Filing False Crumpets:
It seems excessive to keep bumping the original thread, so I'm making a new one for any news on arrests, investigations, and court cases related to January 6th. I think we'd all prefer one thread to a new thread for every update while also not making the original thread hundreds of pages long.

Some recent updates:

Also from Los Angeles Daily News: Former congressman Dana Rohrabacher breached Capitol police barricades on Jan. 6


Newly released footage from the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol shows former Orange County Congressman Dana Rohrabacher joined a crowd that crossed police barricades, making him the highest profile politician known to be on the ground that day.

Rohrabacher is not among the 500-plus people who’ve been charged with crimes connected to Jan. 6, and there’s no evidence he entered the Capitol building or participated in any of the violence that unfolded.

He didn’t respond to requests to speak for this story, though he told the Press Herald in Maine that he marched peacefully Jan. 6 and “was not there to make a scene and do things that were unacceptable for anyone to do.”

But online critics also are pointing to a speech Rohrabacher gave during a “Stop the Steal” rally in Huntington Beach a few weeks before the insurrection, where he referenced the Revolutionary War and told the cheering crowd that “Communists” were trying to “take control of our government.”

‘This is your crisis, patriots,” he said in video posted to his Facebook page. “…It’s all up to us.”

As I mentioned in the other thread, Scott MacFarlane (https://twitter.com/MacFarlaneNews) is the person to follow for progress of the various court cases.

Mr.Barkari Sellers:
I have buyers remorse on Merrick Garland, I said that Doug Jones whom was a US Attorney should of been the FBI Director, he knows Congress and wouldn't defend Trump

I was right about Merrick Garland, he is no different than Mueller

Daily Beast: ‘Vanilla Kind of Guy’: Lawyer Roasts Capitol Rioter in Bid to Keep Him From Jail


Russell Taylor, a 40-year-old from Ladera Ranch, is among six men federally indicted last week on a slew of charges, including conspiracy, for their role in the Capitol riot. Prosecutors allege the group, which contained at least four Three Percenters militia group members, arrived in D.C. armed with weapons, bear spray, and two-way radios in preparation for the siege.


Prosecutors argue Taylor joined a “mob of protesters” to attack law enforcement officers attempting to secure the Capitol—while armed with a knife—and he should be kept in pre-trial detention.

But his defense team had a different theory on Tuesday: the family man simply had too much time on his hands during the coronavirus pandemic and acted out.

“He’s kind of boring, this is probably the most exciting thing that’ll happen in his life,” Taylor’s lawyer, Dyke Huish, said during a Tuesday detention hearing. “Really he’s kind of a vanilla kind of guy—though admittedly he was upset about the masks.”

Huish describing his client as “moderately successful,” and a religious man who doesn’t drink and went to Brigham Young University. He insisted that Taylor’s actions during the insurrection were unique and spurred by his anger over the state-wide lockdown and mask mandate. He denied that Taylor is a militiaman—just that his documented violent actions were misunderstood.
