If you've ever wondered how much the attack on the U.S. Capitol cost, now we have an answer. 

Federal prosecutors said the Jan. 6 insurrection caused $1.5 million in damages. 

The Justice Department revealed the cost in a letter to a lawyer for Paul Hodgkins who pleaded guilty on Wednesday to obstructing an official proceeding.

Prosecutors have indicated they want those who are accused of participating to foot the bill.

Hodgkins was asked to pay $2,000 in restitution to the Justice Department. It's unclear how investigators came up with that number.
