The Department of Justice on Friday announced that 13 people are facing federal charges stemming from a riot Wednesday at the Capitol.
The full court records have not yet been made available for all defendants and only a handful of the individuals have made court appearances.
In addition to those who have been charged, the Justice Department says that additional complaints “have been submitted and investigations are ongoing.”
“The lawless destruction of the U.S. Capitol building was an attack against one of our Nation’s greatest institutions,” said Acting US Attorney Michael Sherwin. “My Office, along with our law enforcement partners at all levels, have been expeditiously working and leveraging every resource to identify, arrest, and begin prosecuting these individuals who took part in the brazen criminal acts at the U.S. Capitol.”
