"It is a fitting time to reaffirm that we at the DOJ will do everything in our power to defend the American people and American democracy," said Garland. "We will follow the facts wherever they lead. We understand that there are questions about how long the investigation will take, and about what we are doing. Our answer is, and will continue to be, the same answer we would give with respect to any ongoing investigation: as long as it takes and whatever it takes for justice to be done."

Garland appears completely willing and ready to hold all the perpetrators of the January insurrection accountable.
