“President Biden’s pick to lead the Justice Department, Merrick Garland, told lawmakers Monday that the investigation into the Capitol insurrection would be a top priority if he is confirmed as attorney general.
Garland, a widely respected judge who has served for more than 20 years on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, said the attack on the Capitol was the most “heinous attack” on American democracy that he’s ever seen.
“One of the very first things I will do is get a briefing on the progress of this investigation,” Garland said. “I intend to give the career prosecutors who are working on this matter 24/7 all the resources they could possibly require to do this.”
