WASHINGTON — In the days leading up to the Jan. 6 riot, Thomas Edward Caldwell, an apparent leader of the far-right Oath Keepers, had a message for the militia members he had organized to mobilize against Congress: “This kettle is set to boil.”Court documents unsealed on Tuesday said Mr. Caldwell, a 66-year-old from rural Virginia, advised the others on Dec. 31, “It begins for real Jan 5 and 6 on Washington D.C. when we mobilize in the streets. Let them try to certify some crud on capitol hill with a million or more patriots in the streets.”Mr. Caldwell and two associates from Ohio — Donovan Crowl, 50, and Jessica Watkins, 38 — were charged with conspiracy to commit federal crimes. All three had admitted to invading the Capitol to reporters and were also identifiable in videos posted on social media. The case revealed the first evidence of planning among a known militia group ahead of the day of chaotic mob violence. Investigators have said they are increasingly focused on right-wing extremist groups to determine whether any plotted aspects of the attack on the Capitol in advance, even as most of the rioters spontaneously stormed it.

WASHINGTON — F.B.I. agents and prosecutors investigating the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol have increasingly shifted their attention to dangerous right-wing extremist groups, arresting several people in recent days suspected of taking part in the violence and of possessing ties to notorious militias such as the Oath Keepers and the Three Percenters. The arrests, in Ohio, Colorado, Indiana and Texas, came as investigators gathered evidence to determine whether any of the groups had planned ahead of time to attack the Capitol. Videos and photos have revealed chilling scenes of rioters weaving through the mobs inside the building in tight formation, wearing tactical gear, carrying restraints and using hand signals and hand radios to communicate. Militia groups have a long history of taking part in anti-government events and right-wing political protests.

ET Live Updates: As Biden’s Inauguration Approaches Pressure Mounts on Some Trump Appointees The director of the Census Bureau resigned after claims that he politicized his role. The bureau acknowledged this month that it would be unable to produce the immigrant count sought by the administration before Mr. Trump left office. The report denounces the project, as did Mr. Trump in his September speech announcing the commission. Mr. Trump’s administration reversed that decision in early 2017, giving a green light for construction of the project to begin. The three choices are either strong loyalists to Mr. Trump or fierce critics of Ms. Whitmer.

ET Live Updates: Security Concerns Rise in Washington as Biden’s Inauguration Approaches State capitals around the country have deployed the National Guard to help with security. National Guard officials said they would most likely need at least 25,000 troops in Washington, 5,000 more than they projected this week. Mr. Biden has resisted calls to move the celebration indoors for the sake of safety. “We remain in a very dark winter,” Mr. Biden told Americans in a speech in Wilmington, Del., on Friday. in future elections, while forces aligned with Mr. Trump are looking to punish Republican lawmakers and governors who have broken with him.

ET Live Updates: Police Investigating Whether Lawmakers Gave Rioters Tour of Capitol Before Siege The Capitol Police are looking into whether members of Congress inappropriately gave visitors access to the Capitol ahead of last week’s assault. But Mr. Lindell’s ability to walk into the Oval Office and meet with Mr. Trump underscored the type of conspiracy theorists who still appeal to Mr. Trump, so long as they are saying what he wants to hear. Everytown for Gun Safety is calling for a ban on firearms in state Capitol buildings, polling places and vote-counting sites. Mr. Trump immediately seized on the investigation, using it as evidence to his false and discredited theories of widespread voter fraud. Lawmakers hid under their desks from violent protesters after President Trump encouraged them during a rally to head to the Capitol.

Newly released court documents made clear the danger at the Capitol was worse than feared, and prosecutors accused some of the riot’s most prominent figures of intent to harm lawmakers. At least 40 people have been arrested so far and nearly 100 charged in connection with the riot, law enforcement officials told reporters on Friday. On Friday, federal prosecutors in Washington unsealed charges against one of their most wanted, Dominic Pezzola, a 44-year-old former Marine and member of the far-right Proud Boys group. According to a cooperating witness quoted in court papers, Mr. Pezzola had taken the shield from a Capitol Police officer. “They plan to kill every single” person “they can,” the witness said, adding that Mr. Pezzola and his men had access to firearms.

