A detective story


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 reported, "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." Carter looked the part of a federal agent so convincingly well that people in the crowd thanked him for his service. 

Carter's vehicle was a blue Ford Taurus – which appeared to be an unmarked police cruiser. The car featured blue emergency lights, a spotlight on the driver's side door, a laptop mount on the dashboard, and a partition separating the front seats from the back seats for prisoner transport.
