Kyle Travis Colton, charged in the Jan. 6 Capitol Riot, now faces new federal charges of receiving child pornography.

Indicted for receiving explicit images of children, he could face up to 20 years in prison.

“These interviews revealed that Colton discussed with Witness 1 and Witness 2, who were sitting near Colton on the flight, entering the United States Capitol Building in the ‘second wave,’” court documents read.

“Colton also showed Witness 2 pictures from the rally at the Ellipse and a video depicting other rioters pushing and struggling with law enforcement taken from inside of the U.S. Capitol building.”

“These officers had initiated crowd clearing measures to include forming a police line, giving loud verbal commands, and using batons to move persons towards the exit door,” the records stated. “Colton only moved when the crowd was physically pushed towards the exit.

Colton’s involvement in child pornography was alleged before his arrest related to the Capitol Riot.

He had bragged about being part of the riot’s “second wave” to fellow passengers.

Video evidence shows him defying orders from officers inside the Capitol building.

“Colton gained control of the flagpole, which Officer K.D. had also grabbed, and then gave it back to this rioter, who then fled into the crowd of rioters with the flagpole,” the records stated.
