Last week, two Oregon brothers were arrested on several federal charges, including conspiracy, related to the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection led by supporters of then-President Donald Trump. Five people were killed 139 police officers were injured during the attack, according to federal prosecutors. The riot, which occurred as Congress was certifying the Electoral College vote for the 2020 presidential election, was spurred on by false claims of widespread voter fraud and a rigged election.
