Trump State Department appointee Federico Klein offered plea deal in Capitol riot case

Capitol riotPlea negotiations are underway in the case of Federico Klein, a former Trump State Department appointee who's accused of charging a police line during the deadly Capitol assault Jan. 6.

Prosecutors offered a plea deal earlier this week, but the offer has not been accepted, Klein's attorney, Stanley Woodward, said during a hearing Thursday. Woodward said the offer was not "reasonable," although he did not offer more details.

Prosecutors said Klein, whose image was captured on police body cameras, appeared in front of a mob clashing with officers near the Capitol's west terrace. Klein and others ignored several orders from officers to back away and, instead, Klein "shoved" a shield into the door opening to prevent officers from securing the entrance, according to court documents.
