Michigan), and protesting against COVID-19 health and safety policies.
That’s not all, though – the Democratic Party of Michigan shared footage last summer showing what seems to be Kelley participating in the January 6th storming of the Capitol, and shouting encouragement to fellow participants, as well as declaring, “This is war!”

He is also documented telling supporters to unplug voting machines if they “see something [they] don’t like happening” at the polls.

According to the Detroit News, an FBI spokesperson confirmed the arrest, and criminal charges were later filed in Federal court:

…knowingly entering or remaining in a restricted building; disorderly and disruptive conduct; knowingly engaging in any act of physical violence against person or property in a restricted building or grounds; willfully injuring or committing depredation against property of the U.S.

Federal law enforcement has been gradually closing in on some of the more prominent alleged participants or planners of the January 6th attacks, charging members of militia groups like the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers with seditious conspiracy, and issuing a subpoena to Peter Navarro, one of Donald Trump’s closest advisors.
