Norms Restored: FBI Now Literally Arresting Republican Candidates

Posted on | June 9, 2022 | Comments Off on Norms Restored: FBI Now Literally Arresting Republican Candidates

At a time when leftists are attempting to assassinate Supreme Court justices — never mind gas at $5 a gallon and the risk of Ukraine turning into World War III — our federal government is arresting Republicans who made the mistake of thinking America is still a free country:

A Republican candidate for Michigan governor has been charged with misdemeanors for his role in the 2021 post-election riot at the U.S. Capitol, further complicating an already messy GOP primary. . . .
Ryan Kelley, 40, was arrested in western Michigan and appeared at a brief hearing in federal court in Grand Rapids, where he was released from custody without posting bail. The government did not ask that Kelley be detained.
His arrest came hours before the House committee investigating the insurrection holds a widely anticipated public hearing, showing never-seen video, audio and an array of evidence highlighting the deadly violence that erupted on Jan. 6, 2021.
Kelley walked away from the courthouse, joined by his wife and other family, saying only that he would comment later. His campaign posted on Facebook two words: “political prisoner,” and the chairman of the state GOP accused Democrats of “weaponizing our justice system” against poltical opponents.

Kelley is charged with a misdemeanor. The affidavit for his arrest stipulates that Kelley never entered the Capitol. Just being in attendance at the protest is evidently a crime now, and how soon before they start rounding up everybody who expresses doubt about the administrative capacity of President Eight-One Million Votes? You could go to federal prison for having a Trump bumper sticker, I guess.
