More than 170 investigative case files have been opened relating to the Capitol Hill riot in support of President Donald Trump that left five people dead last week, United States law enforcement officials said on Tuesday, with more than 70 charges ranging from misdemeanour trespassing to felony arms charges having also been filed to date. Al Jazeera reports that, with the FBI having received more than 100,000 pieces of digital media, acting US Attorney for the District of Columbia Michael Sherwin, said that the 70 charges levied so far are “only the beginning” and that a task force is investigating possible charges of conspiracy and sedition, on top of those already filed.
