A pro-Trump mob descended on the Capitol on January 6, 2021, and hundreds face criminal charges.
It took four hours to secure the building so Congress could certify President Joe Biden's victory.
More than two years later, at least 978 people have been charged. This searchable table shows them all.
Since supporters of then-President Donald Trump swarmed the US Capitol on January 6, 2021 — forcing Congress to go into lockdown and damaging the halls of government — at least 978 people have been arrested and charged with crimes.
But since most rioters were allowed to walk free that day, it's taking time to track them down.
This table includes the names, charges, links to court documents, and links to additional stories of all the people charged so far. We're keeping it updated as the Department of Justice releases more names and info.
Only 475 federally charged rioters have entered guilty pleas so far.
The number of people charged in the insurrection has grown as FBI agents pore through video footage, social media posts, phone location data, and tips from the public.
A House of Representatives committee has also been investigating the riot, and recommended 4 charges against Trump
Democratic members of Congress pushed for a bipartisan commission to investigate the Capitol riot akin to the one made post-9/11, but Senate Republicans blocked the attempt.
The House of Representatives narrowly voted to create a commission on June 30, 2021. Reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger are the only Republicans on the panel. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said the Republican Party would create its own investigation.
The House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol interviewed hundreds of people, issued dozens of subpoenas, and sorted through thousands of documents relating to the riots. The committee also held 10 public hearings to showcase its findings from June 9 until December 19, 2022.
On Monday, the committee formally recommended four charges against Trump: conspiracy to defraud the US, conspiracy to make false statements, obstruction of an official proceeding, and inciting an insurrection.
The referral doesn't carry any legal weight, and the Justice Department doesn't have to bring charges because of it.
