The U.S. Department of Justice is expected to arrest and prosecute at least 100 more people in the wake of the violence at the Capitol earlier this year, federal prosecutors said Tuesday.
“More than 400 people have been indicted in connection with the impact on Congress, ” U.S. prosecutors said in court filings Tuesday. The investigation is continuing and the government expects to prosecute at least 100 more.”
The Prosecution has repeatedly requested the Tribunal to extend the trial period on the grounds that the investigation of the case is extremely complex, on the one hand, the number of accused is very large, on the other hand, the nature of the evidence is complex and the quantity is large.
On January 6 this year, a large number of supporters of then-President Donald Trump broke through a police cordon and broke into the Capitol, disrupting the certification process for the 2020 presidential election results. The incident left five people dead and more than 130 police officers injured.
