This statement comes after the Justice Department secures its first grand jury indictment against two suspects allegedly involved in the Jan. 6 riots.

The suspects are identified as Lonnie Coffman, accused of bringing 11 Molotov cocktails and multiple weapons to the Capitol, and Mark Leffingwell, accused of striking a law enforcement officer.
