    Figured we should start a separate thread on the arrests and those involved in the storming of the Capitol. I know it has been talked about in the other thread a lot, but for the ones who just want to follow the ones arrested and/or charged, this will be an easier way to see updates on the investigations.

    Link below is everyone who has been arrested. But we know there will be more.

    The website seems to be updated with new information daily.

    The ones who are getting the most air time:

    Jake Angeli

    Adam Johnson

    Richard Barnett

    Kevin Seefried

    Eric Gavelek Munchel

    ELENA, Mont. (AP) — A Montana appliance store owner and supporter of former President Donald Trump was convicted Wednesday for his role in the Jan. 6, 2021, breach of the U.S. Capitol that interrupted certifying the 2020 Electoral College vote.

    The U.S. Attorney's Office in Montana announced the verdict.

    Henry Phillip Muntzer of Dillon was arrested based on social media posts and videos taken inside the Capitol, according to court records.

    Muntzer, 55, was found guilty of obstructing an official proceeding and civil disorder, both felonies, following a bench trial before U.S. District Court Judge Jia M. Cobb. Muntzer was also found guilty of four misdemeanor charges. Sentencing is set for June 20.

    Prosecutors presented evidence that Muntzer and a group of friends traveled to Washington to attend the “Stop the Steal" rally. After Trump's speech at the Ellipse, Muntzer joined the crowd walking to the Capitol, where he spent about 38 minutes, including time on the Senate floor. He was among the last people to leave, according to court records.

    Muntzer was involved in physical confrontations with law enforcement officers in the Senate chamber and in the Capitol Rotunda, prosecutors said...........

    The federal court in Washington, D.C. has been pushing back against conspiracy theories that are still circulating about Jan. 6.

    Judges in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia are confronting claims by Jan. 6 defendants and their supporters and are being more outspoken when it comes to countering the claims, which include the labeling of Jan. 6 defendants as "hostages," or claims that the Capitol riot was sparked by government informants.

    One of those judges is Royce Lamberth, who declared during a sentencing hearing for a Jan. 6 defendant that the court "is accustomed to defendants who refuse to accept that they did anything wrong."

    "But in my 37 years on the bench, I cannot recall a time when such meritless justifications of criminal activity have gone mainstream," Lamberth said.

    "I have been dismayed to see outright distortions and outright falsehoods creep into the public consciousness," Lamberth continued. "I have been shocked to watch some public figures try to rewrite history, claiming rioters behaved in an orderly fashion like ordinary tourists, or martyrizing convicted Jan. 6 defendants as political prisoners or even, incredibly, hostages. That is all preposterous."

    At another sentencing hearing last month, Judge Ana Reyes slammed rioters who compared themselves to America's Founding Fathers.

    "I feel the need to give everyone a certain history lesson. Because there are people who believe and continue to believe that the election was stolen and that it is in the best tradition of our American Founding Fathers to rebel against tyranny," she said.

    "I suggest that you read President Washington's farewell address. Because in it he warned Americans to 'guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism.' And he warned, 'There will always be reasons to distrust the patriotism who in any quarter may endeavor to weaken the bonds of our democratic experiment,'" Reyes continued............
