A study by the George Washington University’s Program on Extremism has found that more than half of the people charged in the U.S. Capitol Hill riot that took place on January 6 were not connected to extremist groups or each other. Court documents and other data from 257 cases filed in federal court since late February were examined as part of the study. It found that out of those who were charged, a total of 33 were involved with militant networks, while 82 had connections with others through networks of similar-minded protestors. The study suggests that the other 142 rioters who were charged decided to go to the Capitol on their own.
