The number of January 6 prosecutions could double if a newly revealed prediction by the Justice Department comes true.
U.S. Attorney Matthew Graves wrote to Beryl Howell, the chief judge of the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., on October 28 saying between 700 and 1,200 more people could face charges, according to Bloomberg News.
“We expect the pace of bringing new cases will increase, in an orderly fashion, over the course of the next few months,” Graves said.

Still, Graves conceded the “complexity” of the investigation made it “incredibly difficult” to predict future cases and left room for tweaking the estimates as his office works to “evaluate changing resources and circumstances.”
At the time Graves sent the letter, the Justice Department reportedly closed in on its 900th arrest.
