A year after the riots in Congress, 30 percent of Americans still believe the 2020 election was a fraud. Can democracy recover?
Even a year later, most Americans could not agree on what to call the events that took place on January 6, 2021 at the American Capitol.

Host Steve Clemons talks to Democratic Congressman Joaquin Castro, who barricaded himself in his office that day, and Republican strategist John Feehery about the lasting consequences of January 6th.
