Federal prosecutors cite 'unmatched' range of crimes suspected in attack on Capitol

Guardian, 13 Jan 2021
The acting US attorney for the District of Columbia, Michael Sherwin, has indicated that many amid the hundreds of pro-Trump rioters who violently invaded the US Capitol last Wednesday are suspected in a “mind-blowing” range of crimes including felony murder and sedition and conspiracy.
At a press conference in Washington, prosecutors said there are at least 160 federal criminal cases open and they are ready to track down individuals across the country and apprehend them wherever possible – potentially arresting hundreds if not thousands of people.
'The range of criminal conduct was unmatched,' Sherwin said. He warned lawbreakers: 'You will be charged and you will be found'
