FBI makes three more J6 arrests

 January 7, 2024

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is still arresting people in relation to the Capitol protest of Jan. 6, 2021. 

The Washington Times reports that, on Saturday, the FBI arrested three Florida residents for their involvement in the protest.

The three individuals have been identified as Jonathan D. Pollock, 24; his sister, Olivia M. Pollock, 33; and Joseph D. Hutchingson, 27.

Saturday - the day of the arrests - was the third anniversary of the Jan. 6, 2021, protest.

The allegations

The FBI claims that all three individuals assaulted officers during the protest.

"According to a 53-page indictment, Jonathan Pollock and Hutchinson are on video recordings repeatedly punching officers during the riots. Pollock is also alleged to have grabbed riot shields from officers, and he and Hutchinson are accused of using the edge of one to strike an officer in the neck or face," the Times reports.

The outlet adds, "Olivia Pollock is charged with punching and elbowing an officer and trying to grab officers’ batons."

For these actions, the three individuals have all been charged with multiple felonies, including assaulting officers and violent entry of the U.S. Capitol.

The indictment was first issued in April 2021. Jonathan Pollock, in response, went into hiding. Olivia Pollock and Hutchingson were arrested in June 2021, and they went into hiding after being released on bond.

1,265 charges

ABC News just published a report highlighting law enforcement's response to the Jan. 6, 2021, protest.

"In the three years since the Jan. 6, 2021, assault on the U.S. Capitol, federal prosecutors have charged more than 1,265 defendants across nearly all 50 states and D.C. and secured sentences of incarceration for more than 460 people, according to newly released numbers from the U.S. Attorney's Office in D.C.," the outlet reports.

It, later, adds, "Of the more than 1,265 individuals charged since Jan. 6, 2021, department prosecutors have secured more than 718 guilty pleas -- including 213 who pleaded to felonies that include assaults on federal officers, obstructing law enforcement, and seditious conspiracy. Also, 171 others have been found guilty at trial or otherwise convicted, the D.C. U.S. Attorney Office said."

NBC News reports, "Hundreds of additional rioters have been identified but not yet arrested, and Matthew Graves — the top federal prosecutor in Washington — said this week that 'scores' of new cases are on the way."

This weekend - the third anniversary of the Capitol protest - has made it clear that the political left, including mainstream media outlets such as NBC News and ABC News, are still trying to capitalize politically off of Jan. 6, 2021.
