The United States Government will commemorate next January 6, when it will mark the first year since the assault on the Capitol by a mob of far-rightists, as “one of the darkest days” of American democracy.
This was indicated this Tuesday at her daily press conference by the White House spokeswoman, Jen Psaki when asked about the anniversary.
“January 6 was one of the darkest days of our democracy. It was a day when our nation’s capital was attacked,” he said.
“There is no doubt – remarked Psaki – that we are going to be seen commemorating that day.”
Psaki, however, avoided elaborating on the planned plans.
Last January 6 was the scene of a mobilization of supporters of then-President Donald Trump that culminated in the violent assault on the headquarters of Congress, in which five people died and 140 agents were attacked.
Protesters stormed the Capitol as a session was underway to confirm the results of the November 2020 elections, in which incumbent Joe Biden prevailed.
Precisely this Tuesday, the prosecutor’s office for the District of Columbia, where Washington is located, filed a lawsuit against the far-right groups Proud Boys and Oath Keepers for the assault that seeks to hold those responsible accountable for the “physical and financial” damages.
In parallel, a committee of the US House of Representatives continues its investigation into why the assault occurred, who was responsible, and what can be done to prevent another similar event.
To that end, he has requested access to previously secret documents and has subpoenaed Trump’s closest allies, including his chief of staff Mark Meadows and former top adviser Steve Bannon, whom he has accused of contempt. for your refusal to cooperate.
