In a speech Wednesday to mark the one-year anniversary of the January 6 attack on the US Capitol, Attorney General Merrick Garland vowed that the actions the department has taken so far to respond to the assault "will not be our last."

"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," Garland said. "We will follow the facts wherever they lead."
