The FBI has released new photos of at least 10 additional MAGA mob rioters they are hunting down after they stormed the US Capitol in the violent siege that left five dead – as the Justice Department said there was no evidence of Antifa involvement.

The wanted poster, which was released by the FBI’s Washington Field Office on Friday, features close up photos of 10 Trump supporters that were taken inside the Capitol building. 

Federal authorities are seeking the public’s help in tracking down those pictured for making ‘unlawful entry’ into the Capitol building. 

The most recent wanted poster is in addition to the dozens the FBI have already said they are trying to track down. 

It comes as the Justice Department said there is no indication so far that Antifa played any role in the riots – despite claims from some Republicans that the group were posing as Trump supporters.

Authorities have already arrested more than 80 rioters who breached the Capitol building, scaled the Senate and House Chambers, vandalized statues, fired tear gas and defaced property.

Fifty-five are being pursued on federal charges, authorities say. 

Dozens more, who were labeled as ‘great patriots by President Trump, are still yet to be identified. So far, the FBI has identified and released photos of about 40 people they need help tracking down. 

The suspects are wanted on a slew of charges, including inciting a riot and weapons charges.

It comes as the DoJ announced on a call with reporters on Friday that 15 people have now been charged including 60-year-old Richard Barnett – the man who put his feet on Nancy Pelosi’s desk and left her a threatening note. 

Barnett, who proudly referred to himself as a white nationalist on social media, was charged with unlawful entry. He was taken into custody at his home in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Lonnie Coffman, 70, has also been arrested after police found his red GMC pick-up truck near the RNC – where a pipe bomb was left.

He has not been charged over the pipe bomb but cops found two handguns, 11 Molotov cocktails and an M4 carbine assault rifle in his vehicle. 

Some of the assailants have already been identified via social media, including the horned QAnon ‘Shaman’ Jake Angeli and a MAGA fan whose marketing company fired him when they spotted his work lanyard around his neck.

Authorities have launched a huge manhunt across DC and the rest of the country.  

Their failure to arrest the rioters – many of whom had guns and overpowered them – has outraged millions of Americans who compared the soft touch to the harsh crackdown by police on BLM protesters during the summer.

No one has been arrested yet in connection with the death of Capitol cop Brian Sicknick, 42, who died in the hospital after being hit, allegedly in the head, with a fire extinguisher.

‘This is an ongoing investigation we’re working this with our partners to ascertain what happened in that situation.

‘We are 100 percent on it and are getting to those answers,’ FBI Washington Field Office ADIC Steven D’antuono said.

Sicknick was himself a Trump fan who posted on social media about his support of the President.
