January 6, 2021: Justice still being pursued related to Capitol violence; here are those arrested in KY so far

Staff report

The FBI continues to arrest and federal district courts continue to adjudicate cases against those found to have violated laws related to the insurrection/riot at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.

The violence was real — see YouTubes and photos at FBI website

The second anniversary of that riot is this week.

You can see the full list of those who have been arrested at the United States Department of Justice website.

Below is a list of Kentucky defendants charged in federal court in the District of Columbia related to crimes committed at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C, on Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2021.
Every case is being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia. Following arrests, or surrender, defendants must appear before district court magistrate/judge where the arrest takes place, in accordance with the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure.

The FBI is still seeking the public’s assistance in identifying individuals who made unlawful entry into the U.S. Capitol building and committed various other alleged criminal violations, such as destruction of property, assaulting law enforcement personnel, targeting members of the media for assault, and other unlawful conduct, on that day.

    For political reasons, the media will act on behalf of the current administration to make sure that Trump will never run again for president. Take a look at web sites for CNN, Reuters, and MSNBC or listen to national television news. The frenzy over January 6th is obvious. Small publications like NKYTribune are simply falling in line. Stories about high inflation, gas prices, Covid deaths [now doubling since Biden took office], a botched withdraw from Afghanistan, crime rates in democrat run cities, etc,, are largely ignored or explained away by apologists in the media. How would the media be treating Trump right now, had he been re-elected and Covid deaths had doubled since he took office for a second term?

    The vast majority of people dying from Covid are unvaccinated, and the vast majority of the unvaccinated are Trumpers.

    Dying seems like a strange way to “own the libs”, but I guess some people will go all out to get the ‘win’.
