Jan 6 Riot Suspect Arrested After Frat Brother Reports To FBI

An Oklahoma man was arrested last week for his alleged role in the US Capitol riot after one of his college fraternity brothers reported to the FBI.

After Pence refused to participate in the effort, Trump supporters condemned him. Some rioters in the Capitol were heard chanting for him to be hanged.
