On Jan. 6, a violent mob entered the United States Capitol Building during the congressional certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, forcing lawmakers and congressional staff to flee to safe locations. The rioters arrived at the Capitol Building following a rally on the National Mall where speakers and demonstrated urged Congress to not certify Biden’s win in the presidential race due to baseless claims of voter fraud and irregularities. After law enforcement cleared the mob out of the Capitol, Congress certified President-elect Biden’s victory. Arrests related to the breach of the Capitol are ongoing. 

Here, we are compiling links to charging documents related to the Jan. 6 riot on Capitol Hill. Our list includes cases in both the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia and the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. As of Jan. 12, this document also contains charges relating to the inauguration in a separate section. This article will be continually updated.

Jan. 6 Violence on Capitol Hill

In total, this database has documents for 119 individuals charged in relation to the violence on Capitol Hill. Of those individuals, there are 84 federal cases and 27 cases in the D.C. Superior Court. The majority of federal counts are for illegal entry and activity on Capitol Hill designated grounds. Some federal charges include civil disorder, theft, assault (including assaulting a federal officer), making interstate threats, damage of government property, obstructing law enforcement and possession of firearms. Almost all D.C. Superior Court counts are for violating a city-wide curfew at or around the Capitol grounds on Jan. 6 as well as one count for possession of a prohibited weapon and one count for assaulting a police officer. On Jan. 13, the Department of Justice released a database for “Investigations Regarding Violence at the Capitol” that includes press releases, charging documents, case status and the residency of each individual charged.
