Garland Pledges Prosecutions In Capitol Attack

“Merrick Garland, President Joe Biden’s nominee for attorney general, is pledging he’ll take the lead in prosecuting participants in the mob that attacked the Capitol on Jan. 6,” Bloomberg reports.
Said Garland: “If confirmed, I will supervise the prosecution of white supremacists and others who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6 — a heinous attack that sought to disrupt a cornerstone of our democracy: the peaceful transfer of power to a newly elected government.”
Garland also signaled he’ll make decisions independently from Biden: “The president nominates the attorney general to be the lawyer — not for any individual, but for the people of the United States.”
