DOJ is constructing a database of images and movies to help regulation enforcement on January sixth
Every single piece of evidence released about the January 6th events only makes things worse. In the past six months it has become clear that intelligence services and police have repeatedly downplayed the threat posed by Trump’s white racist supporters. It became apparent that both the Trump White House and members of Congress were aware of the conspiracies to disrupt the vote count and the threat posed by Mike Pence, Nancy Pelosi and other officials. And it has become clear that instead of curbing these threats, the Republicans have done everything in their power to encourage violence.
“Most of all, we saw that the television coverage of that day gave little indication of the extent of the aggressive brutality used by those who break into the Capitol. Although Republicans in Congress tried to pass the day off as a “tourist visit,” newly released videos continued to show additional incidents of extreme violence.
To ensure that some of these images of attack and destruction don’t fall through the cracks, and to piece the images together into our growing understanding of that terrible day, Politico reports that the Justice Department allocated $ 6.1 million to a database with January 6 information used in ongoing law enforcement.
