WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A Virginia man with an apparent leadership role in the far-right militia group known as the “Oath Keepers” was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly “planning and coordinating” the Jan. 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol, the Justice Department said. REUTERS/Shannon Stapleton/File PhotoThomas Edward Caldwell, 65, of Clarke County, Virginia, is one of several members of the Oath Keepers named in a criminal complaint as having participated in the Capitol riots by President Donald Trump’s supporters. Other affiliates of the Oath Keepers group who were charged include Jessica Watkins, 38, of Champaign County, Ohio, who the criminal complaint said referred to herself on her Parler account as the “C.O. (commanding officer) of the Ohio State Regular Militia,” Donovan Ray Crowl, also of Ohio, and Jon Schaffer, a guitarist for the Indiana heavy metal band Iced Earth who was photographed during the riot wearing an Oath Keepers cap. Michael Sherwin, the top federal prosecutor in Washington, D.C., has said he suspects hundreds will face charges in the investigation, which is unprecedented in size and scope.

FILE PHOTO: U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office placard is replaced above her office after rioters vandalized it while storming the Capitol in Washington, U.S., January 17, 2021. The tipster said Williams “intended to send the computer device to a friend in Russia, who then planned to sell the device to SVR, Russia’s foreign intelligence service,” the affidavit stated. According to the tipster, “the transfer of the computer device to Russia fell through for unknown reasons and Williams still has the computer device or destroyed it,” the affidavit stated. Two days after the Capitol siege, Hammill said a laptop used for presentations was stolen from a conference room in Pelosi’s office. It was unclear whether that device was the one Williams was accused of taking.

- Pelosi tasks retired general Russel Honoré with the security review after US Capitol riot on January 6. Williams's mother told local law enforcement in Harrisburg, Pa. that Williams had "packed a bag and left her home and told her mother she would be gone for a couple of weeks." The FBI also reviewed video from the riot that appears to show Williams at the Capitol ushering a mob up a staircase that leads to Pelosi's office. The affidavit also notes that law enforcement in Harrisburg met with Williams's mother, who is not identified, on Jan. 11, after Williams's mother filed a suspicious persons report. The video shows Williams's mother claiming her daughter recently became interested in President Donald Trump's politics and message boards popular among the "far right."

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.

U.S. now says no evidence of 'kill capture teams' at U.S. Capitol

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The top federal prosecutor in Washington, D.C. said on Friday there is no “direct evidence” to suggest that rioters who stormed the U.S. Capitol had formed “kill capture teams.”The comments by Acting U.S. Attorney Michael Sherwin appeared to be an effort to walk back claims that federal prosecutors in Arizona had made in a court filing late on Thursday, in which they claimed there was evidence that rioters intended “to capture and assassinate elected officials”. Sherwin said that his office is leading the prosecution effort, but as local offices help to run down suspects in their districts, there may have been a “disconnect” on the evidence obtained so far in the cases. Late on Thursday, federal prosecutors had made sweeping claims about the ongoing investigation in a filing as they asked a judge to detain Jacob Chansley, an Arizona man and QAnon conspiracy theorist photographed wearing horns as he stood at the desk of Vice President Mike Pence in the chamber of the U.S. Senate. Chansley is due to appear in federal court later on Friday.

The FBI is investigating 37 people in connection with the death of Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, who died after being assaulted by the mob that stormed the Capitol last Wednesday. The FBI is investigating more than three dozen people in connection with the killing of Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, The New York Times reported Friday, citing an FBI memo. Sicknick died last Thursday at the hospital, where he was being treated for "injuries sustained while on-duty," USCP said in a statement. Over the weekend, numerous law enforcement officials from the Capitol and DC lined the streets for a procession for the fallen officer. "Officer Sicknick died in the line of duty as a US Capitol Police Officer but did so living up to the oath he swore in the military: to protect and defend the Constitution," she wrote in a request, according to the AP.

Mark Leffingwell of Seattle, who faces charges for assaulting a police officer, is an Iraq war veteran who suffers from PTSD and traumatic brain injury, his lawyer told a judge. Lonnie Coffman, a 70-year-old Alabama man arrested for having explosives in his truck, takes multiple drugs for mental illness, his lawyer told the judge in a hearing this week. Inside his truck, they found an AR-15-style rifle, a shotgun, a crossbow, several machetes, smoke grenades and 11 Molotov cocktails. Two other men, Eric Munchel and Larry Brock, both were photographed inside the Capitol carrying zip ties, commonly used as a handcuff. Michael Curzio, arrested at the front of a crowd inside the Capitol, had recently served a prison sentence in Florida for attempted murder.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A Virginia man who took part in the storming of the U.S. Capitol wearing a sweatshirt that said “Camp Auschwitz” is among a number of people arrested by the FBI over the assault, multiple media outlets reported on Tuesday. Robert Keith Parker appeared in a virtual hearing in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia on charges of unlawful entry and violent entry and disorderly conduct. Media outlets reported that Parker was the man shown in many photographs of last Wednesday’s assault on the Capitol wearing a sweatshirt emblazoned with the words “Camp Auschwitz”. The sweatshirt also bore a skull and cross bones and the words “Work Brings Freedom” - echoing the slogan in German over the gates at Auschwitz. Many of those who have been arrested were captured on video and in photos, with some bragging about their actions.

