Tennessee Attorney General Herbert H. Slatery III has joined a bipartisan coalition of 50 states, territories and the District of Columbia, in sending a letter to Acting U.S. Attorney General Jeffrey A. Rosen condemning the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol and stating such actions cannot be allowed to go unchecked. “What occurred January sixth was an assault on the very foundation of our republic. It threatened the rule of law and how we all, Republicans, Democrats and Independents, should be able to peacefully engage in government,” Slatery said. In related news, NBC News reports that Adam Piper, executive director of the Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA), has resigned after news broke of the group’s involvement in a rally that took place earlier in the day last Wednesday.
