“Whether it was just an unauthorized entry into the Capitol grounds, or if the person in question placed a home-made bomb, you will be charged and caught.” Sherwin said at a press conference. The Federal Department of Justice is conducting an investigation into the events of last Wednesday with the FBI team in Washington.
A man with horns heads to the court
Reuters reported today that at least 60 people have been indicted in Washington courts since the riots on Wednesday. In custody in connection with the violent protest of supporters of the president Donald Trump ended up, among others, Jake Angela, who was photographed in the plenary session of the Senate in a fur hat with horns, or Richard Barnett, who was photographed in the office of House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi.
The investigation into the death of police officer Brian Sicknick, who succumbed to his injuries after a confrontation with rioters in the hospital, is probably still in its infancy. U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy posted a photo of a man allegedly being investigated by investigators on Twitter today. “If you know this man, please call the FBI,” the senator wrote of a picture of an elderly man with a gray beard and a blue winter hat that said “CFD.” Sicknick’s death is being investigated as murder.
A total of five people died as a result of the unrest in the Chapter. One woman was shot dead by the police, and three others were killed in health as a result of a medical incident. More than a dozen police officers were injured, and in addition to damage to the Congress building, thefts and attacks on journalists were reported.
According to D’Antuon, the current 160 open cases are just the tip of the iceberg. Sherwin called the investigation unprecedented by the FBI and the Department of Justice described to journalists an “astonishing” range of criminal behavior. The accusations are said to be for simple theft of mail, but also for the theft of potentially sensitive information, human rights offenses or murder. “We are investigating significant cases of serious crimes associated with subversive activity or a criminal conspiracy,” the prosecutor added.
Allegations of theft of government property, illegal Aaron Mostofsky is already facing illegal entry into Congress, as well as public nuisance, arrested by FBI agents in New York today. The media described the detainee as the son of New York judge Shlom Mostofsky.
Even longer a list of charges was filed today against Lonnie Leroy Coffman of Alabama, who is suspected of parking a car loaded with home-made explosives near Congress, firearms and ammunition.
According to Reuters, investigators continue to discuss photographs and videos posted on social networks, which captured the intrusion of hundreds of Trump supporters into the Capitol area and their clashes with police officers. Prior to the press conference, Sherwin again called on media representatives who had been attacked or faced threats to contact his office.
Referring to its sources, the NYT says investigators are already counting on prosecuting more than 150 people, while the number is very likely to increase.
“The Department of Justice and the FBI have launched a nationwide search operation to track down dozens of people who attacked the Capitol,” the paper said. The investigation is being led by the FBI’s Washington section, which has about 1,600 personnel, analysts are also reportedly looking at the radicalization of rioters and the possible involvement of “domestic terrorist organizations” or “foreign enemies”.
