Chuck's Iverson, ABC News and there are a lot of moving parts tonight in the U. S. Capitol. We will keep an eye on everything right here on WBC news radio. So be sure to stay with us at seven a one the FBI today saying it's notified other law enforcement agencies and you'd including the Capitol police. The day before the deadly siege at the Capitol about an online message. That message talked about a war and storming the Capitol building. Like what unfolded last week, the FBI's Stephen Guantanamo, says it was passed on through the Joint Terrorism Task Force system and to his knowledge did yield results of some intelligence that a number of individuals were planning to travel. The D. C area with intentions to cause violence. We immediately shared that information and action was taken as demonstrated by the arrest of a Rica Torrio by the Metropolitan East Department the night before the rally here in Massachusetts attorney General Rather I should, say U. S Attorney Andrew Leveling says no charges are in line yet for any Massachusetts resident who was involved in the capital Ryan. No, no one's been charged federally in connection with the activity in D. C. We have a flood of incoming information for which have assigned a coordinator to sift through it. We have several active leads, but whether any of them turning chargeable cases is too soon to tell, and the FBI and state police said they are not aware of any planned armed protests at the four state capitals they cover, including Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Massachusetts is say they're in constant communication with local and federal agencies, and they plan to monitor intelligence in the coming days to make sure they're prepared for whatever happens..

"Investigating leads not only here in the D C area but also across the country through the FBI's 56 field offices. So even like I've said before, so even if you've left D c Agents from our local field offices. We knocking on your door. If we find out that you were part of the criminal activity at the Capitol Before we do this. This is your opportunity to come forward. Several individuals who have were involved in Wednesday's rights have done. Volunteer. About their participation. In the weeks leading up to the jail is six rally. The FBI worked internally with every FBI field office to ensure they were looking for that we were looking for any intelligence that may have developed about potential violence during the rally on Jerry Away six. We developed some intelligence that a number of individuals were planning to travel to the D. C area with intentions to cause violence. He immediately shared that information and action was taken. As demonstrated by the arrest of a Rica Torrio but the Metropole Police Department the night before the rally. Other individuals were identified in other parts of the country in the travel subsequently disrupted The FBI receives enormous amounts of information intelligence. And our job is to determine the credibility of viability of it. Under the laws and policies that govern FBI investigations. We have to separate the aspirational from the intentional and determine which of the individuals saying despicable things on the Internet. Just practicing keyboard bravado, but they actually have the intent to do harm. In the latter. We worked diligently to identify them and prevent them from doing so. As offensive as a statement can be. The FBI cannot open an investigation without a threat of violence or alleged criminal activity. However. When that language does turn to a call of violence or criminal activity, the FBI is able to undertake investigative active action and in this case, we had no indication information was linked to any specific person. This is a matter of an online discussion. This information was immediately disseminated through rim product and brief through our command post operations to all levels of law enforcement. Part in parcel of our investigation into violent actors is the fact that we continue to gather intelligence that will aid in our ability to disrupt possible future violent activity. Suffices to say We're leveraging our relationships with federal, state and local law enforcement partners, using our tools at our disposal to find and bring everyone involved in last week's criminal activity. To justice. I mean, I got turned over toe acting U. S attorney, Michael sure. All right. Thank you, Steve. That was the assistant director and few days just to begin this I think the scope and scale of this investigation in these cases are really unprecedented not only in FBI history but probably DOJ history in which essentially the capital. Grounds outside and inside are essentially a crime scene. And scale in which we have literally thousands of potential witnesses and a scenario in which we're going to have. I believe hundreds of criminal cases both filed with our local courts of Superior Court and through the federal court system, so just to frame things, the enormity of this investigation is going to take a lot of work in a lot of effort, and this is not gonna be solved overnight. It's not gonna be solved within the coming weeks. It's not gonna be solved within the coming months. This is gonna be a long term investigation and rest assured the bureau the Department of Justice, all the U. S attorney's across the United States that are assisting these investigations. Everyone is in for the long haul. So that being said, Let's turn to the numbers that Steve referenced and the numbers are going to geometrically increase. So as we sit here now, literally days after this event happened, we have already opened 170 more than 170 subject files, meaning These individuals have been identified as potential persons that committed crimes on the Capitol grounds inside and outside. So of those 170 cases that have already been opened, and I anticipate that's going to grow to the hundreds and the next coming weeks. We've already charged over 70 cases and again, that number I suspect is going to grow into the hundreds. So what are the types of cases we initially charged and I think there's some misconceptions that I want to clarify some of those misconceptions because given the enormity of the actors we saw both inside and outside the capital. The range of criminal conduct is really I think again unmatched in any type of scenario that we've seen the FBI or the DOJ. We're looking at everything from simple trespass to theft of mail to theft of digital devices with inside the Capitol to assault on local officers, federal officers both outside and inside the Capitol. To the theft of potential national security information or national defense, information to felony murder and even civil rights. Excessive force investigation, So just the gamut Of cases and criminal conduct we're looking at is really mind blowing, and that has really put on enormous amount of work on the plate of the FBI and field office throughout the entire United States. So let's look at those initial cases and again. I want to clarify some misconceptions when criminal conduct occurs. We tried to obviously charge people as soon as possible. So the way looking just at the federal system will try to do that via criminal complaint. So when these actors Left the capital. These individuals, these defendants, obviously the impetus the marching orders by federal law enforcement was to find fix and charge these individuals as fast as possible. So the prosecutor some d. D. C. U S Attorney's office. We look for The most simple charge. We could file is quick as possible. So therefore the initial charges filed made these cases a lot of them were misdemeanors. They were trespassed cases, however. Those those those cases were opened on those initial charges. We also had several firearms charges. We also had several felony charges that were open with assault and battery. Illegal Thelonious possession of weapons. However, I want to clarify misconception. This is only the beginning. So after these criminal charges are filed via criminal complaints that allows us that allows law enforcement across the United States to arrest people from Dallas to Arkansas to Nashville to Cleveland to Jacksonville, That's what's happened over the past several days. It's really quite incredible. Now, after those charges are filed, then we have the ability to then indict these individuals on more significant charges, and that's exactly what has happened. For example, yesterday Again. Only days after this event happened. We had the grand jury in in the District of Columbia up. It was booked throughout the entire day and and for several hour upon hour. Prosecutors in our office presented felony cases significant felony cases related to civil disorder related to the possession of destructive devices related to the possession of semiotic Matic weapons that are illegal to possess in the district. So again, I just want to clarify that the initial charges were filing these some of these misdemeanors these air only these are only the beginning. This is not the end. So what are we looking at? Downstream here, So in terms of what we're looking at is the initial charges..
