The filing comes as Rhodes and another new arrestee have early hearings in their case on whether they should stay in jail and would be dangerous to the community if released, before their cases move to DC District Court. Neither has formally had the opportunity to enter a plea yet before a judge in DC, but both are expected to fight their charges.When unsealed last week, the seditious conspiracy case immediately became the boldest attempt by the DOJ to hold accountable participants in the Capitol riot, and potentially one of the toughest among more than 700 federal criminal cases to try.

"Mr. Vallejo played a minor role, if at all," Jang said. Prosecutors insisted that Vallejo's comments about responding to the 2020 presidential election showed he was prepared to resort to violence."We urge the court to recognize the danger Mr. Vallejo poses to the United States and take his words at face value," they said.
