US Olympic swimming gold medalist Klete Keller has been charged by the Justice Department with participating in the January 6 attack on Congress by supporters of President Donald Trump.

Keller was filmed as part of the crowd that illegally entered the huge Rotunda hall of the Capitol after violent protesters broke through police lines and forced their way in.

A statement accompanying formal charges unveiled on Wednesday said police identified the three-time Olympian first by what appears to be an official team jacket bearing the large logo “USA” on the back and an arm patch that read “United States Olympic team.

He was charged with illegally entering the Capitol, violent or disorderly conduct, and obstructing law enforcement.PN/JA
