On probation, Betancur knew his movements were being tracked electronically, so he had asked permission to go to Washington to sell Bibles. But after the Maryland man's GPS monitor showed he was in the US Capitol during the mob attack, he was arrested. According to Newser, he was charged with entering a restricted building or grounds, unlawful activities on Capitol Grounds, and disorderly conduct.

    Following the violent attack on the US Capitol, federal officials launched the most extensive counterterrorism probe since September 11, 2001. Meanwhile, the heads of the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security--and the President himself--have remained essentially silent.

Wray says the agency is monitoring 'extensive' online chatter about future protests and warned the men and women who wreaked havoc on the Capitol.

  • FBI: Capitol Rioters May Be Put On No-Fly List

    The FBI is considering adding those who attacked the US Capitol last week to the federal no-fly list. When a person checks in for a flight, his or her reservation information is checked against the TSA's Secure Flight database. The procedure includes determining whether the traveler is on the no-fly list or selectee list. On Tuesday, congressional leaders called to keep rioters off planes after they said they remained mostly in the dark from the agencies that oversee the list. Much of how the lists work, including what qualifies a person for inclusion and how many people are listed, is classified as sensitive security information. The no-fly list began in the wake of the 9/11 attacks when the FBI provided the FAA a list of 125 people who should not be allowed on planes.
