Federal investigators are looking at communications between members of Congress and the pro-Trump mob that attacked the US Capitol, an official says

The data gathered so far includes indications of contact with lawmakers in the days around January 6, as well as communications between alleged rioters discussing their associations with members of Congress, the official said. DC National Guard commander says 'unusual' Pentagon restrictions slowed response to Capitol riotThe existence of such communications doesn't necessarily indicate wrongdoing by lawmakers and investigators aren't yet targeting members of Congress in the investigation, the official noted. Should investigators find probable cause that lawmakers or their staffs possibly aided the insurrectionists, they could seek warrants to obtain the content of the communications. There's no indication they've taken such a step at this point. RELATED: US Capitol Police request two-month extension of National Guard deployment in WashingtonWith about 300 people facing charges, the investigation has shifted from the roundup of what law enforcement officials consider low-hanging fruit arrests of people accused of participating in the riot to those who allegedly conspired and planned the assault to disrupt the constitutional process of congressional certification of the election results. Read MoreJustice Department officials have assigned more than two dozen prosecutors, including some from outside Washington, to delve into more complex questions, including possible funding of insurrectionists and whether political figures, including lawmakers and staff, aided the attack, the US official said.FBI Director Wray knocks down conspiracy theory that January 6 rioters were 'fake Trump protesters'Law enforcement officials say one of the first steps taken after the insurrection was to seek cell phone tower data to try to identify people at the Capitol that day, a tactic allowed under existing law. That was necessary, the officials say, because among the multiple failures that day was the US Capitol Police allowing the hundreds of people who had attacked the building to leave without arrest. Authorities announced only a handful of arrests on January 6, and the FBI and other agencies subsequently used a dragnet across the country to find the rioters. Law enforcement officers have used what they call an"exclusion list." The list lets investigators see mobile devices that were authorized to be in the Capitol -- such as for Congress members and staff, law enforcement and other government and public safety officials -- while sifting out people who were not authorized to be in the building, according to a federal court filing in a riot-related case.The FBI and Justice Department declined to comment. FBI collection of phone metadata and geolocator data -- permissible under federal law -- was the subject of multiple lines of questions this week by some senators who pressed FBI Director Christopher Wray to reveal what investigators were doing with communications and financial data. Republican Sens. Mike Lee of Utah and Josh Hawley of Missouri suggested at a hearing Tuesday that the FBI could be overstepping its authority by scooping up communications data.

DHS official lists threat assessments that were shared ahead of Capitol riot 04:27Investigators also have Capitol Police security footage that Democrats want examined to see if any members gave tours to riot participants in advance of January 6. Democrats have accused unnamed Republicans of providing rallygoers access, suggesting they were surveillance opportunities ahead of the riot. Other lawmakers have a separate concern, that as investigators move closer to the activities of lawmakers, some members of Congress could use the protections of the Constitution's Speech or Debate Clause to try to block the work of the FBI. The clause provides legal immunity to members of Congress when carrying out their legislative duties. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, a Rhode Island Democrat, says he's asked the Senate Ethics Committee to investigate because he believes Congress will be able to get information that the FBI may have trouble getting because of the Speech or Debate protections. Whitehouse, in a telephone interview with CNN, says his effort is aimed at"making sure this isn't an investigation that is limited to the individuals who assaulted and entered the Capitol on January 6," adding that"potential culpability by members of Congress" has to be investigated. The new phase of the federal probe is along the lines federal officials outlined after the attack. Acting US Attorney for the District of Columbia Michael Sherwin said that after the initial stage of rounding up rioters, prosecutors and investigators would begin examining more difficult aspects: including the funding and organizing of the riot, the likely interviews of lawmakers and even whether incitement at the rally held by President Donald Trump before the riot broke any laws. Prosecutors have also pushed to bring sedition charges against some alleged rioters, a step awaiting approval from the Justice Department, according to people briefed on the matter.

GOP senator continues to push riot conspiracy theory 03:57Sherwin has announced he will move to the Justice Department to help manage the cases for a period while the department sets out a longer-term plan for a sprawling probe that will stretch months. Justice officials are mindful of the political and constitutional implications of parts of the investigation, particularly any that touch on members of Congress, according to law enforcement officials. So far, investigators haven't found evidence that members of Congress knowingly aided or were involved in the insurrection, the US official said. The FBI has seized devices belonging to alleged rioters and has found communications that show connections that investigators plan to examine further. In some cases, there is data showing past contact with lawmakers, and in others there's communications between alleged rioters discussing their associations with members of Congress. Some alleged rioters have also claimed to have provided security for lawmakers In one case against an alleged leader of the right-wing paramilitary group the Oath Keepers, a defendant has claimed she was enlisted to provide security to legislators and others in their march to the Capitol.

