Arrests are being made as we speak, especially because of the death of Officer Sick Nick.
Sick Nick’s partner, Diseased Larry, is expected to survive.
What you are witnessing is the biggest political purge in American history.
A state lawmaker from West Virginia, a 70-year-old Alabamian armed with jars of gasoline and a man who broke into Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office and posed at her desk were among those arrested after the storming of the Capitol, federal law enforcement officials announced on Friday as they promised an exhaustive investigation into the violence.
The sweeping investigation took shape after a security breakdown two days earlier allowed hundreds of people backing President Trump’s efforts to overturn the election results to rush into the Capitol in a deadly rampage. The debacle prompted sharp recriminations and the firings of top officials who were entrusted with protecting lawmakers. Dozens have been arrested, including 13 who face federal charges.
Law enforcement officials also backed off a suggestion that Mr. Trump could face criminal charges for inciting the riot after a top prosecutor had said a day earlier that investigators were examining anyone involved, “not only” the rioters.
“Don’t expect any charges of that nature,” Ken Kohl, a top prosecutor in the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington, told reporters in a telephone briefing on Friday.
Law enforcement officials also sought to explain the security failure, saying that they had no indication that the day would turn violent. But Trump supporters had for weeks openly discussed on social media their plans to protest Congress’s certification of the Electoral College results, a typically ceremonial affair, and in some cases pledged to fight for their cause.
This is all going to drop out of the media.
The cops can’t keep saying “we had no idea lol” and the media can’t keep saying “they should explain why they just let these people march single file into the Capitol.”
The number of arrests is likely to grow quickly as investigators pore over social media to identify the rioters. And some could face more serious charges, including in the death of Brian D. Sicknick, a Capitol Police officer who was overpowered by rioters who, according to two law enforcement officials, struck his head with a fire extinguisher. He was rushed to the hospital and died on Thursday.
I want to stress again that although Officer Sick Nick has died after getting hit in the head with a fire extinguisher, his partner, Officer Diseased Larry, is expected to make it through, even though a MAGA supporter dropped an ACME anvil on his head.
Sick Nick dies, Diseased Larry lives – life is mysterious, sometimes.
Hundreds of prosecutors and F.B.I. agents have been assigned to work the investigation and were pursuing dozens of cases, Mr. Kohl said.
“We are far from done,” added Steven M. D’Antuono, who runs the F.B.I.’s Washington field office.
The investigation is likely to span weeks and stretch across the country as the F.B.I. seeks to identify those who were involved in the melee. U.S. attorneys and the F.B.I. were pursuing conspiracy charges against people who might have traveled together and then broken into the Capitol, and some already charged were from Florida, Maryland, Illinois, Virginia, Pennsylvania and elsewhere.
“The goal here is to identify people and get them,” Mr. Kohl said.
The Washington police have also arrested dozens, mostly on charges of unlawful entry and curfew violations.
One of the most serious federal cases involved Lonnie L. Coffman of Falkville, Ala. In the bed of his truck, officers found what they described as an M4 assault rifle and magazines loaded with ammunition. They also found rags, lighters and 11 glass Mason jars filled with a liquid later identified as gasoline.
Bomb technicians determined that they were meant to be turned into Molotov cocktails — small, hand-thrown fire bombs. Mr. Coffman was arrested when he tried to return to his truck around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday. The police found two handguns in his pants pockets, a 9-millimeter handgun in his right front pocket and a .22-caliber pistol in his left front pocket.
When questioned by the police, Mr. Coffman said his Mason jars contained “melted Styrofoam and gasoline,” which would have behaved similarly to napalm when ignited.
Good job explaining yourself to the cops there, bro. I’m sure that will help you in court.
It would have been funnier if he had a Magnum revolver in a shoulder strap.
There’s very little funny about this situation, but “and also he had a Python 357 with a beautiful walnut grip in a shoulder strap” would have brightened up my day.
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! Open the door!” and chanting, “Our house! Our house!” before rushing inside. “We’re going in!” he added.
