Dem Staffer Arrested After Posing As FBI Agent At Trump Rally, Leading Secret Service on Chase

A Democratic staffer faced some major legal problems after pulling a stunt at a Trump rally in 2020.

According to court documents, the Democratic staffer reportedly posed as an FBI agent at the rally before leading police and Secret Service on a chance through Washington, D.C. The documents noted that the suspect was finally arrested after a T-shirt he was wearing tipped off law enforcement.

Before he was busted, however, he secretly gave himself a huge raise of $80,000, a report said, citing the court papers.

The Blaze reports:

According to court documents, a staffer for Rep. Brad Schneider (D-Ill.) quietly resigned after he was accused of impersonating an FBI agent during a Trump rally on Nov. 14, 2020. Sterling Devion Carter allegedly showed up at a MAGA rally in Washington, D.C., but was posing as a fake FBI agent.

The Daily Beast added, “Carter, who was standing near his parked car, was wearing a black T-shirt that read ‘federal agent,’ a police duty belt, a Glock pistol, extra ammunition, handcuffs, a radio, and an earpiece.”

He apparently pulled off the hoax so successfully that, according to the report, people in the Trump crowd were thanking him for his service.
