Attorney General nominee Merrick Garland called the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol “the most heinous attack” on American democracy he has seen, pledging an increased role for the Department of Justice (DOJ) in fighting domestic terrorism.
“I intend to give the career prosecutors who are working on this manner 24/7 all of the resources they could possibly require to do this. And at the same time, I intend to make sure that we look more broadly to look at where this is coming from, what other groups there might be that could raise the same problem in the future,” he said.
Garland said he would help the department make additional arrests beyond the more the 200 that have already faced charges.
