Michigan Republican and gubernatorial candidate Ryan Kelley has been arrested by the FBI after his home was raided in “connection” with the events of January 6, 2021 at the U.S. capitol.
Many have been arrested and held for months in connection with January 6th, as we all know, and now a Whitmer challenger has been locked up, which doesn’t look bad or suspicious at ALL.

From Bridge Michigan:
A criminal complaint filed in Washington D.C. federal court shows Kelley is facing multiple charges for his role in protests at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, when supporters of former President Donald Trump stormed the building to try to stop certification of President Joe Biden’s win.
The FBI executed both a search warrant and arrest warrant at Kelley’s home in Allendale Township in western Michigan and arrested Kelley, spokesperson Mara Schneider told Bridge Michigan.
Video reviewed by Bridge Michigan appeared to show FBI agents leading Kelley into a gray SUV with them shortly before 9:30 a.m.
Perhaps not coincidentally, he frequently protested Whitmer.
