US Capitol riot: Biden, Harris reflect on anniversary of Jan. 6 events | FULL
U.S. President Joe Biden and Vice-President Kamala Harris delivered remarks from the National Statuary Hall in the Capitol building on the one-year anniversary of the Jan. 6 attack.
Biden said Thursday, without mentioning him by name, that former president Donald Trump put his desire for power above the country's democracy as he watched the attack happen.
"He has done what no president in American history, the history of this country, has ever, ever done. Refused to accept the results of an election and the will of the American people," said the president.
Harris also reflected on the events of that day, pointing out the "dual nature" of democracy: its fragility and its strength.
On Jan. 6, 2021, supporters of the former president stormed the Capitol complex in a failed attempt to stop the certification of Electoral College votes that officially delivered Biden's election victory.
On Wednesday, Attorney General Merrick Garland said the Justice Department is "committed" to bringing all those who played a part in the attack to justice, but cautioned that the investigation will take time and that they "must collect the evidence."
