The United States Department of Justice announced today a federal grand jury in the District of Columbia has returned an indictment charging a Hawaii man who purports to have founded the Honolulu chapter of the Proud Boys and a Texas man with conspiring to obstruct the United States Congress’ certification of the results of the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election, as well as other crimes they committed to achieve that goal. Together, and with others, the two men planned and raised money for their effort, and then traveled to Washington, D.C., where they joined a crowd that stormed past barricades and law enforcement officers to halt a Joint Session of the U.S. Congress on January 6.

Meanwhile, hundreds of national guard members continue to protect the United States Capitol building, one week after it was storming by a riot mob of pro-Trump extremists.

Reports of over 10,000 members of the national guard have been deployed to Washington D.C. as the FBI warned far-right groups were continuing to threaten plots before Joe Biden’s inauguration as President of the United States of America schedule to be held on Thursday, January 21st, 2021.

General Daniel Hokanson, the chief of the National Guard Bureau, has said the guard plans to have up to 10,000 troops present, with the possibility of an additional increase of up to 15,000 in D.C. to meet current and future requests for the inauguration.

National Guard Soldiers and Airmen from several states have traveled to the National Capital Region to provide support to federal and district authorities leading up to the 59th Presidential Inauguration. I joined Senior Enlisted Advisor Tony Whitehead; CSM John Sampa, command sergeant major of the Army Guard; and Air Force CMSgt. Maurice Williams, command chief master sergeant of the Air Guard to visit with our troops on duty on Capitol Hill & at the D.C. Armory last night,” General Daniel Hokanson said via Twitter.

According to Acting U.S. Capitol Police Chief Yogananda Pittman, there will be no public access to the United States Capitol grounds during the inauguration.

Chief Yogananda Pittman said the Capitol Police are engaged with law enforcement partners on the federal, state and local levels on security for Inauguration Day.

We have comprehensive, coordinated plans in place to ensure the safety and security of the congressional community and the upcoming presidential inauguration,” said Chief Yogananda Pittman.

According to the National Park Service, the Washington Monument is also closed to tours due to “credible threats to visitors and park resources” surrounding Biden’s inauguration.

The Washington Monument will remain closed through Sunday, January 24th, 2021.

The National Park Service says that it might also temporarily block public access to roadways, parking areas and restrooms on the National Mall “if conditions warrant, to protect public safety and park resources.”

United States President Donald Trump granted a State of Emergency for Washington, D.C., from Monday through Sunday, January 24th, 2021 after Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser requested the declaration.

Federal assistance is also being provided to supplement the city’s response efforts during Inauguration Day.

Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser also asked the Department of the Interior to cancel or deny permits for demonstrations through Sunday, January 24th, 2021 as well as asked the United States Department of Justice to provide daily intelligence and threat briefings to Washington, D.C. authorities.

Authorities in states across America are also preparing for any problems related to Joe Biden’s inauguration, including stepping up security as state capitol buildings and setting up barricades.

Travelers who are planning to board flights to Washington, D.C., ahead of the inauguration will not be allowed to check firearms on several airlines.

Delta Air Lines, Alaska Airlines, United Airlines and American Airlines has recently announced that they will not be allowed passengers traveling to Washington, D.C. to check firearms on their flights, only law enforcement officials and active duty military traveling on orders would be exempt from the ban.

All major airlines stepped up security precautions on flights leaving Washington D.C. last weekend after the storming of the United States Capitol and incidents on Washington, D.C.-bound flights leading up to it.

In addition to banning firearms, Seattle-based Alaska said it also plans to reduce the number of tickets sold on flights to and from the D.C. metro area to support law enforcement calls to avoid travel to the area. It will require all passengers on flights to and from metro D.C. to remain in their seats for an hour after takeoff and during landing.

The United States Department of Justice said that as of Friday, thirteen individuals have been charged so far in federal court in the District of Columbia related to crimes committed at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C, on Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2021.

In addition to those who have been charged, additional complaints have been submitted and investigations are ongoing.

The lawless destruction of the U.S. Capitol building was an attack against one of our Nation’s greatest institutions. My Office, along with our law enforcement partners at all levels, have been expeditiously working and leveraging every resource to identify, arrest, and begin prosecuting these individuals who took part in the brazen criminal acts at the U.S. Capitol. We are resolute in our commitment to holding accountable anyone responsible for these disgraceful criminal acts, and to anyone who might be considering engaging in or inciting violence in the coming weeks – know this: you will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Michael Sherwin.

ATF is committed to the rule of law and the protection of all citizens’ Constitutional rights. We continue to support our law enforcement partners to ensure those who violated the law during the events at the Capitol this week are brought to justice. ATF has dedicated all appropriate resources to complete these investigations as soon as possible,” said Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) Deputy Director Regina Lombardo.

Today’s charges are just the beginning of the FBI’s ongoing efforts to hold those responsible for the criminal acts of violence and destruction that unfolded during the U.S. Capitol building breach on January 6th. To be clear, what took place that day was not First Amendment-protected activity, but rather an affront on our democracy. The FBI, along with our local, state and federal partners, is committed to ensuring that justice is served. We will continue to aggressively investigate each and every individual who chose to ignore the law and instead incite violence, destroy property, and injure others,” said FBI Director Christopher Wray.

Deputy U.S. Marshals responded to support U.S. Capitol Police after the incursion into the Capitol building. Our deputies helped to clear the building and escorted members of Congress back to the main chamber for official business. US Marshals will now bring to bear our fugitive investigations expertise to ensure that individuals charged in federal warrants are brought to face justice. Respect for the rule of law is a foundational principle for our democracy and the freedoms that it provides. Unlawful acts will not go unpunished,” said U.S. Marshals Service Director Donald Washington.

