The wife of a decorated combat veteran who was inside the Capitol suffered a miscarriage one day after the FBI raided their home.
Christopher Kuehne maintains that he had traveled to the Capitol to protect Trump-supporting civilians from Antifa. Inside the Capitol, he was seen on video cleaning up trash before, he says, he helped to clear people out so police could get control of the situation.
In the early morning of February 11, Kuehne, his pregnant wife Annette, and their four-year-old child were awakened to sirens, cell phone rings, and bursts of colorful lights reflecting through their windows.
“The FBI instructed Chris to come outside immediately. Our 4-year-old was awakened from the chaos. I picked him up and ran downstairs to open the front door. Our house was completely surrounded by armed FBI and law enforcement, armored tactical vehicles, and police vehicles that extended throughout the community. For a second, I didn’t realize that there were about twenty FBI SWAT Team members with semi-automatic rifles pointed at my son and I because I was distracted by the bright red lasers pointed at our faces, chests, and various points on my 4-year-old son and I,” Annette wrote in a statement provided to the Gateway Pundit.
Annette wrote that “there is a bite in the air, snow still on the ground, our 4-year-old is crying and with guns drawn FBI SWAT storm through as I carried my son barefoot in the cold. Hours later, after the FBI left our home, I found myself on the phone calling anyone I could think of for help. Neighbors contacted me to ask if I needed anything, as I was in shock from what just happened. I didn’t realize what else was happening, as if this isn’t enough.”
The following day, she went to the hospital because she was feeling a sharp pain in her abdomen and bleeding. It was the baby.
“While in the doctor’s office, a nurse comes into the room and tells me that I need to have emergency surgery or I will bleed to death. She then escorts me to the emergency department,” Annette wrote. “I lost the baby.”
“To make matters worse, there was no way I could contact Chris at home to notify him of what was happening. I contacted a neighbor to inform Chris that I would be in immediate emergency surgery. I later found out that when the neighbor told Chris what was happening, he just broke down and cried uncontrollably with no way to go to, help, and comfort me,” she explained.
Her husband was released later that day, the afternoon after the raid, and the case was transferred to Washington, DC. He is charged with Conspiracy; Obstruction of an Official Proceeding and Aiding and Abetting; Obstruction of Law Enforcement During Civil Disorder and Aiding and Abetting; Entering and Remaining in a Restricted Building or Grounds and Carrying a Deadly or Dangerous Weapon; Entering and Remaining in a Restricted Building or Grounds and Carrying a Deadly or Dangerous Weapon.
Kuehne is a retired decorated combat veteran who has received numerous medals and awards including the Purple Heart, a Navy Commendation Medal with Valor, and a Navy and Marine Corp Achievement Medal with Valor for actions in combat. He served this country in the United States military for over twenty years. He was even awarded a rare Medal of Merit from the Boy Scouts of America for his actions involving scouting skills and ideals for saving his youngest sister’s life from the burning car she was in when he was 9 years old.
Annette explained that her husband “was injured in Ramadi, Iraq when an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) exploded just feet away throwing him in the air and then thrusting him to the ground. Consequently, Chris has had numerous back surgeries and surgeries relating to his injuries. He also suffers from chronic PTSD, TBI (often described/referred/or known as the ‘invisible wounds’), and a host of other medical illnesses, injuries, and conditions.”
Kuehne maintains that he was not armed and did not have any sort of altercation with police. In video of the protest, you can see him, with his back to the person filming, picking up trash. The family maintains that he was simply concerned about the dozens, perhaps hundreds, of people who have been assaulted simply for supporting Donald Trump in recent years. As a veteran and patriot, he has been adamant that he has nothing but respect for law enforcement and the military.
In order to drag him through the mud, and make for splashier headlines, the media has been claiming that he is a member of the Proud Boys. The Gateway Pundit has confirmed that he is not, though he was friendly with some of the members of the men’s social club.
The family is now seeking financial help as they attempt to fight this — so that their four-year-old son can grow up with his loving father.
“Chris has personally sacrificed his blood, sweat, and tears serving our country. Can you please help support a retired Combat Veteran Christopher Kuehne in his fight for freedom? I am asking for prayers and any donations to assist in this costly legal process,” his wife wrote.
