WASHINGTON — Amid the sea of troubling facts, arrests and iconic images that have emerged in the days since the assault on the Capitol, one element remains largely absent: reassurances from some of the nation’s top national security officials.
Neither the acting attorney general, Jeffrey A. Rosen, nor the F.B.I.
director, Christopher A. Wray, has appeared at the type of high-profile news conference that typically marks a major criminal investigation, instead issuing news releases.
Mr. Rosen also called for calm and vowed to fully investigate the violence, but the comments came in a video posted by the Justice Department on YouTube around midnight.
Chad F. Wolf, the departing acting secretary of homeland security, was in the Middle East during the siege and did not return until later in the week.
