The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) is listing all of the individuals currently facing federal charges in connection with the deadly Jan. 6 attack on the nation’s Capitol.

As of Friday, a total of 46 individuals have been federally charged with offenses related to the violent insurrection that occurred in Washington on Jan. 6, which left five people dead. Offenses include, but are not limited to: entering restricted grounds, carrying a firearm on Capitol grounds, possession of a destructive device, damaging or destroying government property and more.

The DOJ lists each arrestee’s name, state of residence, charges against them and the status of their case.

Arrests and charges continue to be made as federal agencies continue their investigation after pro-Trump rioters -- some armed -- stormed and looted Capitol buildings while Congress members were meeting, forcing lawmakers to flee to a secure location. In recent court filings, federal prosecutors say members of the pro-Trump mob aimed to “capture and assassinate elected officials.”

On Jan. 8, the DOJ announced that 13 individuals had been federally charged in connection with the attack so far, and about 40 others were facing charges in Superior Court. It is likely that more individuals have been charged in Superior Court since then, but the Justice Department does not list those charges on their website.

The cases of those charged federally are being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia.

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has warned that more protests are planned in all 50 states leading up to President-elect Joe Biden’s Jan. 20 inauguration. In Michigan, six-foot fences have also been constructed around the Capitol Building in Lansing in an effort to prevent demonstrators from storming the building.
