Ryan Kelley was one of the few Republican candidates for Michigan governor. He was arrested by the FBI for participating in the January 6 protest.
He made a gesture? If that’s enough to arrest him, what about the FBI informants? https://t.co/RN9ciAwEIM pic.twitter.com/jxUKQSsUCn

- The FBI received several tips regarding Kelley participating in the January 6 “Stop the Steal” rally.
- Kelley was arrested Thursday and taken into FBI custody.
- The FBI searched Kelley’s home but found no evidence that he entered the Capitol.
The most dangerous thing happening in America today is the full weaponization of the administrative state against the enemies of the Democratic Party. Nothing else comes close.
Break the FBI into a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds. https://t.co/8HW0dQU7Pi

Kelly is accused of waving at the Capitol crowd. Kelly is charged with disorderly behavior, committing depredation of federal property, entering a restricted space unlawfully, and engaging in physical violence within a restricted zone.
It is not clear why the arrest was made at such a suspicious time. Five other Republican candidates were disqualified recently from running after signatures they submitted proved fraudulent. This included front-runner James Craig who was considered a serious threat to Gretchen Whitmer, the current commie governor.
Notable, too, is tonight’s primetime J6 clown-fest by the Democrats.
Ryan Kelley is among five Republican candidates who are still in the race.
