A New Jersey man who calls himself a “dating and relationship strategist” was charged for his alleged role in the Capitol riot.

Patrick Stedman, 32, who writes a newsletter on “sex and female psychology” was busted Thursday after the FBI found videos he posted online during the mayhem in Washington DC.

“I was pretty much in the first wave, and we broke down the doors and climbed up the back part of the Capitol building and got all the way into the chambers,” Stedman says in a video posted to Twitter on Jan. 6, according to an FBI affidavit.

Another witness told the feds that Stedman had been “encouraging his tens of thousands of fans to join him in DC for weeks,” the court documents show.

Included in the affidavit is a screenshot of a Dec. 30 tweet from Stedman, where he says he “highly” recommends “all patriots come to DC on the 6th.”

Other videos posted to his account from Jan. 6 appear to be from inside the Capitol building, the affidavit says.

Stedman has been charged with entering a restricted building or grounds and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, authorities said.
