Attorney General Merrick Garland on Wednesday committed to holding accountable the perpetrators behind the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, while also affirming the Biden administration’s dedication to protecting the “right to every eligible citizen to cast a vote that counts.”

“The Justice Department remains committed to holding all Jan. 6 perpetrators, at any level, accountable under law — whether they were present that day or were otherwise criminally responsible for the assault on our democracy. We will follow the facts wherever they lead,” Garland said at the Department of Justice.

The article goes on to state the following:

Garland recounted a summary of the violence experienced last year when former President Donald Trump called on his supporters to attend a speech outside the White House on Jan. 6, which later escalated into an assault on the Capitol building during Trump’s speech.


Garland emphasized that the DOJ has “no higher priority” than holding those accountable responsible, noting that the events of Jan. 6 has become “one of the largest, most complex and most resource-intensive investigations in our history.”

As part of its investigation, Garland revealed that the department:

  • Issued over 5,000 subpoenas and search warrants
  • Examined over 20,000 hours of video footage
  • Seized control of roughly 2,000 devices
  • Received over 300,000 tips from citizens trying to aid the investigation
  • Arrested 725 people in connection to the events of Jan. 6.
  • Charged over 325 people with felonies

“By now, though, we have charged over 325 defendants with felonies, many for assaulting officers and many for corruptly obstructing or attempting to obstruct an official proceeding,” Garland said.

“The actions we have taken thus far will not be our last,” Garland added.

Garland also sounded the alarm with a claim that public officials remain in danger following the Capitol riot.

“Some have been told that their offices would be bombed. Some have been told that they would be murdered and precisely how.”

Garland’s press conference comes as Democrats and media pundits have been criticizing the AG for what they say is a mild response to the rioters.

The address on the extensive crackdown on those in attendance on Jan. 6 appears to insufficient for some on social media.

“Make no mistake about Garland’s appearance Wed. One year later. We do not have a single indictment from the Justice Department of a major Jan 6. player,” Don Winslow tweeted. “All we’re getting is an in-house speech to staff with more broad promises masquerading as justice.”

Critics appear to be unsatisfied with only the citizens facing indictments and no Republicans or members of the Trump administration.

“I think Merrick Garland has been extremely weak, and I think there should be a lot more of the organizers of Jan. 6 that should be arrested by now,” Rep. Ruben Gallego told CNN Tuesday.

  1. I’m really getting to hate the USA! What about holding them accountable to our laws and constitution, holding individuals without in solitary confinement, refusing lawyers to meet with those individuals. What ever happened to the Right yo a Speedy trial?
    This entire “investigation” is illegal. It’s a Political Prison event.
    Oh, and Trump did NOT break any laws when he told his followers to join in the right to Assembly. He never told anyone to storm the Capitol,
    How about all the destruction Hillary supporters did when Trump beat the cheating algorithm and won? Where is Hillary’s charges for not speaking out to stop them?

  2. I’m sure all the parents speaking at school board meetings has the agency pretty tied up. Maybe it’s the Hunter Biden investigation??? Prosecuting all the domestic terrorists of 2020/2021???

  3. Oh give it up already. They have nothing else to hold to. Just trying to keep our attention on something rather than the disaster they are making for the USA.

  5. So when are all the rioters from 2020/2021 going to be held responsible?! When’s their day in court?! This is a disgusting double standard!! At least the republicans went straight to the people they had an issue with instead of burning homes and businesses that belonged to hard working innocent citizens!
