New webpage lists all federally charged in violent attack on Capitol Hill

The United States Department of Justice (DOJ) is listing all those currently facing federal charges in connection with the murderous January 6 attack on the nation’s Capitol.

As of Friday, a total of 46 people were charged by the federal government with offenses related to the violent insurgency in Washington on January 6, which left five dead. Offenses include, but are not limited to: entering restricted grounds, carrying a firearm on Capitol Hill grounds, possessing a destructive device, damaging or destroying property government and more.

The DOJ lists the name of each person arrested, their state of residence, the charges against them and the status of their case.

Arrests and charges continue to be brought as federal agencies continue their investigation after pro-Trump rioters – some armed – stormed and looted Capitol buildings as members of Congress gathered, forcing lawmakers to flee to a safe place. In recent court records, federal prosecutors said members of the pro-Trump mob were aiming to “capture and murder elected officials.”

On January 8, the Justice Department announced that 13 people had been charged by the federal government in connection with the attack so far, and about 40 others were facing charges in Superior Court. It is likely that others have been indicted by Superior Court since then, but the Justice Department does not list these charges on its website.

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has warned that more protests are planned in all 50 states ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20. In Michigan, six-foot fences were also built around the Capitol in Lansing to prevent protesters from storming the building.
