Klete Keller, the two-time Olympic Gold Medalist who was reported to have been seen among the crowd inside the Capitol Rotunda during last Wednesday’s riot, has been charged for his role in the incident.
The charges against Keller include obstructing law enforcement engaged in official duties, unlawfully entering Capitol grounds, and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.
Claims that Keller attended the riot began after a video surfaced from Townhall’s Julio Rosas, in which a tall man in a Team U.S.A. Olympic jacket was seen getting pushed back by police with other protesters.

“Keller was working as an independent contractor for Colorado and Ohio-based real estate agency Hoff and Leigh. But on Tuesday, Hoff and Leigh released a statement saying that Keller had resigned,” Breitbart’s Warner Todd Huston reports.
