Garland Rebuts Criticism of Jan. 6 Probe

He said many will still be charged for their involvement

Attorney General Merrick Garland on Wednesday pushed back against criticism of the Department of Justice's response to the Jan. 6 attack, arguing that prosecutors are methodically building cases against the most serious offenders.

Speaking via video link to Justice Department employees nationwide, Garland also suggested that those who did not play a physical role in the insurrection could face charges over their involvement.

"The actions we have taken thus far will not be our last," Garland said. "The Justice Department remains committed to holding all January 6th 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."
