NOW: 6 days after the insurrection, the FBI says it’s ready to prove a “quick” update.
Here goes with updates from FBI:
•160 cases files have been opened
•100,000 digital media tips have been received
•they FBI admits they had intelligence warning of an attack
•FBI says an arrest the night before the Capitol attack indicates they took action
@AndyTriay has previously reported: FBI “disrupted” a number of individuals from traveling to DC. Which means they were urged not to come – or somehow stopped.
•FBI says there will be hundreds of criminal cases against suspects at the Capitol and prosecuting them could take months
•the acting D.C. U.S. attorney says most investigations were opened on misdemeanor charges but now the feds will indict those people on federal felonies
BREAKING: The acting U.S. Attorney in Washington D.C. says he’s ordered prosecutors to build cases to charge Americans who stormed the Capitol with sedition & conspiracy, if the evidence warrants charges against them depending on how they were involved.
NOW: Acting U.S. Attorney in D.C. says charges will also be brought against people who attacked members of the media.
FBI says it’s actively looking at whether to place suspects, already charged in last weeks attack, on a no fly list.
NOW: U.S. Attorney in D.C. says the pipe bombs placed at the @GOP and @DNC last week were REAL.
They had “Explosive igniters and timers...We don’t know why they didn’t go off”
Press conference over.
It took them 6 days to come out & say that. I get that things develop.
The American public deserved to hear from FBI the day of the attack, within hours of the attack.
It’s ridiculous how long it took to brief the American public & take questions.
The first few fmr FBI officials interviewed on CNN and asked by @BrookeBCNN about the press conference that just happened from the US attorney & FBI all basically said that press conference was a failure and an attempt to defend itself rather than to inform & ensure confidence
PS: where was Christopher Wray, the FBI Director? Why wasn’t he at this news conference to take questions and show a presence as the head of the FBI.

BREAKING: The FBI has arrested Jenny Cudd, reports @CBS7News. She recorded a video inside the Capitol saying they didn’t vandalize anything, then said they did break down @SpeakerPelosi’s door & steal her gavel. Cudd’s a fmr. Midland, TX. mayoral candidate
You have to watch this.
Last Friday, Jenny Cudd said she did nothing wrong - nothing wrong with her walking into the Capitol, she said, and she surmised that was probably why the FBI had not contacted her “yet”...until today.
You have to hear her say it.
