Johnson Wants More Answers Regarding Jan. 6 Incident

Senator Ron Johnson is holding up a US Attorney nomination because he’s not getting his questions about the January 6th insurrection answered.

Senator Johnson announced on Wednesday that he’s holding up a Senate confirmation vote on the US Attorney position for Washington DC because the Department of Justice hasn’t adequately answered his questions about people arrested in the wake of the insurrection at the US Capitol.

Johnson says those arrested are being treated worse than people arrested in the summer protests in 2020 in the wake of the George Floyd murder. The US Attorney for Washington DC is expected to be handling many of the cases against the January 6th rioters, as well as a possible contempt case against Trump associate Steve Bannon.
