Justice Has Arrested 950 Capitol Protesters, Sniffing Around For More

  • Almost two years after the January 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol, the sprawling federal investigation into the riot continues at an “unprecedented speed and scale,” with more than 950 people arrested, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland said Wednesday.
  • That number represents less than half of an estimated 2,000 to 2,500 supporters of former President Donald Trump believed to have breached the Capitol as lawmakers met to certify the results of the 2020 presidential election.
