  • A pro-Trump mob descended on the Capitol on January 6, 2021, and hundreds face criminal charges.
  • It took four hours to secure the building so Congress could certify President Joe Biden's victory.

Since supporters of then-President Donald Trump swarmed the US Capitol on January 6, 2021 — forcing Congress to go into lockdown and damaging the halls of government — more than 1,000 people have been arrested and charged with crimes.

The FBI is still seeking the public's help to identify people who took part in one of the most documented crimes in US history.

But since most rioters were allowed to walk free that day, it's taking years to track them down.

This table includes the names, charges, links to court documents, and links to additional stories of all the people charged as of February 13, 2023. Insider has since stopped tracking guilty pleas and the charges handed down to Capitol rioters, but other sources, like George Washington University's Program on Extremism, continue to keep track.

At least 476 federally charged rioters have entered guilty pleas.

The number of people charged in the insurrection has grown as FBI agents pore through video footage, social media posts, phone location data, and tips from the public.

A House of Representatives committee has also been investigating the riot, and recommended 4 charges against Trump

Democratic members of Congress pushed for a bipartisan commission to investigate the Capitol riot akin to the one made post-9/11, but Senate Republicans blocked the attempt.

The House of Representatives narrowly voted to create a commission on June 30, 2021. Reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger were the only Republicans on the panel.

The House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol interviewed hundreds of people, issued dozens of subpoenas, and sorted through thousands of documents relating to the riot. The committee also held 10 public hearings to showcase its findings from June 9 until December 19, 2022.

In December 2022, the committee formally recommended four charges against Trump: conspiracy to defraud the US, conspiracy to make false statements, obstruction of an official proceeding, and inciting an insurrection.

The referral doesn't carry any legal weight, and the Justice Department doesn't have to bring charges because of it.
