In Texas, federal prosecutors have charged 34-year-old Capitol insurrectionist Garret Miller with threatening to assassinate progressive New York Congressmember Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Capitol Police are investigating Maryland Republican Congressmember Andy Harris after he tried to bring a concealed handgun onto the House floor. Harris was turned around last Thursday after he set off a metal detector.
The Washington Post reports the Justice Department and FBI are considering not bringing charges against hundreds of people who joined the insurrection inside the Capitol. The FBI has only arrested about 125 people in connection with the siege. Last summer, over 14,000 people were arrested for protesting for racial justice during the nationwide Black Lives Matter uprising.
Meanwhile, the White House has ordered the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to oversee a comprehensive assessment of the threat of domestic violent extremism, to be carried out by the Department of Homeland Security and FBI.
