Shanlon Wu, a former federal prosecutor, was a guest on 89.3 KPCC Air Talk where he discussed the federal investigation of and charges for the Capitol insurrection.
The FBI’s investigation into the January 6th Capitol attack is evolving as investigators move toward building cases alleging that some of the rioters carefully planned the attack.
Authorities are working through evidence that includes hundreds of thousands of digital tips on social media, news and surveillance footage, tips from the public as well as nonpublic evidence taken from search warrants and grand jury subpoenas. 150 people have already been charged with federal crimes for their involvement with the Capitol insurrection, though officials expect arrests to slow as they move their investigation into motive.
