More with ties to NJ charged as US Capitol riot investigation continues

It’s been nearly three months since the violent attack on the U.S. Capitol and FBI officials are still peeling back the layers of what’s believed to be the largest and most complex criminal investigation in this nation’s history. As they do, the list of those charged who have ties to New Jersey keeps growing. Their backgrounds range from a farmer’s market owner to members of far-right extremist groups. We take a deeper look as part of Exploring Hate, our ongoing series on antisemitism, racism and extremism.

Major funding for Exploring Hate has been provided by the Sylvia A. and Simon B. Poyta Programming Endowment to Fight Antisemitism, The Peter G. Peterson and Joan Ganz Cooney Fund and Patti Askwith Kenner.
