Nearly three years after the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol and less than one year until the 2024 presidential election, judges, prosecutors and even family members of Capitol insurrectionists are warning of the same "prospects of violence, conspiracy theories and election denialism" ahead of next year's race, according to CBS News.

Per CBS, Cassandra Buteau, the daughter of January 6 rioters Jamie and Jennifer Buteau, wrote a letter to Judge Randolph Moss seeking "leniency" for her parents ahead of their November 20 sentencing, saying they were "fed a 'constant IV drip of lies, misinformation.'"

She wrote, "The biggest lie was the election. A loss that many Trump fans could not accept, in part to do to the persistent, outrageous lies told by so many people in positions of power. From sitting Congress members, to hosts of the highest rated cable TV channel in the country, to the very person they trusted most, the same man currently on pace to be the Republican nominee again in 2024."

Warning of the harm "conspiracy rabbit holes" may cause in the future, Judge Moss said Buteau's letter "might have been one of the most impactful he'd ever read."

Additionally, CBS reports judges and U.S. Department of Justice prosecutors are sounding similar alarms, such as Judge Tanya Chutkan, who is presiding over ex-President Donald Trump's DC criminal case.

"Every day we're hearing about reports of anti-democratic factions of people plotting violence, the potential threat of violence, in 2024," Chutkan said.

"It's instructive that it's the judges who are speaking out about the prospect of violence," U.S. Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), who was a member of the House January 6 investigative committee said, according to CBS.

The news outlet notes prosecutors argued during ex-Trump appointee Federico Klein's January 6 case, "The passions that ignited" the insurrection "have not cooled since then," and "an upward variance would also support the need for 'adequate deterrence.'"

CBS reports Judge Randolph Moss emphasized, "I can't think of any event, other than the Civil War, that has driven people apart as much."
