Acting U.S. Attorney Michael Sherwin said some of the charges related to the Capitol assault could result in 20 years in prison.
“Some of the charges are felony charges, the punishment is up to 20 years in prison,” Sherwin said at a news conference.
He said the FBI and the prosecutor’s office are working across the country, looking for felony perpetrators that may have evidence of collusion.
Law enforcement officials are also focusing on gun cases. Sherwin promised that those who planted the explosive devices will be found.
“If you entered the (Capitol – ed.) grounds or you placed an explosive device, you will be found,” the acting prosecutor said.
Sherwin noted that there have already been court hearings against those involved in the assault.
“This is just the beginning,” he promised.
