Merrick Garland speaks on the Speculation that the DOJ is not doing its Job Concerning the Jan. 6th Riots
"We do not do our investigations in public"
Merrick Garland, the Attorney General, has rejected the belief that the DOJ had no form of action over the January 6th investigation during a meeting. He claimed there is “a lot of speculation over what the department is or isn’t doing.” He also noted the speculation is likely to continue as he mentioned the DOJ does not do its investigations in public.
"This is the most wide-ranging investigation and the most important investigation that the Justice Department has ever entered into. And we have done so because this represents this effort to upend a legitimate election, transferring power from one administration to another. It cuts at the fundamentals of American democracy."
Merrick Garland said.
He added, "We have to get this right. Every person is criminally responsible for trying to overturn the presidential election. However, the process must be carried out with integrity and professionalism.”
