FBI looking for West Tennesseans associated in US Capitol riot Wednesday

Two times immediately after supporters of President Donald Trump ransacked the U.S. Capitol, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Tennessee D. Michael Dunavant announced that his office and the Memphis Area Division of the FBI are investigating and will demand any possible violations of federal regulation fully commited for the duration of the incident by people today from West Tennessee. 

“The Division of Justice is committed to guaranteeing that these liable for this assault on our Govt and the rule of regulation face the whole repercussions of their actions below the regulation. We are doing work carefully with our partners at the FBI, who are actively investigating to acquire proof, detect perpetrators, and charge federal crimes wherever warranted,” Dunavant mentioned in a news launch. 

“Any particular person who traveled from West Tennessee to dedicate federal crimes in Washington, D.C., as properly as any one who conspired with them or aided or abetted this kind of lawlessness will be aggressively prosecuted by this business.”