A man who was photographed holding a Confederate battle flag inside the U.S. Capitol last week during the riot was arrested Thursday in Delaware, two law enforcement officials said. The man, Kevin Seefried, was wanted by the F.B.I., which had sought help from the public to identify him and had widely circulated a dispatch plastered with images of him. In a bulletin, the agency said that it was looking for assistance to identify individuals “who made unlawful entry” into the Capitol, including the man with the Confederate flag, now identified by The New York Times as Mr. Seefried. The top federal prosecutor in Washington said this week that he expected the number of people charged with crimes tied to the Capitol riot to rise into the hundreds. On Wednesday, federal agents made more arrests in New York, Maryland, Texas and Florida, among them a firefighter from the town of Sanford, near Orlando.

“He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding.” “These facts require immediate actions by President Trump,” he continued. A few Republicans defended him, but most others simply argued that a rush to impeach Mr. Trump without a hearing or an investigation raised constitutional questions. With Democrats controlling the House, Mr. Trump is expected to become the first American president to be impeached twice. Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington sent a letter to Mr. Trump on Sunday asking for an emergency declaration to obtain additional funding for inauguration security. On Tuesday, a federal inspector general questioned an order to deliver the estimates before Mr. Trump leaves office, after whistle-blowers warned that the rush would imperil their accuracy.

WASHINGTON — Amid the sea of troubling facts, arrests and iconic images that have emerged in the days since the assault on the Capitol, one element remains largely absent: reassurances from some of the nation’s top national security officials. Neither the acting attorney general, Jeffrey A. Rosen, nor the F.B.I. director, Christopher A. Wray, has appeared at the type of high-profile news conference that typically marks a major criminal investigation, instead issuing news releases. Mr. Rosen also called for calm and vowed to fully investigate the violence, but the comments came in a video posted by the Justice Department on YouTube around midnight. Chad F. Wolf, the departing acting secretary of homeland security, was in the Middle East during the siege and did not return until later in the week.

Supporters of President Trump had descended on Washington to protest Congress’ ceremonial certification of the Electoral College after weeks of his baseless claims of election irregularities. warned local law enforcement partners that armed protests were being planned in all 50 state houses and the U.S. Capitol. Lawmakers were left rattled; several confided afterward that they were fearful of re-entering the Capitol this week.

WASHINGTON — Federal law enforcement officials vowed on Tuesday to accelerate a nationwide manhunt for hundreds of people who committed serious crimes during last week’s assault on the Capitol, even as new evidence surfaced that the F.B.I., police and White House were warned of potential violence that day. Michael R. Sherwin, the acting U.S. attorney in Washington, called the investigation into the attack on the Capitol “unmatched” in scope and said it had already resulted in more than 170 cases involving 100,000 digital tips. He pledged that prosecutors could file charges of seditious conspiracy, murder and other serious felonies in the weeks ahead. “The Capitol grounds outside and inside are essentially a crime scene,” Mr. Sherwin said during a news conference in Washington, adding that “we have literally thousands of potential witnesses” around the country. reports that warned of war and blowing up a building at a Midwest statehouse, and a White House meeting where President Trump and top military officials discussed deploying the National Guard.

Pentagon officials say they are deeply worried about protests that are planned for the inauguration of President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. next week. About 16 groups — some of them saying they will be armed and most of them made up of hard-line supporters of Mr. Trump — have registered to stage protests in Washington, officials said. While those scenarios are among the more extreme, the officials said they were particularly worried about the possibility of multiple, violent confrontations, including with firearms, simultaneously flaring up around the inaugural dignitaries. Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington sent a letter to Mr. Trump on Sunday asking for an emergency declaration to obtain additional funding for inauguration security. “In light of the attack on the Capitol and intelligence suggesting further violence is likely during the inaugural period, my administration has re-evaluated our preparedness posture for the inauguration, including requesting the extension of D.C. National Guard support through Jan. 24, 2021,” Ms. Bowser wrote.

