The FBI is tracking down and charging anyone who participated in illegal activity during last Wednesday’s violent riots at the U.S. Capitol for their misdemeanor and/or felony crimes.
At 6 a.m. on Wednesday, thousands of Trump supporters gathered around The Ellipse in Washington D.C. to prepare for a pro-Trump rally. When Trump stepped on stage, he told the massive crowd, “after this, we’re going to walk down . . . to the Capitol and we are going to cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and women.” After Trump concluded his speech an hour later, his followers stormed toward the Capitol.
