Capitol Hill Siege

In keeping with our tradition of providing primary source documents to the research community and the public at large, The Program on Extremism has launched a project to create a central database of court records related to the events of January 6th, 2021. This page will be updated as additional individuals are charged with criminal activities and new records are introduced into the criminal justice system. You can view the latest numbers, check out our interactive visualizations, browse the cases, read our related reports, and download our database below.
