WASHINGTON — The FBI is investigating whether foreign governments, organizations or individuals provided financial support to extremists who helped plan and execute the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, one current and one former FBI official told NBC News. Those payments were documented and posted on the web this week by a company that analyzes cryptocurrency transfers. Payments of bitcoin, a cryptocurrency, can be traced because they are documented on a public ledger. "In at least one instance, a Russian proxy claimed that ANTIFA members disguised themselves as supporters of President Trump, and were responsible for storming the Capitol building." But the cryptocurrency payments prompted the FBI to examine whether any of the money was used to find illegal acts, which, if true, raises the possibility of money laundering and conspiracy charges, the FBI official said.

Higgs, who was pronounced dead at 1:23 a.m., was the thirteenth federal convict put to death under Trump.

Over 20 Latino leaders from progressive groups in Florida have signed a letter calling on Spanish-language and Latino-focused media outlets in Miami to stop spreading misinformation "that emboldens conspiracy theories." The day of the riot, a host on AM station Actualidad falsely claimed that "thousands of dead people voted, thousands of incarcerated people voted, thousands of noncitizens voted." The host, Agustin Acosta, went to say, "I think that in Nevada or Arizona, 42,000 people voted more than once." Another AM radio host the day after the riot said the loose collective of activists known as antifa had sent "busloads" of people to Washington. This includes sharing recent audio recordings of misleading A.M. radio broadcasts circulating in South Florida that push these false and dangerous narratives.

The California agency asked the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia to throw out the FCC’s order approved in October as “arbitrary, capricious, and an abuse of discretion.”The appeals court in October 2019 largely upheld the FCC’s repeal, but ordered the agency to reconsider the repeal’s impact on public safety and other issues.
