Some defendants in the Capitol riot allegedly tried to wipe information from their phones and social networks

Some defendants in the Capitol riot allegedly tried to wipe information from their phones and social networks

In the days following the attack, Sen. Mark Warner (D-Virginia), asked mobile carriers and social media platforms to preserve “content and associated metadata” that may have been connected to the attack. The Washington Post reported Saturday that the Department of Justice has started arresting people who attacked reporters documenting the riot, damaging their equipment. The Post reports that the people would be charged with committing violence or destroying property on the grounds of the Capitol.

The AP cited several cases where accused rioters’ social media posts apparently contradicted what they told authorities about their involvement in the attack. Hundreds of supporters of former President Trump stormed the Capitol building on January 6th as members of Congress prepared to certify the results of the presidential election. More than 500 people have been arrested in connection with the riot, Attorney General Merrick Garland said last month.
