DOJ Planning HUNDREDS More Jan 6 Prosecutions

Rumors have it that even more January 6th prosecutions are to come. Federal prosecutors apparently are contemplating placing charges against more than 1,000 individuals who allegedly participated in the protests on January 6th, 2021 at the Capitol.

Bloomberg News is reporting that the United States Attorney in Washington has sent a letter this week to the chief justice of DC’s federal court system. The letter stated that prosecutors overseen by US Attorney General Merrick Garland could bring between 700 and 1,200 new individuals into custody.

A staggering set of numbers! This many people charged would represent double the number of prosecutions already sought in connection with those who entered the capital building on January 6th in protest of a seemingly unfair election process.

US Attorney Matthew Graves wrote in his letter that the Department of Justice expects to bring these new cases forward in the next few months. Graves wrote that it was “incredibly difficult” to predict future cases given the “nature and the complexity of the investigation.”

As of today, more than 1,000 individuals have already been charged in the January 6th investigation. An investigation that recently was exposed of withholding pertinent evidence that would clear American citizens of charges that their own Government has taken against them. Over 500 Americans have already gone to court. The average sentence for those convicted has been around 18 months.

When House Speaker Kevin McCarthy took office earlier this year he fulfilled his promise to release 44,000 hours of January 6th surveillance footage to the public. Tucker Carlson of Fox News has devoted significant air time to the newly released footage. The publication of the new footage has raised significant questions over the validity of the narrative pushed out by media and politicians alike after the protest event.
