FBI asks for public’s help in finding additional Capitol riot suspects

It’s been more than nine weeks since the Capitol riot and the FBI is still looking for suspects.

The FBI tweeted several photos to try to get more information.

While arrests have been made and charges leveled against multiple suspects in the riot, the FBI is still seeking information about many of the rioters.

Over 300 defendants have been charged in federal court, and the government said in a filing Friday that they expect to charge at least 100 more.

FBI Director Christopher Wray said last week that citizens from around the country had sent the FBI more than 270,000 digital media tips.