Though he deleted the video, the F.B.I. found a copy on Reddit.
FBI confirmed reddit scum.
I told you.
Another man taken into custody, Richard Barnett, 60, from Gravette, Ark., had posted a picture on social media of himself sitting at Ms. Pelosi’s desk with his feet up and had said he expected to be arrested. “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 funny how things that are “shocking” and “repulsive” to Jews are “hilarious” and “epic lulz” to goyim.
Meanwhile, Jews like Rosen find anal sex and the murder of Christ to be entertaining.
But yeah, Richard is likely to die in prison over these lulz.
We must never forget him.
Long live the fighters.
Mr. Barnett faces three criminal counts that included knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful entry; violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds; and theft of public money, property or records. He was expected to make an initial appearance in Little Rock, Ark., and then be sent to Washington to face prosecution.
The arrests clearly implicated Trump supporters. Prosecutors charged the leader and founder of the Hawaii chapter of the far-right Proud Boys group, Nicholas Robert Ochs, with unlawful entry after he posted a picture on Twitter from the Capitol and told a CNN reporter that he had gone inside.
The Proud Boys, whose name is tattooed on Mr. Ochs’s arm, have vocally supported Mr. Trump’s efforts to overturn the election results. “Some members have advocated for violent action to achieve these ends,” an F.B.I. agent said in court documents.
Yeah, the entirety of Proud Boys is finally going to get shut down completely, probably using RICO. I’ve been saying that was coming forever, and now they’ve finally got their excuse for it.
Sadly, the feds can’t find the only person who did actual terrorism. Just by pure coincidence, he’s the only one they can’t find.
The federal authorities were still working to identify and arrest the person who placed a pair of explosive devices near the Capitol and offered a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a person seen in a hoodie and pulling a bag.
A pair of pipe bombs found on Wednesday afternoon outside the Democratic and Republican Party headquarters, blocks from the Capitol, contained crude mechanical timing devices, according to an official familiar with their initial examination, suggesting they were intended to be detonated. It was not clear when they were meant to explode.
The two bombs appeared to be similar, the official said. They were relatively unsophisticated and incorporated a mechanical timer, steel wool and an unknown powder as their explosive fill, the official said. One of the devices was found with a cellphone, which could have been incorporated to detonate the bomb.
Bomb squad technicians disabled the devices, which were constructed of steel pipes that appear to be about one and a half inches in diameter and 12 inches long.
Pure coincidence – I assure you, goyim.
Never forget Officer Sick Nick, the ZOGbot traitor who bravely died defending a criminal and illegitimate government when someone hit him in the head with a fire extinguisher like in a Warner Brothers cartoon.
Also, everyone needs to give thoughts and prayers for the cop who was forced to murder Ashli Babbitt when she threatened him by waving an American flag around.
Back the blue, lads.
But Seriously: DO NOT TALK TO THE POLICE
The feds are more than likely going to come to your house, if you were involved in any of this, on any level.
You cannot talk to them. Do not talk to them. You do not benefit from talking to them. Ask if you are being detained, then if they say “no we just want to talk,” shut the door in their faces, or walk away, depending on where it is.
If they say you’re being detained, say: “I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY WITHOUT A LAWYER PRESENT.”
Let them arrest you. If they were going to arrest you, they were going to arrest you either way. You’re not going to talk yourself out of an arrest. I promise you this: you are not going to talk yourself out of an arrest.
Look at everything that I have told you, all of the times I have been right about everything, and understand this is the most important thing I’ve ever told you: DO NOT TALK TO THE POLICE.
Watch this video, then watch it again, then just keep watching it, over and over again.
This isn’t a game and what you do when the feds show up could make the difference between whether you walk free or spend a decade in feds.
If they detain you, and send in some nice cop to say “we just want to figure this out, we don’t think you did anything” – DO NOT TALK TO THEM. DO NOT SAY A SINGLE WORD OTHER THAN “L A W Y E R.”
YOU WILL NEVER REGRET FOLLOWING THIS ADVICE.
