On Wednesday, Attorney General Merrick Garland made remarks to mark the “solemn anniversary” of the January 6th riot at the US Capitol.

Garland stated that “Tomorrow will be the first anniversary of January 6, 2021, when the United States Capitol was attacked, while lawmakers met to confirm the results of a presidential electoral election.” 

He said, “Those involved must face accountability, and there is no higher priority at the Department of Justice.”

Garland also observed silence in honor of the five law-enforcement officers who “responded selflessly” and lost their lives in the attack.

“I know I speak for all of us in saying that tomorrow, and in our work in the days ahead, we will not only remember them — we will do everything we can to honor them,” Garland said.

The attorney general described the Justice Department’s investigation into riots as “one the largest, most complex and most resource-intensive investigations we have ever seen.”

Garland stated that the department had:

More than 5,000 search warrants and subpoenas were issued.

“Everyday since [the riot]We have worked hard to identify, investigate and apprehend all the defendants across the country. And we have done so at record speed and scale — and in the midst of a pandemic during which some grand juries and courtrooms were not able to operate,” Garland said.
