More than 300 supporters of former President Donald Trump have been charged in the storming of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, including members of far-right extremist groups. At least 15 of those cases, including three more announced Wednesday, involve Ohio residents identified through social media posts and surveillance footage and often turned in by friends or family members.

Two Ohio men have been charged for their alleged involvement in the January 6th insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

As a violent mob descended on the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, lawmakers and aides hid wherever they could, waiting for the military and police to arrive. But many of those who stormed the Capitol were military veterans themselves, who had once sworn to protect the Constitution. In fact, an NPR analysis has found that nearly 1 in 5 people charged over their alleged involvement in the attack on the U.S. Capitol appear to have a military history.

Democratic US Sen Sherrod Brown is calling on President Trump’s cabinet to remove him from office using the 25th amendment. That would allow Vice President Mike Pence and a majority of the cabinet to declare Trump unfit for office.

U.S. Sen Sherrod Brown (D-OH) condemned the mob that stormed the Capitol and he wants Trump’s cabinet to invoke the 25th amendment. That would put Vice President Mike Pence in charge for the next 12 days, until the inauguration of President Elect Joe Biden later this month.

More than 24 hours after thousands of his supporters stormed the Capitol, President Trump on Thursday night condemned the violence in a video he posted on social media, calling it a "heinous attack."

The video, which comes more than two months after the election that he fought to find a way to reverse, marks the first time Trump acknowledges that he lost — coming as close as he likely will get to a concession.

The mob violence that descended on the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday was the culmination of weeks of incendiary rhetoric and increasingly feverish planning – much of which took place openly on websites popular with far-right conspiracy theorists.

Jared Holt spends a lot of time on those websites. He's a visiting research fellow with the Atlantic Council's Digital Forensic Research Lab, where he has been focused on extremist online activity.

As he opened Thursday's coronavirus press conference, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine again denounced Wednesday's attack on the U.S. Capitol.
