The case against the Chilcoats relies on several tips, according to 12-page statement of facts filed in U.S. District Court along with the criminal complaint and arrest warrants. A special agent with the FBI assigned to the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force lays out the case against the Chilcoats in that statement.

The tips include photographs, social media posts, video clips, U.S. Capitol Closed Circuit TV recordings and statements from tipsters not identified by name in the charging documents to show that the Chilcoats were part of the group that entered the U.S. Capitol illegally, according to the charging document.
