Biden’s DOJ Wants $34 Million to Prosecute J6ers Identified by Online ‘Sedition Hunters’

The DOJ needs more money to prosecute Americans identified by a “global community” of online “Sedition Hunters”

The Biden administration’s Department of Justice is requesting more money to prosecute people who attended the Washington, D.C. protests on January 6, specifically “hundreds” of Americans identified for arrest by a group of progressive “sedition hunters” who organize online.

The Justice Department apparently needs more lawyers to prosecute the American citizens who they claim acted illegally on January 6, 2021, when people who traveled to hear 45th President Donald Trump speak left the rally while he was still speaking and stormed the U.S. Capitol. Ultimately, a police officer died in the days after the events, and a woman was shot at point blank range by a Capitol Hill police officer, who will not face prosecution.

NBC News reports that the online network “Sedition Hunters” is working with the Department of Justice to put Americans behind bars, and claims the Internet sleuths have “successfully identified to the FBI hundreds of additional” people to be arrested.

“There are hundreds to go,” one internet sleuth told NBC News.

On their website, the Sedition Hunters describe the events of January 6 as a “violent assault” and identify themselves as “a global community of open-source intelligence investigators” who work with the “FBI and Washington D.C. Capitol Police” to hunt “those who committed crimes on January 6 at the Capitol.”

They offer quotes from Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and Bibi Netanyahu to justify their work.

Speaking to NBC, sleuths expressed dismay that people they identified have not yet been arrested by federal law enforcement. NBC News suggests the lack of arrests are due to a lack of resources.

“The sprawling Jan. 6 investigation is overwhelming the Justice Department and FBI,” reported the outlet, citing anonymous “law enforcement sources and those familiar with the investigation, and the federal courthouse in D.C., where every trial must be held.”

“Given the resource needs,” the outlet explains, “the proposed Justice Department budget for the 2023 fiscal year includes an additional $34 million and 130 positions for Capitol prosecutions.”

Around 800 people have been arrested in the 15 months since January 6, and many of the defendants remain behind bars awaiting trial. Some have no prior criminal history, and many are military veterans and small business owners.

    “Ultimately, a police officer died in the days after the events,…”

    Good grief…that officer’s death had nothing to do with jan 6.

    if they want to set the precedent… we have just as many people that can identify the Marxist Terrorist Antifa/BLM seditionists. Let’s get this civil war rolling.

    The 1st and 2nd amendments are under intense attack. We really need to fight back.
