Authorities said on Monday that a man linked to the Oath Keepers militia group and former President Trump’s ally Roger Stone has been arrested.
ABC News reported that Roberto Minuta of Newburgh, N.Y., was arrested on Saturday after he was seen in a video walking alongside Stone while outside a D.C. hotel on Jan. 6, the day of the deadly Capitol breach.
The charges against Minuta have not yet been made public, according to ABC News.
Speaking to the outlet, Minuta’s wife confirmed that he was at the Capitol on the day of the riot but claimed that he never went inside, saying he was “another patriot outside the Capitol Building … standing up for freedom.”
ABC News noted that at least five people associated with the Oath Keepers have been arrested, with three charged with conspiracy.
