A lawmaker from West Virginia and a man who broke into Speaker Nancy Pelosiís office and posed at her desk were among those arrested on charges related to the siege at the Capitol, federal law enforcement officials announced on Friday as they promised an exhaustive investigation into the violence.

The authorities also found 11 Molotov cocktails and a semiautomatic rifle in the truck of a 70-year-old man from Alabama who was also arrested, according to prosecutors. He also had two handguns.

Hundreds of prosecutors and F.B.I. agents have been assigned to work the investigation and were pursuing dozens of cases, Ken Kohl, a prosecutor in the U.S. attorneyís office in Washington, said in a briefing with reporters.

Another man, Richard Barnett, 60, from Gravette, Ark., was taken into custody and faces three counts. He had posted a picture on social media that showed him sitting at Ms. Pelosiís desk with his feet up and said he had expected to be arrested.

FBI should have fun with this. Itíll be pretty productive and probably not too hard to round up many of these seditious morons.

5. Every single person who attacked the Capitol should be sitting in fear now

Not knowing when the FBI is going to arrive on their doorsteps or at their work or when they're out shopping to drag them away shackled in front of family, friends and coworkers. Their lives, their livelihoods and their future dreams and prospects are about to take a devastating turn. Treason has consequences, fuckers. Terrorize this.

6. The West Virginia lawmaker is named Derrick Evans.

He was an elected legislator, another example of a GOP bully who seeks power for himself above all others... and surely promising his voters to do nothing while in office like so many of them.