Several Democratic members of Congress have alleged that the mob at the US Capitol had help from people with insider knowledge of the building. On Tuesday, New Jersey Rep. Mikie Sherril released a Facebook Live video claiming she saw several members of Congress taking people on "reconnaissance" tours on January 5. Several Congressional Democrats have alleged the January 6 breach of the Capitol Building was aided by people on the inside. But on Tuesday, New Jersey Rep. Mikie Sherrill went further and released a 13-minute Facebook Live video in which she suggested that members of Congress were also complicit in the attack. Sherill said she witnessed members of Congress escort people through the Capitol Building on January 5, and referred to it as "reconnaissance" for the January 6 insurrection.

Then there is the more immediate concern: Law enforcement agencies owe the American people more regular updates on efforts to prevent further violence than they’ve received to date. For an administration that has failed time and again to perform the most simple tasks of governance, this halfhearted response is worrisome. Right now the priority must be reassurance, especially in light of last week’s systemic failure by multiple law enforcement agencies. Another question: How many members of law enforcement and the military participated in last week’s riot? One Secret Service officer is reportedly under investigation for posting comments on Facebook accusing lawmakers who confirmed Mr. Biden’s electoral victory of treason.

WASHINGTON — FBI agents are scouring more than 100,000 digital media files, and federal prosecutors have spent hours presenting felony cases to a Washington grand jury, as they seek to bring to justice those who committed crimes in the riot at the Capitol, authorities said Tuesday. They said that the FBI had opened 160 case files, and that "this is only the beginning," as Sherwin put it, outlining a large number of serious crimes that carry decadeslong prison terms. The FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms are investigating, for example, who put two pipe bombs outside the Capitol with timers and detonators. The bureau identified extremists who intended to travel to Washington and sought to stop them, he said, confirming a story first reported Sunday by NBC News. But a senior FBI official confirmed that the bureau did not issue a Joint Intelligence Bulletin, a formal report describing threat information that circulates to local law enforcement agencies.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Federal law enforcement authorities released the photo of a suspect wanted for questioning in connection with the murder of U.S. Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, Senator Bill Cassidy said on Twitter on Tuesday. Earlier on Tuesday, the FBI in New York City arrested another person in connection with the riots at the U.S. Capitol last week by supporters of President Donald Trump. An FBI spokeswoman said agents arrested Aaron Mostofsky, whom multiple news outlets identified as the son of New York Supreme Court Judge Shlomo Mostofsky. Mostofsky’s presence at the U.S. Capitol was cited in an article by the New York Post, which identified him as the state court’s son. The article also featured a video of Mostofsky dressed in a costume at the Capitol.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department has opened criminal investigations of more than 170 individuals on their involvement in the riot at the U.S. Capitol by President Donald Trump’s supporters, and investigators are working toward charging people with assault and seditious conspiracy, the top federal prosecutor in Washington, D.C. said on Tuesday. “I think the scope and scale of this investigation and these cases are really unprecedented, not only in FBI history, but probably DOJ history,” Acting U.S. Attorney Michael Sherwin said in a press briefing on Tuesday. “The Capitol grounds outside and inside are... a crime scene.”Sherwin said 70 criminal cases have been filed to date. “We’re looking at significant felony cases tied to sedition and conspiracy,” Sherwin said, noting his office has launched a strike force whose marching orders are to build criminal cases around such charges. He added that other strike forces have been formed to focus on assaults on law enforcement and members of the media.

He added that other strike forces have been formed to focus on assaults on law enforcement and members of the media. He later corrected his tweet, saying the man is a person of interest “for a separate incident that occurred” at the Capitol. Capitol Police and other federal law enforcement have been facing criticism for why they were not better prepared for the attack.

He was arrested Friday in Arkansas on federal charges of entering and remaining on restricted grounds, violent entry and theft of public property, the Justice Department said. Donning a fur hat with horns and American-flag inspired face paint, Angeli stormed the Capitol bare-chested and gloated in the aftermath. Guthrie, who didn't return requests for comment, was arrested the day of the riot and charged with unlawful entry. The Post said Mostofsky was holding a Capitol Police riot shield, which he claimed he had found on the floor.

No federal officials have held public briefings about the January 6 attack on the US Capitol. After Insider inquired about the lack of public briefings, the Justice Department announced it would host one at 3 p.m. Tuesday. Nearly a week after a mob stormed the US Capitol building, not a single federal official has hosted a public briefing to inform Americans about what happened, and what the federal government is doing to bring insurrectionists to justice. Neither Rosen nor Wray has given a public briefing, and neither are expected to participate in a briefing to members of Congress about the chaos, according to The Wall Street Journal. After Insider inquired about the lack of public briefings, the Justice Department announced it would host one at 3 p.m. Tuesday.
