Among those who were cleared was Alexander Rubinstein of RT whose charges included “incitement of riots,” independent journalist Matthew Hopard, and documentary producer John Keller.
"Our RT America correspondent has been cleared of all charges," RT said in a statement.
Those arrested during the riot were facing potential prison sentences of ten years and $25,000 fines.

At least six journalists were arrested at the January 20 protest. Evan Engel, a senior producer at Vocativ was among those arrested, but had his charges cleared last week.
"After consultation with the counsel for Mr. Engel, who is a journalist with Vocativ, as well as a review of evidence presented to us by law enforcement, we have concluded that we will not proceed with the charge against this individual," Bill Miller, a spokesman for the District of Columbia office of the US Attorney's office, said in a statement last week.
Two others covering the event, Shay Horse, an independent photojournalist, and Aaron Cantú, a freelance journalist and activist, are still charged with felony rioting.
The office has not publicly commented on their status.