The events that happened at and around the United States Capitol were unconscionable, and those responsible will be held accountable for their attempts to thwart Democracy. While these charges represent a positive step, there is still work to be done. Our collective intentions are to work diligently to identify all of the persons responsible for the insurrection at our U.S. Capitol,” said Metropolitan Police Department Chief of Police Robert J. Contee III.

The United States Department of Justice has release publicly the following identities of those who have been arrested and charged in the storming of the United States Capitol incident last Wednesday.

  • Jacob Anthony Chansley (Jake Angeli), Adam Johnson and Derrick Evans:

Jacob Anthony Chansley, a.k.a. Jake Angeli, of Arizona, who was photographed standing shirtless inside the United States Senate chamber, wearing a horned hat with a painted face during the storming of the United States Capitol, was taken into custody on Saturday.

According to the United States Department of Justice, Jacob Anthony Chansley was “charged with knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, and with violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.”

The United States Department of Justice said, “It is alleged that Chansley was identified as the man seen in media coverage who entered the Capitol building dressed in horns, a bearskin headdress, red, white and blue face paint, shirtless, and tan pants. This individual carried a spear, approximately 6 feet in length, with an American flag tied just below the blade.

Adam Johnson, the man photographed smiling and waving while carrying House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s lectern during the storming of the United States Capitol, was arrested Friday night.

According to the United States Department of Justice, 36 year old Adam Johnson of Florida was “charged with one count of knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority; one count of theft of government property; and one count of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.

The United States Department of Justice said, “It is alleged that on Jan. 6, 2021, Johnson illegally entered the United States Capitol and removed the Speaker of the House’s lectern from where it had been stored on the House side of the Capitol building. A search of open sources led law enforcement to Johnson, who is allegedly seen in a widely circulated photo inside the Capitol carrying the lectern.

Derrick Evans, who live streamed himself during the storming of the United States Capitol, was taken into custody Friday.

According to the United States Department of Justice, 35 year old Derrick Evans of West Virginia was “charged with one count of knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority; and one count of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol Grounds.

The United States Department of Justice said, “It is alleged that on Jan. 6, 2021, Evans, a recently elected member of the West Virginia House of Delegates, streamed live to his Facebook page a video of himself joining and encouraging a crowd unlawfully entering the U.S. Capitol. In the video, Evans is allegedly seen crossing the threshold of the doorway into the U.S. Capitol and shouting, “We’re in, we’re in! Derrick Evans is in the Capitol!”

These cases are being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia and investigated by the FBI’s Washington Field Office and the United States Capitol Police.

According to the United States Department of Justice, the information contained in the charging documents are merely allegations, and the defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty.

Derrick Evans, an elected Republican member of the West Virginia House of Delegates, has recently announced that he has resigned from the West Virginia House of Delegates.

In a statement, Derrick Evans said, “The past few days have certainly been a difficult time for my family, colleagues and myself, so I feel it’s best at this point to resign my seat in the House and focus on my personal situation and those I love…I take full responsibility for my actions, and deeply regret any hurt, pain or embarrassment I may have caused my family, friends, constituents and fellow West Virginians. I hope this action I take today can remove any cloud of distraction from the state Legislature, so my colleagues can get to work in earnest building a brighter future for our state. And more importantly, I hope it helps to begin the healing process, so we can all move forward and come together as ‘One Nation, Under God.’”

  • Richard Barnett:

Richard Barnett, the man who was photographed sitting at a desk in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office following the storming of the United States Capitol, was arrested on Friday.

According to the United States Department of Justice, 60 year old Richard Barnett of Gravette, Arkansas was “arrested today in Bentonville, Arkansas on multiple criminal charges related to his alleged unlawful activities earlier this week at the U.S. Capitol Building where he was photographed with his feet up on a desk in the Speaker of the House of Representatives’ office.”

Richard Barnett is in custody is expected to make his initial appearance Tuesday at 3pm (via zoom) in federal court in Fayetteville, and will ultimately be extradited to Washington, D.C.

The shocking images of Mr. Barnett with his boots up on a desk in the Speaker of the House’s office on Wednesday was repulsive. Those who are proven to have committed criminal acts during the storming of the Capitol will face justice,” said Jeffrey A. Rosen, Acting Attorney General of the United States.

According to court documents, “U.S. Capitol Police learned that an individual had entered the restricted office area of the Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi and was photographed with his feet propped up on furniture. Those photos were circulated on numerous news media platforms which identified the individual as Barnett. A search of law enforcement databases confirmed that the individual in the news photographs did in fact appear to be Barnett.

This case is just one in a number that demonstrate the brazen acts that were committed at the Capitol on Wednesday. My Office is committed to prosecuting all individuals who participated in these abhorrent acts to the fullest extent of the law,” said Michael Sherwin, Acting U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia.

The U.S. Capitol is one of the most iconic buildings in our country and a symbol of the Constitution and people we have sworn to protect, and its destruction will not be tolerated. This arrest demonstrates to all individuals involved in January 6 incursion into the U.S. Capitol that the FBI will find you and hold you accountable for your crimes, no matter your location. We thank the FBI Little Rock Field Office for their quick assistance in bringing this perpetrator to justice,” said Steven M. D’Antuono, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI Washington Field Office.

Richard Barnett is charged with knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority; violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds; and theft of public money, property, or records.

If convicted, Richard Barnett faces a maximum penalty of one year in prison. Actual sentences for federal crimes are typically less than the maximum penalties.
