January 18 Reuters quoted the U.S. Department of Justice on the 17th that the police have arrested an official from New Mexico on suspicion of participating in the attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6.
The man had threatened to march to Washington to protest against Biden’s oath of office.
According to documents posted on the website of the U.S. Department of Justice, the suspect is named Cuoy Griffin, an official in Ottero County, New Mexico and the founder of the Cowboy Trump organization.
Griffin was one of the thousands who stormed the Capitol. He stood on the steps of the building at the time of the accident, but did not enter.
Griffin reportedly returned to New Mexico after the riots. Griffin said to the Otero County Council that he planned to drive to Washington with his rifle and revolver.
He also said via social media that he had planned to act at Biden’s inauguration on the 20th.” If we do that, it will be a sad day, because the building will be full of blood.
So far, federal prosecutors have filed criminal proceedings against more than 100 people in response to the January 6 congressional riots.
These people rushed into the Capitol, ransacked offices, and attacked the police, killing five people, including one policeman.
Investigators are currently searching for more than 140,000 videos and photos related to the riot.
It is reported that the U.S. police arrested another 10 people, including Chad Barrett Jones of Kentucky, on the 16th and 17th. Jones was photographed trying to damage the glass door panels of the House with wooden flagpole.
Another cousins are Daniel Adams from Texas and Cody Cornell from Louisiana, who are accused of attacking federal officials.
