Prosecutors claim that Klein, who also worked on Trump's 2016 campaign, "physically and verbally dealt with the officers holding the line" before attacking an officer with a protective shield - and opening a door with the stolen police equipment Pinched the Capitol to allow insurgents to enter.
"We need fresh people, we need fresh people!" Klein, wearing a red MAGA hat, can be heard screaming in a YouTube video as people stormed the building and the police tried to hold the crowd back.
Criminal complaint
During his first court appearance on Friday, Klein's appetite for chaos had diminished. After Judge Zia Faruqui read his charges to Klein, Klein announced that he was not happy with the conditions in a DC prison.
"I wonder if there is a place I can stay in custody where no cockroaches crawl over me while I try to sleep ... I mean, I really haven't slept that much, Your Honor. It would be nice if I could sleep in a place where cockroaches aren't everywhere, ”Klein said, according to the Washington Post.
Prosecutors argued on Friday that Klein should be detained pending trial for assaulting an officer. One federal defender, however, insisted that Klein's charges do not constitute a violent crime and that he should be released under reasonable conditions.
Criminal complaint
Klein's arrest on Thursday night in Virginia, first reported by Politico, was the first member of the Trump administration to be charged in connection with the deadly siege. More than 300 people have been charged in connection with the uprising that followed a speech by Trump whipping up false claims that he won the November 2020 election.
According to the complaint, Klein was identified by people who saw the FBI's social media campaign with photos of rioters in the Capitol. The FBI also found that until he stepped down on Jan. 19, he still had top-secret permits to work in the Brazilian and Southern Bowling Office.
Another tipster reported Klein's Facebook account to the government, which, according to court documents, was called "Freddie Klein". On Klein's Facebook page, he can be seen in photos of a group covered in MAGA gear - and another enjoying multiple Miller high lifes.
According to a ProPublica database of Trump officials, Klein worked as a special assistant in the Brazilian and Southern bowling affairs office after joining the State Department on Jan. 22, 2017, where he was paid $ 66,510.

A LinkedIn profile identified as Klein also states that he has been politically active in the Republican Party since at least 2008, when he volunteered for campaigns. Klein worked for the Trump campaign just before he started working for the State Department.
Klein's mother, Cecilia Klein, told Politico that her son had admitted to being in DC on January 6 - but told her that he was just “at the mall. He told me that. "
“Fred's politics burns a little hot ... but I never knew he was breaking the law. Although I believe he was at the mall as he said that day, I have no evidence and neither will you ever ask him unless he tells me where he was after he was at the mall was, "she added.
