(ConservativeHub.com) – On Jan. 6, in 2021 then-President Donald Trump’s supporters broke into the U.S. Capitol causing both damages to the property as well as assaulting dozens of U.S. officers. Following the attack, both the FBI and the Justice Department honed in and started making arrests. So far, their investigations have mainly been focused on the people who were present during the attack. As a result, there have been more than 900 arrests resulting in 500 guilty pleas for several different charges.
The high number of arrests is not the only notable thing regarding the U.S. Capitol attack, as a result of the attack a number of conspiracy charges that have not been used in decades were used to charge certain individuals. Overall there are around 3,000 people who could have been brought in by the FBI. There are also 250 people who are currently on the FBI’s wanted list because of their involvement in assaulting officers. The person responsible for the planting of pipe bombs outside Democratic National Committee and Republican National Committee has also not yet been found.
Federal prosecutors only have three more years to bring everyone they need to be arrested to justice, as after that timeframe the statute of limitations for most offenses will have run out. In order to continue their investigation the Justice Department is set to receive millions of dollars in funding. Going into the new year, the Department of Justice will also need to deal with the GOP overlooking their investigations as they have control of the House now.
