The FBI made another highly political arrest.
Its timing struck everyone as suspicious.
And the FBI made an arrest that caused Joe Biden this giant headache.
Businessman Ray Kelly is the GOP frontrunner in Michigan for the gubernatorial nomination.
On Wednesday, the FBI arrested Kelly on four misdemeanor charges related to his activities at the Capitol on January 6.
The Detroit News reports:
Federal court records describe Kelley as being an active participant in the riot, climbing onto portions of the Capitol, encouraging yelling, gesturing to participants and removing a covering from a temporary structure outside the Capitol.
The records also portray Kelley as being under investigation within days of the riot and reveal that FBI agents relied on assistance from an informant who was helping the bureau investigate domestic terrorism.
In one clip, Kelley is shown using his hands to support another rioter who is pulling a metal barricade, according to the complaint.
“At approximately 2:20 p.m., Kelley continued to gesture to the crowd, consistently indicating that they should move towards the stairs that led to the entrance of the U.S. Capitol interior spaces,” the complaint reads.
The FBI arresting Kelly came just hours after Joe Biden went on Jimmy Kimmel’s late night talk show and “joked” about how his strategy to deal with Republicans was throwing them in federal prison.

This is not the first time the FBI meddled in Michigan politics.
In October of 2020, the Justice Department announced the arrest of a number of Trump supporters for allegedly plotting to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
The case fell apart when it was revealed that not only were there more undercover FBI informants in the group than actual plotters, but that the FBI also fabricated the kidnapping plot from soup to nuts.
Because it was clear the FBI entrapped the men, a jury either acquitted or failed to reach a verdict on the most serious charges against the accused kidnappers.
Ever since the Russian collusion hoax and the FBI’s role in the coup against Trump, millions of Americans now see the FBI as the political enforcers of the Democrat Party.
The FBI arresting the top contender to take on a vulnerable Democrat Governor will only fuel those perceptions.
