The U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, Matthew Graves, hinted that his office will target thousands of individuals who were present outside the Capitol Building on January 6, 2021.
Graves’ office has already brought charges against over 1,400 individuals for offenses related to January 6, resulting in more than 900 convictions that typically involve inappropriately long prison sentences. This is a stark contrast to the 2020 George Floyd riots, as Graves himself admitted that most of the individuals who stormed the White House and attacked Secret Service agents have not faced any charges.
During a press conference earlier this week, Graves hinted that his office is ready to go after individuals who were present outside the building or on Capitol grounds. He stated, “An important note when it comes to our prosecutions about those who remained outside the building. We have used our prosecutorial discretion to primarily focus on those who entered the building or those who engaged in violent or corrupt conduct on Capitol grounds.”
He added, “But if a person knowingly entered the restricted area without authorization, they had already committed a federal crime. Make no mistake, thousands of people occupied an area that they were not authorized to be present in in the first place.”

Journalist Julie Kelly shared her perspetive on Biden’s recent unhinged speech concerning the events of January 6th:
Part of me is gratified by this maniacal speech.
Why? Because it proves we are prevailing over the J6 narrative. Biden, Matthew Graves, Merrick Garland, celeb J6 cops–their stunts over the past few days show they are LOSING control over Jan 6–a fedsurrection they thought for sure would not just take out Trump but the entire MAGA movement.
They thought it would end the GOP and result in mass defections to the Democratic Party. They thought it would end questions about the 2020 election.
They didn’t think anyone would ever question what happened, how it happened, or expose the lies it was built upon. They thought their dirty secrets would be hidden forever.
But it’s all collapsing right when they need the narrative to hold most. Jack Smith’s J6 prosecution of Trump is teetering. SCOTUS could overturn the most common felony count.
Polls show more people now vs 2021 think the 2020 election was illegitimate. They don’t blame Trump (aside from nearly 100 percent of Democrats) for January 6.
The public, according to WashPo poll, is split as to whether Jan 6 was mostly peaceful or violent.
And suspicion about the animating role of the FBI and other government agencies continues to grow.
That’s why Biden is ranting and raving and cheering the imprisonment of political dissidents and denouncing truth seekers and pretending he’s George Washington at Valley Forge.
