“Capitol grounds outside and inside ...essentially a crime scene and on a scale in which we have a literally thousands of potential witnesses.. in which we are going to have hundreds of criminal cases. “
“This is not gonna be solved overnight ...this is gonna be a long term investigation and rest assured the bureau the department just as all the USAO’s across United States that are assisting these investigations everyone is in for the long-haul”
“The numbers are going to increase so as we sit here now literally days after this event happened:
we have already opened 170+ subject files - meaning these individuals have been identified as potential persons that committed crimes...”
“And I anticipate that’s going to grow to the hundreds in the next coming weeks”

...already charged over 70 cases
The range of criminal conduct:
looking at everything
simple trespass
theft of mail
theft of digital devices inside the capital
assault on local &federal officers both outside and inside the capital
theft a potential of natsec/defense info
felony murder
They want to charge people as soon as possible

“we look for the most simple charge we could file is quick as possible “ & build on them
“This is only the beginning”
so after these criminal charges are filed via criminal complaint, that allows lawn LE across the US to arrest people from Dallas to Arkansas to Nashville to Cleveland to Jacksonville that’s what’s happened over the past several days”
‘..after those charges are filed they have the ability to then charge these individuals w more significant charges and that’s exactly what has happened for example yesterday’
“So again I just wanna clarify that the initial charges were filing is is some of these misdemeanors these are only the beginning ...this is not the end”
🔥“we’re looking at significant felony cases tied to sedition and conspiracy”

A strike force was organized yesterday their only marching orders from me... to build seditious and conspiracy charges related to the most heinous acts that occurred in the capital”
“we’re gonna focus on the most significant charges as a deterrent because regardless of if it was just a trespass on the capital or someone planted a pipe bomb ..
🔥 you will be charged
you will be found”
“also ...we set up a strike force to focus on assault on the media some people aren’t familiar that some of those rioters specifically targeted members of the media and assaulted them, so we have assigned specific prosecutors in our office to focus on those cases”

DEC 8, 2020: a foreign account made a simultaneous transfer of 28.15 bitcoins — worth $500,000+ at the time — to 22 different virtual wallets, most belonging to prominent right-wing orgs & personalities news.yahoo.com/exclusive-larg…
“I’d be stunned if both nation-state adversaries & terrorist orgs weren’t figuring out how to funnel money to these guys..Many of them use fundraising sites..that are virtually unmonitored & unmonitorable. If they weren’t doing it, they’d be incompetent.” fmr FBI official
cryptocurrency researchers believe they know who made the transfer, and suspect it was intended to bolster those far-right causes.

John Horgan, a Georgia State University professor and the director of the Violent Extremism Research Group, has never been more worried.
“You had your gawkers..tourists...instigators, your preachers. ..you had your guys in military fatigues who ...came with a plan. They were organized & they were looking to get their chance at infamy.

Those are the kinds that I think about between now and Jan. 20.”
“It’s a rallying cry.

I’m not worried about the people that were caught up in these arrests.

I’m not worried about the people that were at the protest.

I’m worried about the Timothy McVeighs who are out there now realizing that their time has come.”

“Every person I've ever known about that's been a white supremacist has left the movement through an act of compassion or love. They didn't leave it bc someone convinced them their belief systems were wrong.” nbcnews.com/politics/polit…
Daryl sounded the alarm back in 2009. His report was politicized by the GOP. He warned that white supremacy was on the rise.

He knows of what he speaks.

I strongly advise reading Hateland by Daryl Johnson & Breaking Hate by @cpicciolini to understand
