Prosecutors Prepare for Court Battle Over Capitol Riot Testimonies

The Justice Department’s investigation into the Capitol Riots continues. Prosecutors are preparing to fight in court to force former White House officials to testify about former President Trump’s actions around January 6th. Prosecutors expect Trump to use executive privilege to shield some information from the federal grand jury but Attorney General Merrick Garland has made clear that Trump is not beyond the reach of the investigation because of his status as a former president.
