During a press conference on Tuesday, Acting U.S. Attorney Micheal Sherwin gave an update on the current and upcoming investigations regarding the attack on the U.S. Capitol by supporters of Donald Trump.
“The Capitol — the grounds outside and inside — are essentially a crime scene,” Sherwin said, adding that he believes when all is said and done, there will be “hundreds of criminal cases.”
“As we sit here now literally days after this event happened, we have already opened more than 170 subject files, meaning these individuals have been identified as potential persons that committed crimes on the Capitol grounds inside and outside,” he said, adding that the number of cases is likely to grown “by the hundreds” in the coming weeks.
Sherwin said that the range of charges go from simple trespassing to felony murder.
