Joe Biden Addresses Riots, Introduces His DOJ Nominees

“Your loyalty is not to me…it’s to the people of the United States,” Biden said during a press conference on Thursday as he addressed Wednesday’s riots at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, calling the Trump supporters who interrupted the certification of the election “a riotous mob, insurrectionists, domestic terrorists.”

“Don’t dare call them protesters,” Biden said.

Biden also introduced his DOJ nominees.

Merrick Garland will serve as the Attorney General of the United States, Lisa Monaco for Deputy Attorney General, Vanita Gupta for Associate Attorney General, and Kristen Clarke for Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division.
