U.S. Attorney for the District of Hawaii for the United States Department of Justice Kenji M. Price releases statement on siege of U.S. Capitol

HONOLULU, Hawaii – “I strongly condemn the assault on democracy that unfolded before our eyes yesterday at the very heart of the Nation’s capital. I’ve devoted much of my professional life—both as a uniformed service member and prosecutor—to protecting and defending the rule of law, our institutions, and, most importantly, the safety and security of those who reside in this great country. The acts of those who attacked the Capitol—and more importantly, attempted to stop the process by which free people determine who will lead this Nation during the years that lie ahead—contravene the very principles that scores of public servants like me stand for and have, at times, risked life and limb to defend.

As Acting Attorney General Jeffrey A. Rosen said earlier today, ‘The Department of Justice is committed to ensuring that those responsible for this attack on our Government and the rule of law face the full consequences of their actions under the law.’ My office condemns this unlawful behavior and will conduct or assist in conducting any investigation or prosecution with an appropriate nexus to our jurisdiction.”
