CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Senator Tim Kaine (D) took part in a panel hosted by UVA Center for Politics’ Larry Sabato Thursday, Jan. 6, to discuss the the one-year anniversary of the violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

In addition to Sen. Kaine, Sabato talked with Rep. Liz Cheney (R), CNN’s Jim Acosta, Katie Couric, and several others.

Sabato asked Kaine about seeking justice after the attack, and what that may look like.

“The combination of the House committee, including some Republicans with a backbone - courageous Republicans - state Attorneys General, and the Department of Justice will help us to both get to the bottom of January 6th, but also impose accountability,” Kaine said.

Kaine adds the Department of Justice has been slow, but he trusts it’s being diligent in its prosecutions.
