WATCH: FBI Agents Say ‘More is Coming’ For Jan 6th Insurrectionists
The FBI’s investigation into the January 6th attack on the Capitol is still very much active, and one former FBI insider revealed to Nicolle Wallace that many more arrests are forthcoming.
Appearing on “Deadline: White House” on Friday, Frank Figliuzzi shared with Wallace that he’s in contact with current FBI personnel, and while they’ve already arrested over 400 people in connection with the deadly insurrection, they anticipate at least 100 new arrests in the coming weeks thanks to nearly 250,000 tips from people like family members, significant others, former significant others, and colleagues who turned them in.
Wallace began by asking Figliuzzi about the Proud Boys who were denied bail because the judge believed that there’s a danger to the community if they were released. “There’s a couple of interesting things that are noteworthy about this decision to not permit bail and to hold these guys in custody, and that is, first, interestingly, for anyone who claims that this judge might be politically oriented in his decision making, understand that this was a judge that was appointed by Trump,” explained Figliuzzi. “Secondly, this judge had to basically differ with the lower court or other federal court judges who had previously been inclined to permit bail pending trial because he was presented with new evidence.”
But according to Figliuzzi, there is still more coming.

But the standout moment in the interview is when Figliuzzi tells Wallace, “You haven’t seen anything yet” when it comes to the new evidence uncovered by the investigation:
“The prosecutors presented new evidence, and Nicolle, the people I’m speaking to who are in a position to know about where these investigations are headed, are using phrases with me like, you haven’t seen anything yet. there’s more coming,” he warned. “And what they’re referring to when I ask them is two things. The number of people that are about to be charged, as you have said, it’s now been conceded that it will be at least 500. But they’re also referring to the caliber and magnitude of the cases. You’re going to see more conspiracy. You’re going to see people called out as leaders. Don’t be surprised if you see this kind of cross-referencing of Proud Boys and Oath Keepers in coordination with each other. And maybe even attempts to take both of those organizations down through an enterprise theory of prosecution.”
