Storm on US Capitol: Six other right-wing militia members indicted in the US

The US Department of Justice has charged six other suspects with storming the US Capitol on January 6th. The women and men all have ties to or are members of the right-wing Oath Keepers militia. One charge against them: conspiracy to obstruct a government process. The defendants are said to have agreed to hinder the certification of the results of the US presidential election, according to a statement from the prosecutor's office on Friday.

The six arrested this week in Florida, North Carolina and Ohio are said to have worked with three other suspects who were already indicted in January. Seven of the men and women reportedly wore paramilitary equipment on January 6 and marched up the stairs of the congress building in the style of a tactical military unit, broke through a door and stormed into the building.

"Trump said it was going to be wild !!!!!!!"

According to investigators, one of the defendants, who describes himself as the leader of the Oath Keepers in Florida, wrote in a message on Facebook at the end of December: "Trump said it was going to be wild !!!!!!! It was going to be wild !!!! !!! He wants us to go wild, that's what he says. He called us all to the Capitol and wants us to go wild !!! Sir, yes, sir !!! " Another suspect reportedly organized firearms and combat training for himself and others before January 6th.

The six suspects were arrested. Some of them have links with the military or the police. A total of 229 suspects have so far been charged in connection with the forcible storming of the Capitol.

Donald Trump lost the US presidential election in November to the Democratic candidate Joe Biden. On the day that Congress was supposed to confirm the results, the then US President held a rally not far from the White House. He incited his supporters by saying that the election victory had been stolen from him, as he had done in the previous weeks. His speech was followed by a forcible storming of the Capitol, where Congress had come together to confirm Joe Biden's election victory. Five people died. The Democrats accused Trump of inciting a riot and initiated impeachment proceedings against him. It ended in an acquittal.
