Federal prosecutors are bringing charges against two more Wisconsin men for being inside the U.S. Capitol back on January 6th.
There is no evidence that Brandon Nelson and Abram Markofski committed any vandalism or violence while inside the Capitol building. Prosecutors are simply charging them for being inside. Markofski is a member of the Wisconsin National Guard, investigators say he told them he drove from the LaCrosse area to Washington, D.C. to be part of the protest in the capital that day. The two now bring Wisconsin’s total of people charged in connection to the January riot at the Capitol to five people.
