Brandon Straka of Omaha, Nebraska, best known among conservatives as the founder of the #WalkAway movement, was arrested on Monday by the FBI in Omaha, relating his presence at the uprising at the U.S. Capitol building in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 6.

A report published Monday by the Omaha World-Herald states that Straka, 44, is being held at the Douglas County Jail in Omaha, and his first appearance in federal court is scheduled for Tuesday.

A criminal complaint made public by the Justice Department outlines the actions Straka is being accused of, and charges filed against him. According to the report, he did not actually enter the building, but was encouraging others to surge forward.

Straka is being charged with:

  • impeding a law enforcement officer during civil disorder
  • knowingly entering and remaining on restricted grounds without lawful authority and/or engaging in disorderly conduct within proximity to a restricted building to impede official functions
  • engaging in disorderly conduct with intent to disturb a hearing before Congress

In the criminal complaint, the FBI agent reported the following:

After reviewing STRAKA’s Twitter account, I discovered that he had posted a 58-
minute video of himself on January 7 in which he discussed the events of January 6, 2021. About one minute into the video, STRAKA stated, “I literally just got home…minutes ago from Washington, D.C.” Later in the video, STRAKA stated, “Yesterday, a lot of us got up very, very early. We went to this event in which Donald Trump spoke. The plan was always to go to the Capitol. We were going to march from that event…to the Capitol, and there was going to be another rally. I was one of the speakers slated to speak at the Capitol.” STRAKA later stated that, while riding the metro to the Capitol, he received alerts on his phone stating that Vice President Pence was “not going to object to certifying Joe Biden.” STRAKA stated that he learned on his walk from the metro to the Capitol that people had “breached” the Capitol and that “patriots had entered the Capitol.”

STRAKA said that he thought to himself, “Wow, so they’re going to basically storm and try to get into the chamber so that they can demand that we get the investigation that we want.”

STRAKA later described what he did when he arrived at the U.S. Capitol. STRAKA
described himself making his way through a crowd of people and walking up the stairs to the U.S. Capitol. STRAKA stated that he observed two large metal doors. STRAKA said that he saw “nothing being broken” and “nobody committing any acts of violence” or “vandalism.”

STRAKA described a “bottleneck effect” that resulted from the large group of people
trying to get into the building. STRAKA stated that he was within 10 to 20 feet of the building when he saw “bursts of teargas coming out of the doors.” STRAKA said, “Shortly after that, a man came out, he said, “They’ve cleared Congress. Everybody’s left. There’s no one else inside. Everybody turn around. No one else come inside.” STRAKA further stated that the man “said something to the effect of it being a victory for us, we got what we wanted, they cleared Congress.” STRAKA stated that he left the Capitol shortly after this interaction.

In the criminal complaint, the FBI alleges that Straka made comments such as “HOLD THE LINE,” “We’re going in,” and “Go, go!”

The complaint describes a video in which a Capitol Police Officer is holding up his shield, and Straka said, “Take it away from him,” and “Take it! Take it!”

Straka’s Twitter account has been locked, but some of the video clips he broadcast from the riot are still circulating on social medial, including the following, in which he says, “They’re using gas. We’re being gassed right now.”  According to the complaint, it was at this point that Straka left, and did not enter the building.

  1. That’s all great. Lawbreakers must be held accountable and brought to justice. There were many other lawbreakers who did significantly more damage to properties and caused deaths and injuries all over the country for months. We should also ID and find every one of them as well.

  2. WOW!! How pathetic the left is. The man got people to open their eyes and leave the Dem party. So they knew they could not win legally so they cheated. And there are videos showing where the police escorted busses full of antifa people in. There are videos of Trump supporters trying to keep those people out of the building. Why. Cause that’s not how Trump supporters are.

  3. He never went into building??? In that case, the FBI has 15,000 more people to arrest??? Then the FBI has to arrest the 15,000 people inciting riots and causing $2.5 Billion in damage over the summer, right? Oh, I forgot, the summer things were peaceful protests???

  4. What we are seeing here is the Take Over From These Evil Corrupt FBI And Other Law Enforcement.
    Listen To Laura Ingraham, Monday Night, Very Scary What Is Happening To Citizens And Our Military, Just Like China.

  5. Interesting Portland is still under siege with big G doing nothing to stop the destruction….Wonder why? I guess that’s considered a “peaceful” demonstration

  6. Funny FBI CAN identify people at the capital but not from Blm/antifa who called for the death of police trapping federal agents and locked them in the buliding while trying to burn it down. But hey it’s antifa so who gives a sh*t . They have and can get by with murder. 99% of Trump supporters are law abiding citizens but that may change before too long IJS. I’m not calling for violence just stating a fact. Agents that have been payed off are probably going to have a lot of innocent blood on their hands

  7. First, understand what the FBI is. It doesn’t solve crime; it manages it. Together with the CIA, it is part of the Deep State junta that has secretly guided us since the Coup of ‘63, in the interests of itself and the Anglo-American oligarchs it serves. Since Donald Trump’s candidacy took off in 2016, it has always regarded him as a major threat, because he is too far out of its control. Those who serve the Deep State’s interests get virtual immunity. Those who challenge it are railroaded. Just ask Roger Stone and Michael Flynn.

    Second, what was it Straka did? He was aware of a very serious crime taking place in the Capitol and tried to stop it. In the process he may have broken less serious laws in his effort to prevent the commission of a far greater crime. Any honest observer of our 2020 election knew it was being stolen, and the U.S. Congress was on the verge of ratifying the crime. Straka was only doing what every able-bodied American adult had the affirmative duty to do, which was to do all within his power to prevent the theft of our election. Just because our judges shirked their duty, and so many Congressmen and state officials violated their oaths, did in no wise relieve Straka, or any of us, of our duty as Americans to act, in this situation of extremis, to preserve our right to suffrage and self-government.
