Michael Sherwin

Federal prosecutor Michael Sherwin said at a press conference moments ago, about the pro-Trump rioters who invaded the US Capitol last week: “We’re looking at significant felony cases tied to sedition and conspiracy”, charges that have prison terms of up to 20 years.

Steven D’Antuono from the Washington field office of the FBI accompanied Sherwin, the acting US attorney for the District of Columbia, at the first federal government press conference on the security failures that allowed for the Capitol breach since it happened on 6 January as both chambers of Congress were packed with lawmakers debating the certification of Joe Biden’s victory over Donald Trump in November’s election.

“If you were there at the US Capitol, agents will be knocking on your door. Now is your chance to come forward,” Antuono said.

He described the 160 to 170 criminal cases currently open against rioters as “the tip of the iceberg”.
