One of the candidates of the Republican Party for governor of the state of Michigan has been arrested for his participation in the assault on the Capitol on January 6, 2021, the FBI reported in a statement.

The Detroit office of the FBI reported the arrest at his Allendale residence of Ryan Kelley, 40, one of the five Republicans fighting in the Michigan primaries to be the party’s candidate in the November elections.

Kelley is charged with misdemeanors for his participation in the events of January 6, 2021, when a mob of supporters of then President Donald Trump (2017 – 2021) stormed the United States Capitol in Washington to try to prevent the certification of the electoral victory of the current president, Joe Biden.

Five people died in the assault on the Capitol and about 140 agents were attacked.

Precisely this Thursday, the legislative committee that investigates what happened that day will reveal some of its findings in a hearing that will be broadcast during prime time and in which unpublished images of the event will be shown.

The committee’s goal will be to show that the assault on Capitol Hill was not an isolated event, but the result of “coordinated efforts with multiple steps” to prevent Democrat Joe Biden from assuming the Presidency.

According to the committee’s version, Trump was “at the center” of that conspiracy to invalidate the results of the 2020 elections.

The committee, which has interviewed more than a thousand witnesses and reviewed more than 140,000 documents, will show unpublished graphic material and offer the public a summary of the events that led to the assault.
