The feds on Monday busted a Queens Republican district leader who climbed into the Capitol through a broken window during last month’s insurrection — after two tipsters recognized him in news footage.

Philip Grillo, 46, of Glen Oaks, Queens, was taken into custody on a felony charge at his girlfriend’s house after two people saw him on CNN and contacted the FBI, according to federal prosecutors.

He’s a state committee member for Assembly District 24 and calls himself the “Republican Messiah” on Facebook, where he refers to his neighborhood as “Trump’s Hometown District.”

His arrest comes on the same day that the Senate is holding a hearing on the law enforcement failures of Jan. 6 riot when Trump supporters converged on the building as Congress voted to certify the election.

Surveillance footage captured Grillo enter the Capitol by jumping through a broken window, holding a megaphone, at about 2:20 p.m., court papers allege.
