The New York Daily News reports:
A Brooklyn plumber with a short-lived political career was busted Wednesday for climbing though a U.S. Capitol building window to join fellow rioters in the Jan. 6 insurrection — with photos showing the bearded suspect amidst the crazed crowd inside the federal landmark.
Daniel Christmann, 38, was arrested at his home on federal charges after a pair of tipsters identified him to investigators, according to court documents.
Chirstmann, who mounted an unsuccessful run for a state senate seat in 2020, was then spotted on surveillance video reviewed by an agent with the FBI’s New York Joint Terrorism Task Force, according to an 18-page Brooklyn Federal Court complaint.