Op-ed: It's time for Congress to hold social media companies liable

This would require a shift in how companies like Facebook , Twitter and Google 's YouTube do business and could raise their costs significantly. Congress should pass, and the next president should sign, legislation saying that social media networks can be held liable for damage caused by incitements to violence and libelous false information shared on their platforms. For the last four years, social media networks provided a venue for false and insane conspiracy theories like QAnon to spread until they reached millions. Social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube have provided too much leeway for these and others like them to spread lies and organize. I'm advocating to give the platforms a financial incentive to block and remove more content, in line with the restrictions traditional media companies have faced on free speech for decades.)

Justice Dept. Pursues at Least 150 Suspects in Capitol Riot

WASHINGTON — The Justice Department and the F.B.I. have embarked on a nationwide manhunt to track down scores of people who attacked the Capitol last week, according to law enforcement officials, as they grapple with the fallout from the widespread government failure to protect the building. Investigators are pursuing more than 150 suspects for prosecution, a total that is almost certain to grow, an official said. Analysts are also scouring intelligence to identify any role that domestic terrorist organizations or foreign adversaries may have played in radicalizing Americans who were among the rioters, according to a law enforcement official briefed on the investigations. The Capitol Police have also opened internal inquiries into about 10 to 15 officers’ actions during the violence, though the nature of the inquiries were unclear, and Mr. Ryan cautioned that he had seen no sign that any officers helped coordinate the attack.

The U.S. attorney in Washington initially refused to rule out investigating Mr. Trump’s role in the riot. The deadly storming of the Capitol by Mr. Trump’s supporters transformed the politics of Washington in ways that were still hard to measure. The December call to the investigator, like the call Mr. Trump made to Mr. Raffensperger, was recorded, the official said. Mr. Trump had pressured Mr. Pence publicly and privately to overturn the certifications and throw them back to the states so that Mr. Trump could try to undo results in states that Mr. Biden won. Parler is one of several upstarts that have courted President Trump’s supporters with promises of “unbiased” and “free speech” social networks.

A lawmaker from West Virginia and a man who broke into Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office and posed at her desk were among those arrested on charges related to the siege at the Capitol, federal law enforcement officials announced on Friday as they promised an exhaustive investigation into the violence. The authorities also found 11 Molotov cocktails and a semiautomatic rifle in the truck of a 70-year-old man from Alabama who was also arrested, according to prosecutors. “We are far from done,” added Steven M. D’Antuono, who runs the F.B.I.’s Washington field office. Federal law enforcement officials have charged at least five people, they said. Washington police have also arrested dozens, mostly on charges of unlawful entry and curfew violations.

actually thought,” the report said, referring to the intelligence community. His office revised a draft that emphasized intelligence gaps over what was known about those threats. Mr. Zulauf’s report said the revised version “buried the lead.”Mr. Zulauf said he did not interview Mr. Grenell because he was no longer under his purview as ombudsman. Asked for a response, Mr. Grenell criticized the ombudsman for not talking to him. Mr. Zulauf also examined how the intelligence agencies analyzed Russia’s and China’s intentions and activities in relation to the 2020 election for a classified assessment in August of foreign election interference.

“The goal here is to identify people and get them,” Mr. Kohl said. Also among those arrested was Derrick Evans, a newly elected lawmaker from West Virginia, Mr. Kohl said. Mr. Evans posted video to his Facebook page of him filming as he stood among the crowd outside a Capitol door, shouting, “There we go! “I’ll probably be telling them this is what happened all the way to the D.C. jail,” Mr. Barnett told a reporter later on Wednesday. The images of Mr. Barnett were “shocking” and “repulsive,” said Jeffrey A. Rosen, the acting attorney general.

“It’s a quiet neighborhood,” said Diana Hernandez, who lived a few blocks away. Neighbors said that Mr. Warner grew up in a home roughly a quarter-mile away. No one answered when a reporter visited the property on Saturday, and other efforts to reach Mr. Warner’s family were unsuccessful. Bernice Gilley, who has lived across the street from the Warner family for 56 years, said she remembered Mr. Warner and his brother playing football in the yard as children. Mr. Warner’s only apparent tie to the company to come to light so far is a rather tenuous one: His father once worked for Southern Bell, which eventually merged into what is now AT&T.
