FBI Releases Pictures of Wanted Trump Rioters
FBI is asking for help in apprehending these 40 suspects
Two days after the attack on the US Capitol, there are still many unanswered questions as well as a national search for the perpetrators. Some, like Richard Barnett, the man seen sitting in Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office, has been arrested but many are still on the lam, including the people involved in the murder of Officer Brian Sicknick.
Others who have been arrested include Lonnie Coffman of Alabama. According to assistant US Attorney Ken Kohl, he was found to be possessing 11 Molotov cocktails that contained “not only gasoline but Styrofoam,” which amounts to “homemade napalm.” He was also charged with possession of two handguns and an assault rifle. It is illegal to carry guns in the District without a DC gun permit. West Virginia politician Derrick Evans was also arrested and charged with unlawfully entering restricted areas of the Capitol during the assault.
To help find those people who took part in the attack, the FBI is asking for the public’s help. First, they are asking for anyone with information on the people who were involved in the attack to please contact the FBI. You can submit your information here. Second, there is currently a nationwide manhunt for some of the suspects. The DC Metro Police and the FBI have published the following wanted posters for the criminals involved in the attack. You can see the FBI photos below.
These criminals could face a host of charges including entering and remaining on restricted grounds, violent entry, theft of public property, destruction of property, assault, and potentially murder charges for the people involved in the killing of Officer Sicknick. Thanks to a Trump Executive Order that was signed during the Black Lives Matter Protests, rioters who were caught on camera doing things like breaking windows could face ten years in jail for "injury of federal property."
The FBI is also offering a reward of up to $50,000 for information about who placed the two pipe bombs in Washington. The bombs were found on Wednesday night and Thursday morning at the offices of the Republican and Democratic National Committees which are located just a few blocks from the Capitol.
