A U.S. Capitol police officer was arrested Friday for obstruction of justice charges related to communications with another man later criminally charged for participation in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot by Trump supporters.
The cop, Michael Riley, allegedly deleted Facebook messages to and from that person a day after the other person was arrested on Jan. 19, and previously had urged the man to delete information from that own man’s Facebook page which showed him inside the Capitol during the invasion, according to a charging document.
