Five members of the same Texas family were arrested Tuesday and charged for their alleged participation in a riot at the U.S. Capitol, according to newly-unsealed charging documents that describe them as an allegedly criminal nuclear family from Borger, Texas who are each facing four federal charges over illegal entry into the capitol building and disorderly conduct inside it on January 6th last year."
The affidavit for their arrest details the movements of a family inside the Capitol on Jan. 6, based on surveillance and social media posts. It also indicates that one unidentified minor child was brought in with them who is not being charged.

This uncharged minor child is with them too- what a great family!
One family of four was the last to be arrested for their role in the Capitol riot.
A lawyer representing David Munn, his wife Nancy Munn, and two sons- Joshua Kintner and Nathanial Grant said that they will plead not guilty because "they are innocent."
The official police report states that members from this group threw rocks at law enforcement officers who were trying to protect civilians on a corner near an intersection where there had been reports of gunfire 24 hours earlier. It is unclear what charges these individuals might have faced if found by a jury with proof beyond reasonable doubt but it seems likely given previous arrests related to crimes against authorities or disturbances in public places under certain conditions; each charge carries up 4 years sentence without parole (with all 4 charges = 16 years) or a $250,000 fine.
FBI officials say they first received a tip that Kristi Munn participated in the Capitol riot just three days after the insurrection, from someone who captured screenshots of her Facebook and Snapchat accounts. From there investigators combed through public posts on social media from family members to track their journey as they made plans for a march on Congress which occurred last Friday, January 6th.
The family members were caught after the riot and investigators found posts from them discussing taking part in it.
"The only damage to the capital building was several windows and sets of doors," Tom Munn wrote on Facebook. "Nothing inside the capital was damaged. I can tell you, patriots NEVER made it to the chamber. There was no violence in the capitol building, the crowd was NOT out of control ... they were ANGRY!!!"
Prosecutors say the riot caused at least $1.5 million in damage to the U.S Capitol, including damages from those who made it into the Senate chamber during last week's demonstration on Trumpcare legislation and assault charges for over 100 people so far.
Investigators were able to verify the identities of Munn family members through interviews with three people who knew them, including two employees at a Texas college and high school.
A family was charged with the death of a toddler in their care, and while they have not entered pleas as of Tuesday afternoon, we can't wait to see what happens.
