[WATCH] Breaking Down the Newest January 6th Timeline

Despite the lack of a true January 6th Commission, Democrats are pressing on with their investigation into the events of the attack on the Capitol and just what may have gone on behind the scenes during the planning stages. Federal prosecutors have charged more than 400 people in more than 40 states with participating in the January 6th riot, and arrests continue almost daily.

As Republicans desperately try to spin a new reason behind the insurrection–first it was “Antifa and Black Lives Matter dressed as MAGA”, now they’re attempting to blame the FBI for orchestrating the attack and blaming it on Trump supporters–Democrats are learning even more about how miscommunications in the days before the 6th and the deliberate retention of the National Guard.
