House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) on Friday called on the Justice Department to prosecute all those who illegally entered the Capitol during the Jan. 6 riot and to provide detailed information about how it is making charging decisions.
Nadler made the request in a letter to acting attorney general Monty Wilkinson, citing news accounts that prosecutors were only planning to charge a “portion” of those who entered the Capitol.
“It is critical that all of the perpetrators of this insurrectionist attack be identified, investigated, arrested, charged and subsequently prosecuted,” Nadler wrote.