Inside a Black Hole

Don't let the name fool you: a black hole is anything but empty space. Black holes are some of the most extreme, bizarre and fascinating objects in the universe. Regina Caputo and Jeremy Schnittman describe what it might be like to go hunting for one.

Apostate1123 It can't have planned they didn't even know where the room was and was easily led away. An internet search would have provided a map and layout of the building. Unless they are truly idiots. And what happened to this? Why has nothing happened Mob? Seriously? And what about the BLM gang? Oh, I forgot, they have the right skin color, so they are allowed to crash and loot shops and kill policemen

This story was breaking news when kenklippenstein broke it. Why didn't you credit kenklippenstein when he broke this story long before you Students are taught to cite their sources for the sake of honesty and integrity, but then mainstream media gets away with such dishonest behavior. What a shame, not that CNN ever had integrity... 👎🏽

There were communications? Like...🤨That is so concerning. People died...so that makes the representatives or staff accomplices? Ask yourself one question and that is “why isn’t the FBI going after Qanon?” Seriously. Why not? Because it’s a government psyop involving our military? Q will never be found and that’s your biggest give away.

“The existence of such communications doesn't necessarily indicate wrongdoing by lawmakers and investigators aren't yet targeting members of Congress in the investigation, the official noted. “ so we can just infer there must be a connection. The use of FBI as a political tool Lauren... are you loading up all your poorly secured cache of firearms as you wait for the gendarmes...?

👀👀👀👀👀 Somebody in trouble!!! Lauren Boebert and MTG, we’re looking at you 👀 I don’t think Republicans congressmen would be talking to Antifa activists in the crowd. No sir So you gonna just keep plagiarizing kenklippenstein or what You would think that it was already being done. What's up with that! Looking at this objectively, if it was another so called group how fast would they actually address these types of people? Too many smoke and mirrors going for too long because of skin color. Just get it done.🤔

Wow I didn't realize kenklippenstein was shadow writing CNN articles. Congrats Ken! In all seriousness, credit my mans you clowns Are you going to credit kenklippenstein for this one or just steal his work? Credit kenklippenstein and eat shit. Thanks to kenklippenstein !

You'll soon prove that Trump is right. And you'll return the office of the president to him shortly. That’s weird because I was told you could see numbers, not names. So is this plagiarism or just theft? I always forget the difference. Especially in regards to what you're doing by not crediting kenklippenstein

Why nobody investigate the robbing, smashing on the streets, shops in last summer, aren’t they mobs?!!! You said Gentleman United States Senator from Vermont Mr. Bernie Sanders I applause you to put the words on the right track That Republicans only one buy some times to dilate the process works all together Democrats Republicans are unstructured I can’t believe it’s always trying

Don't know how elites handle this. P. S. Read the replies and say kenklippenstein is not a presidential contender in the future 😂 Joke aside, he is the one who broke more leaked documental stories than anyone.

Must be original reporting from evanperez Have you tweeted out an apology for lifting kenklippenstein's work? You really should, because you took his shit. This would get you suspended from any college. Seems CNN reporters never set a foot into one. This is unprofessional for for not citing their sources.

Is anybody going to be surprised? Those idiots didn't find their way into the Capitol on their own. oh cool, CNN can't do journalism so they steal it from real journalists like kenklippenstein. Maybe... you could've at least credited? Stop lying about pro Trump mob. The real pro Trump people weren't even near the Capital

ToddDevlin Which members of Congress 🤨 There will be no ‘convictions’. But if the investigation digs up enough bad ‘optics’ then the ‘doubts’ will dog them permanently, and probably end any big political dreams. Gradual irrelevance is about all we can hope for with these guys. TYBK kenklippenstein Good.

Credit kenklippenstein “Republican Sens. Mike Lee of Utah and Josh Hawley of Missouri suggested at a hearing Tuesday that the FBI could be overstepping its authority by scooping up communications data.” Hawley scurred ….aaaaaaand boom goes the dynamite Cite Ken you hacks! Tommy? I call bullshit. This is the annual democrat made up scandal with no evidence and will never produce evidence. I stopped believing their garbage after the first couple. Now it’s just so transparent it’s sickening.

That will end up in court. And I’d guess there’s going to be a very high bar to see Congressional ‘private’ communications. clearing_fog Credit for this story goes to kenklippenstein Credit kenklippenstein you cowards this is scummy of CNN Please cite Ken Klippenstein you hacks you gonna post kenklippenstein memes without attribution now ooorrr?

Now I see why Herr Hawley was asking all those questions. Liz Cheney should use this as an opportunity to get rid of the far right QAnon members and white supremacists in her party. It's about time! How can members of congres be involved in an attempted insurrection and not have any repercussions up until now!? Seems like the closer to law making you get, the less you actually have to follow the law. 🤔🤔
