Fewer than 100 people are believed to have been arrested in connection with Wednesday's MAGA riot and police are now scrambling to catch up with the many who got away thanks to the outnumbered Capitol Police let them all walk free from the scene.
Some 85 people have been arrested and 55 have been charged in total across different jurisdictions but many of the indictments have not been made public. There are ongoing investigations by the Capitol Police, FBI, DC Metropolitan Police and the Department of Justice is assisting them all. The Secretary of the Army also revealed on Sunday that 25 domestic terrorism cases have been opened.
Because of the scale of the operation, hundreds of agents and cops are being deployed to track down the rioters who got away.
It is being described as an 'unprecedented' effort that was hindered from the start because the vast majority of the rioters were able to leave Washington DC last week without being arrested and have now scattered back to their various home states across the country.
On Friday, the Department of Justice released information on 13 of the people they had charged to date.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
Since then, some of the more prolific culprits - like QAnon Shaman Jake Angeli, who stormed the Capitol wearing a horned furry hat - and stay-at-home father Adam Johnson, 36, who stole Nancy Pelosi's lectern - have also been taken into custody.
Multiple others have been named as persons of interest but they haven't yet been tracked down, including one man who is reportedly in hiding after being linked to the riots. At least two cops are also under suspicion of having some role in the riots, including an NYPD officer. It's almost an impossibility that the many thousands who stormed the Capitol will all be caught.
Those who have been arrested and charged face will be prosecuted for an array of offences including unlawful entry, firearms possession, assault and making threats.
No one has been charged with murder. Four rioters died in the chaos, as did one cop who collapsed after allegedly being hit over the head with a fire extinguisher. A second cop killed himself days later.
Among those who have been arrested or connected to the riot so far are;
Richard Barnett, 60, who put his feet on Nancy Pelosi's desk

The self-proclaimed White Nationalist boasted about it afterwards. He even left a threatening note on Pelosi's desk which read 'we will not back down'.
Barnett, 60, left the Capitol unstopped. He was eventually arrested in Little Rock, Arkansas, where he is from.

Nicholas R. Ochs was arrested in Hawaii. He claimed that he took part in the MAGA raid as a 'professional journalist'.

'There were thousands of people in there — they had no control of the situation.
'I didn’t get stopped or questioned.'
On Friday, the Justice Department unsealed a criminal complaint against Ochs, charging him with unlawful entry into restricted buildings or grounds.

Photos on his now-deleted social media accounts show him posing next to a sign reading 'closed to all tours' inside the building. Johnson, who was pictured inside the Capitol making off with a lectern, appears to have removed his social media platforms in the aftermath of the siege.
Court documents reveal that the FBI consulted with members of the Speaker's staff to determine that the lectern was stored in the Speaker's Suite, located under a staircase to the third floor on the House side of the building.
The lectern was found on January 7 by a member of the Senate staff in the Red corridor of the Senate wing off the Rotunda in the Capitol building. It is worth more than $1,000, according to the House of Representatives' curator.
Unhinged retired Texas cop who took cable ties onto the floor of the Senate
Retired Lieutenant Colonel Larry Rendall Brock Jr., 53
Retired Lieutenant Colonel Larry Rendall Brock Jr., 53, was among the violent mob of Trump supporters who stormed the US Capitol Wednesday in a riot that left five including one police officer dead.
The father-of-three, who now lives in Dallas, was pictured on the Senate floor Wednesday after the group had broken through barricades, pushed back law enforcement and sent lawmakers fleeing for safety.
Images show him wearing a combat helmet, body armor and a vinyl tag with the Punisher skull on - a symbol adopted by white supremacists and believers of conspiracy theory QAnon.
He carried zip-tie handcuffs and appeared to be speaking with fellow rioters, several of which were dressed in MAGA caps.
He was arrested Sunday in Texas and charged with knowingly entering a restricted building without lawful authority, according to the Justice Department.
Brock's family members and a former Air Force comrade have painted a concerning picture of the veteran - one of a man who has become increasingly radical and been influenced by white supremacy in recent years.
'Torch got all in on Trump. He went all in on the alternative-news-source world,' said Leake.
'He actually believes liberals and
