U.S. says Capitol rioters meant to 'capture and assassinate' officials

  • Jacob Anthony Chansley also known as Jake Angeli of Arizona stands with other supporters of US President Donald Trump as they demonstrate on the second floor of the US Capitol near the entrance to the Senate in Washingt

Her ruling came shortly after prosecutors in Arizona walked back sweeping statements they made just a day earlier in their memo seeking detention, claiming the government had "strong evidence" that the "intent of the Capitol rioters was to capture and assassinate elected officials in the United States government".

Sherwin said that his office is leading the prosecution effort, but as local offices help to run down suspects in their districts, there may have been a "disconnect" on the evidence obtained so far in the cases.

The filing indicates that after posing for a photo at the Senate dais last Wednesday, Chansley left a note for Vice President Mike Pence, who had been swept away to safety amid the attack, warning the vice president that "it's only a matter of time, justice is coming".

As of Friday morning, Michael Sherwin, acting U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, said his office had brought 98 criminal prosecutions so far and opened investigations into more than 275 people in connection with the Capitol riots, in which Mr Trump's supporters stormed the building, ransacked offices and in some cases, attacked police.

U.S. Attorney Michael Bailey and Assistant U.S. Attorney Kristen Brook in Arizona warned in a filing first reported by Reuters, that Chansley had expressed interest in returning to Washington, D.C. for President-Elect Biden's inauguration and "has the ability to do so if the Court releases him". The comments by acting USA attorney Michael Sherwin appeared to be an effort to walk back claims that federal prosecutors in Arizona had made in a court filing late on Thursday, in which they claimed there was evidence that rioters meant to, quote, "capture and assassinate elected officials".

That disturbing statement refers to the case of Arizona man and so-called "QAnon Shaman" Jacob Chansley - the bare-chested rioter with animal horns and face paint who stormed into the Capitol. The detention memo went into greater detail about the FBI's investigation into Chansley, revealing that he left a note for Vice President Mike Pence at his desk in the Senate chamber, warning, quote, "it's only a matter of time, justice is coming".

Sherwin's said his office, has brought 98 criminal prosecutions to date and has opened investigations into more than 275 people in connection with the Capitol riots, in which Trump supporters stormed the building, ransacked offices, and in some cases, attacked police.

The FBI is also looking for suspects in connection with the death of Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick.
