Federal Government Paying $6.1 Million To Create Database For Capitol
Riot Prosecutions

But not paying anything to equally prosecute Summer 2020 Murderers
Thugs Rioters Damagers Thieves Trespassers BLM+Antifa Etc.

The Department of Justice has committed to paying over $6 million to a
multinational firm to create a database to host the reams of data
prosecutors are gathering in cases against accused participants of the
Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

Deloitte Financial Advisory Services, LLP was contracted in late May
to help develop the database and the government has started
transferring a large volume of materials, including tens of thousands
of records from the U.S. Capitol Police, prosecutors said in a court
filing this week.

    “Following the Capitol Breach, the United States recognized that
due to the nature and volume of materials being collected, the
government would require the use of an outside contractor who could
provide litigation technology support services to include highly
technical and specialized data and document processing and review
capabilities,” prosecutors wrote in the filing, which was submitted in
a case against several accused Capitol rioters.

The government will work with Deloitte to process, review, and produce
material related to the breach, using various tools to redact certain
personal information.

Prosecutors expect the database to be available for use in the near future.

    “Once it is, the government will begin systematically reviewing
materials for potentially discoverable information, tagging when
possible (e.g., video by a location or type of conduct, tips by a type
of allegation), and redacting when necessary,” prosecutors wrote.

Deloitte did not return a request for comment.

The firm, which was listed as having a Virginia address, was awarded
$6.1 million by the Department of Justice for “automated litigation
support services,” according to a database holding government

That figure could swell to $25.9 million, according to the database
listing, which was reviewed by The Epoch Times.

The start date of the contract was June 1. The current end date is May
31, 2022. A potential end date was listed as May 31, 2027.

The existence of the database was first reported by Politico.

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) on Friday said the development signaled
that U.S. prosecutors are focused only on prosecuting cases related to
the breach.

    “The DOJ is going to spend $6.1 million on a January 6 database.
Where is the ANTIFA database? Where is the BLM database? It’s as if
the DOJ has given up on all investigations other than January 6,” she
wrote on Twitter.

Antifa is a far-left, anarcho-communist network that has perpetrated
violence across the United States, primarily in the Pacific Northwest.
BLM refers to Black Lives Matter, a movement that alleges minorities
are systematically treated unjustly by law enforcement, among other
claims. DOJ stands for the Department of Justice, which did not return
a request for comment.

More than 535 people have been charged as of July 6 with crimes
related to the breach, including 165 for assaulting, resisting, or
impeding officers or employees, according to the DOJ.

FBI agents are still seeking assistance identifying another 300 or so
persons accused of participating in the tumult on Jan. 6.

The Federal Public Defender’s Office (FPD), meanwhile, is also mulling
putting in place multiple databases to help with the defense of
accused riot participants, prosecutors also said.

“Given the volume of information that may be discoverable, FPD is
carefully examining options for accepting materials. We understand
that FPD is considering contracting with a vendor to establish
databases that can be used to receive and perform technical searches
upon discoverable materials. The government’s discovery team is in the
process of identifying the scope and size of materials that may be
turned over to FPD with as much detail as possible, so that FPD can
obtain accurate quotes from potential database vendors,” they wrote in
the new filing.

“It is hoped that this database will be used by FPD offices nationwide
that are working on Capitol Breach cases and counsel that are
appointed under the Criminal Justice Act. We believe that a database
will be the most organized and economical way of ensuring that all
counsel can obtain access to, and conduct meaningful searches upon,
relevant voluminous materials, e.g., thousands of hours of body worn
camera and Capitol CCTV footage, and tens of thousands of documents,
including the results of thousands of searches of Stored
Communications Act accounts and devices,” they added.
