‘Whatever it takes’: Garland promises accountability for Capitol riot
Al Jazeera, 06 Jan 2022
US Attorney General Merrick Garland has promised to ensure justice and accountability for the January 6 Capitol riot, as investigations continue ahead of the one-year anniversary of the deadly attack.
In a news conference on Wednesday, Garland said the US Justice Department will not relent in prosecuting people who broke the law during what he described as an “unprecedented attack” on United States democracy.
The head of the US Capitol Police, J Thomas Manger, testified in front of a US Senate committee on Wednesday as part of its ongoing hearings into oversight of US Capitol Police following the January 6 attack.
