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."

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.

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.

A public defender representing Chansley could not be immediately reached for comment. Chansley is due to appear in federal court on Friday. They also suggested he suffers from drug abuse and mental illness, and told the judge he poses a serious flight risk. “Chansley has spoken openly about his belief that he is an alien, a higher being, and he is here on Earth to ascend to another reality,” they wrote. Michael Sherwin, the Acting U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, has said that while many of the initial charges may seem minor, he expects much more serious charges to be filed as the Justice Department continues its investigation.

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.

As she made her ruling, Chansley interjected and tried to speak, but the judge cut him off, saying he should avoid making statements. Court filings in the cases suggested some of the rioters came prepared with weapons, gas masks, ballistic vests and zip ties. The FBI is also looking for suspects in connection with the death of Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick. Steven D’Antuono, assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Washington Field Office, urged suspects to turn themselves in. “As a matter of fact, even your friends and family are tipping us off.”

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.

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.

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.

U.S. National Guard riot shields are laid out at the ready outside the U.S. Capitol Building on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., January 13, 2021. The incoming Biden administration has significantly ramped up security around his team ahead of the Jan. 20 inauguration. The riot at the Capitol in Washington on Jan. 6 forced lawmakers to flee the inner chambers of the building, fearing for their lives. The biggest single security operation is in Washington, where Biden will be sworn in outside the Capitol next Wednesday. In Wisconsin, Governor Tony Evers authorized National Guard troops to support security efforts in the state capital of Madison.

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.

Two-time Olympic gold medal swimmer Klete Keller was among the crowd of President Donald Trump's supporters inside the U.S. Capitol during last week's insurrection, according to reports. The New York Times and Washington Post said they spoke to former teammates and coaches who identified the man in the video as Keller. Keller, 38, has not publicly commented on his alleged participation at the Capitol, which was first reported by the swimming website SwimSwam. After stepping away from the sport, Keller worked as an independent contractor for Hoff & Leigh, a real estate agency in Colorado Springs. Last Wednesday, hundreds of pro-Trump supporters breached the Capitol in protest of the Electoral College vote affirming President-elect Joe Biden's victory in the November election.

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.

ET Capitol Riot Live Updates: Federal Authorities Sound a Warning; Trump Urges No Violence The deadly breach at the Capitol will be a “significant driver of violence” for armed extremists who are targeting the presidential inauguration, according to a bulletin issued by federal authorities. “In lights of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking and NO vandalism of any kind,” Mr. Trump said. Shortly before Mr. Trump’s statement was released, Representative Kevin McCarthy of California, the Republican leader, spoke on the House floor, pinning blame on Mr. Trump for the attack. Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, who stood by the president during lesser controversies, told his associates that he believed Mr. Trump had committed impeachable offenses. The House is expected to impeach Mr. Trump, for the second time, on Wednesday.

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.
