Failed Brooklyn politician cuffed for Jan. 6 riot

Federal authorities cuffed a failed Brooklyn politician for allegedly breaking into the US Capitol building on Jan. 6. 

Daniel Christmann — who lost a race for state Senate against Julia Salazar in northern Brooklyn last year — allegedly posted multiple Instagram posts from his account “dannyforsenate” showing him amid a violent mob of rioters inside the building looking to overturn the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.
