DOJ and FBI Will Build Cases of Sedition and Conspiracy from Events at US Capitol

The Department of Justice and the FBI had a joint press conference on Tuesday to announce an expected lengthy investigation into the events and circumstances leading up, during and after protests, gatherings and riots at the US Capitol on Jan 6th.

“This is the beginning of what will last for weeks, months, and years,” Michael Sherwin said.

“We’re looking at significant felony cases tied to sedition and conspiracy,” charges that have prison terms of up to 20 years. “You will be charged and you will be found,” acting US attorney in DC Michael Sherwin says.

More than 170 people are being investigated for their role in the Capitol riot and more than 70 have been charged so far, acting U.S. Attorney for D.C. Michael Sherwin says. Total investigations and charges expected to grow into the hundreds in the coming weeks.

“We’re looking at and treating this just like a significant international counterterrorism or counterintelligence operation,” US attorney in DC Sherwin says. “We’re looking at everything: Money, travel records, looking at disposition, movement, communication records,” he said. 

“Regardless of if it was just a trespass in the Capitol, or if someone planted a pipe bomb — you will be charged and you will be found,” Sherwin said.

FBI Washington Field Office ADIC, Steven D’Antuono: “Even if you’ve left D.C., agents from our local field offices will be knocking on your door if we find out that you were part of the criminal activity at the Capitol.”

Michael R. Sherwin is the Acting United States Attorney for the District of Columbia. As the Acting U.S. Attorney for DC his office is responsible for the prosecution of all federal crimes and all serious local crimes committed in the District.

Prior to becoming Acting U.S. Attorney, Sherwin served as Associate Deputy Attorney General advising Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen on national security matters at the Department of Justice.

Sherwin is a career prosecutor who joined the Department of Justice in 2008. He served as an Assistant United States Attorney in the Southern District of Florida (Miami) for 12 years.

Sherwin began his tenure in Miami as a line prosecutor. In 2010, Sherwin joined the Narcotics Section where he prosecuted Colombian and Venezuelan drug cartels and kingpins. Sherwin was the lead prosecutor in the investigation and conviction of Sigifredo Maya, a top member of the Medellín Cartel and close associate of Pablo Escobar and Carlos Lehder.

For six years until 2018, Sherwin prosecuted securities fraud, tax fraud, government corruption and multiple cases under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act in the Office’s Economic Crimes Section. In 2016, he became chief of that section’s Health Care Fraud Section, supervising the largest health care strike force in the United States. Under his leadership, the section led the Department in health care fraud indictments, trials and asset forfeitures.

In 2019, Sherwin joined the Office’s National Security Section where he prosecuted counter-intelligence and terrorism cases, specializing in Chinese counterintelligence and national security investigations.

In addition to his work in Miami, in 2011, Sherwin was chosen by then Attorney General Eric Holder to serve a special detail for the Department of State in Bagram, Afghanistan, where he assisted the Afghanistan Attorney General’s Office in more than 120 primary court terrorism trials and 250 appellate cases before a specially convened Afghan judicial tribunal.  These cases focused on prosecuting top-tier Taliban and al-Qaida explosives engineers, suicide-bomb recruiters, and terrorism financiers.


Director Christopher Wray named Steven M. D’Antuono as the assistant director in charge of the Washington Field Office. Most recently, Mr. D’Antuono served as the special agent in charge of the Detroit Field Office.

Mr. D’Antuono was promoted to supervisory special agent in 2004 and returned to the FBI Academy to teach white-collar crime courses. He transferred back to the Washington Field Office in 2008 to supervise a public corruption and government fraud squad.

Mr. D’Antuono was promoted to an assistant special agent in charge at the St. Louis Field Office in 2014, overseeing the Criminal and Administrative branches. In 2017, Mr. D’Antuono was promoted to chief of the Financial Crimes Section of the Criminal Investigative Division.
