Pipe bomb planter still unidentified one year after Capitol riot

One year after the Capitol riot, the person who planted pipe bombs the night before outside both the Republican and Democratic national committee headquarters in the nation’s capital remains unknown and at large.

Attorney General Merrick Garland gave a speech on the eve of the riot’s one year anniversary in which he described the more than 725 arrests the Justice Department has made thus far — with the attempted pipe bomber going conspicuously unmentioned.

One pipe bomb was placed in an alley behind the RNC, while the other was placed next to a park bench near the DNC.

Steven D’Antuono, assistant director in charge of the FBI's Washington Field Office, said in a recent interview that the pipe bombs were “viable devices that could have gone off and exploded, causing a lot of serious injury or death." He contended that it "has always been a priority since day one to find this individual.”
