AG nominee Merrick Garland: Prosecuting Capitol ‘attackers and plotters’ will be priority

United Press International | Feb 23, 2021 | News |

At the first day of his Senate confirmation hearings Monday, U.S. Attorney General-designate Merrick Garland gave a rough outline of some of the things he’d do as the nation’s top law enforcement officer — from prosecuting those who attacked the Capitol last month to weighing federal gun reform policies.

Garland, a former federal prosecutor before becoming a judge on the influential U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., appeared before the Senate judiciary committee for questioning.

During his testimony, Garland said that overseeing prosecution for supporters of former President Donald Trump who were instrumental in attacking the Capitol will be his initial priority.

“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 said in his opening statement.

“The attorney general takes an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies — foreign and domestic.”

Garland added that prosecution likely won’t be limited to those who physically attacked the building, but could also include fundraisers and other organizers for the rally that turned into an assault.

“We will pursue these leads, wherever they take us,” he said.
