(RepublicanNews.org) – The January 6 riot at the nation’s capital triggered a nationwide manhunt by the FBI. As of February 19, more than 250 individuals have been arrested and charged with crimes related to the incident.
Meanwhile, a recently unearthed clip of Joe Biden admitting he was arrested at the US Capitol Building is making the rounds on social media. Twitter user Michael Moore (no relation to the Leftist filmmaker) posted the clip on February 21, and within hours, it received more than 300,000 views.
Oh the irony. Biden said that he was arrested for trespassing at the Capitol. pic.twitter.com/cUid5QAIQ6

The clip shows Biden talking with former NBC host David Letterman in 2007. Letterman asked him what it felt like walking into the Senate chamber for the first time after winning his election to the body at 29 years old. Biden responded he actually walked into the room when he was 21 years old and was arrested after sitting in the presiding officer’s seat.
However, as Fox News reported, Biden falsely made a similar claim during the 2020 campaign cycle, saying he was arrested trying to visit Nelson Mandela in the 1970s. Washington Post fact-checkers subsequently gave the claim four Pinocchios, calling it “ridiculous.”
