On Thursday, US Attorney John Durham encouraged people with information about the US Capital incursion to contact the FBI.
“We encourage people with information related to the activity yesterday at the US Capitol to contact the FBI (https://tips.fbi.gov/digitalmedia/aad18481a3e8f02),” he wrote.
“If the District of Connecticut is the appropriate venue for the prosecution of individuals involved in that disgraceful and criminal activity, our office will aggressively pursue any such matter,” he added.
The acting US Attorney General Jeffery Rosen released a statement saying, “Yesterday, our Nation watched in disbelief as a mob breached the Capitol Building and required federal and local law enforcement to help restore order.”
“The Department of Justice is committed to ensuring that those responsible for this attack on our Government and the rule of law face the full consequences of their actions under the law,” he continued. “Our criminal prosecutors have been working throughout the night with special agents and investigators from the US Capitol Police, FBI, ATF, Metropolitan Police Department and the public to gather the evidence, identify perpetrators, and charge federal crimes where warranted.”
Rosen said some participants in Wednesday’s violence will be charged on Thursday.
“We will continue to methodically assess evidence, charge crimes and make arrests in the coming days and weeks to ensure that those responsible are held accountable under the law,” he added.
