Multiple people died in the chaos and several were injured, including Capitol Police officers.

Dozens have been prosecuted for storming the Capitol, and the attack is under investigation by a select House committee that has interviewed numerous figures connected to the day's events, including a rally near the White House that preceded the insurrection.

Washington, D.C., Attorney General Karl Racine (D) earlier Tuesday filed a federal lawsuit against far-right groups Proud Boys and Oath Keepers over their role in the Jan. 6 attack.

Biden has regularly referred to the insurrection at the Capitol on Jan. 6 as a dark day in the nation's history, and he has praised the courage of law enforcement officers who worked to secure the building that day.
