Klete Keller, a 38-year-old U.S. swimmer who won two Olympic gold medals, is being accused of participating in last week’s siege on the U.S. Capitol.
He is under suspicion because former teammates and coaches have ratted him out to the New York Times and other fake news outlets. Because of their big mouths, he may be facing federal charges in the near future.
Additionally, there is video from inside the Capitol showing an individual believed to be Keller wearing an Olympic team jacket while participating in the riot. A Colorado real estate firm, Hoff & Leigh, has announced that Keller has resigned in his position with the company.
“Hoff & Leigh supports the right of free speech and lawful protest but we cannot condone actions that violate the rule of law,” the company said in a brief statement.
