Since supporters of President Donald Trump swarmed the US Capitol on January 6 â€” forcing Congress to go into lockdown and damaging the halls of government â€” 259 people have been arrested and charged with crimes.
But since many rioters were allowed to walk free on January 6, it’s taking some time to track them down.
At a press conference on January 12, Michael Sherwin, the acting US attorney in Washington, DC, said the FBI had opened more than 170 subject files and expected the number of charges to grow into the hundreds.
By January 15, Steven D’Antuono, the assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Washington field office, said the bureau had identified more than 270 suspects and taken 100 people into custody.
This table includes the names, charges, and links to court documents of all the people charged so far. We’re keeping it updated as more names are released.
