He was arrested on Thursday on charges including civil disorder and assault of or interference with law enforcement for allegedly interfering with police officers trying to protect the Capitol building.

Before the riot, Resnick posted social media messages echoing the former president’s claim that the 2020 presidential elections won by Joe Biden were stolen from him.

In April 2021, Politico reported that the video showed Resnick inside the Capitol on the day of the riots.

The report added that Resnick later wrote an article defending the Capitol riot without acknowledging his presence in the building that day.

In a statement to the outlet, The Jewish Press editorial board confirmed Resnick was in the Capitol on 6 January and had been “covering the rally and the rest of the day’s terrible events” for the newspaper.

However, an FBI agent’s account of Resnick’s actions portrays him as an active participant in the riot.
