DOJ: 'Hundreds' to be charged after Capitol riots, number of crimes is 'mind-blowing' and includes 'sedition and conspiracy' - TheBlaze
According to the DOJ officials, there are more than 170 active subject files seeking individuals identified as potential persons that committed crimes, a number that is expected to swell into the "hundreds" in coming weeks. The DOJ has launched investigations into serious felony charges of "sedition and conspiracy," as well as a "mind-blowing" number of crimes related to the events that transpired last week.
"That's just the tip of the iceberg," D'Antuono said in his statement.
He revealed that the FBI has collected more than 100,000 pieces of digital media from the public that authorities are using to investigate an extraordinarily broad range of crimes committed by the pro-Trump mob.
"I want to stress that the FBI has a long memory and a broad reach. Agents and our partners are on the streets investigating leads not only here in the D.C. area, but also across the country through the FBI's 56 field offices," D'Antuono added.
"Even if you've left D.C., agents from our local field offices will be knocking on your door if we find out you were a part of the criminal activity at the Capitol," he said.
