Federal agents searched the home of a former Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) employee Friday night. She is suspected of participating in the Wednesday insurrection at the U.S. Capitol Building. No one was taken into custody, according to the FBI.

The district said Friday that Christine Priola resigned from that job on Thursday, the day after the riot at the Capitol.

The resignation letter, which was in her personnel file released by CMSD, reads, in part, that she will be “switching paths to expose the global evil of human trafficking and pedophilia, including in our government and children’s services agencies.”

The Cleveland Teachers Union issued a statement Friday condemning the attacks on our “democratic institutions” and calling for “rioters who broke the law to be held accountable.”
