3:05 pm
don't risk your financial safety by doing something you can't afford. i hate to tell people that because we have been clustered up. some people tighten it so much that they want to scream. we don't know what's going to happen over the summer if inflation will go even higher. judy: you're right about people wanting to get away. is it possible to describe which americans are hit the worst? >> those making minimum wage or just above. if social security is most of the income coming in, even though there was a cost-of-living increase, but it still is in keeping pace with inflation. there are two parts of our
3:06 pm
economy. the people complaining about gas prices, but they can bear that cost. i need you all to stop fussing so much because you can do this. tightening for you is eating out one last time this week. the's the part of the american public that was struggling before the pandemic and they have an inflationary crisis. for them, it might mean having two meals instead of three. and for that population, we have to help them. more funds to food banks. help them out. it may be pay their rent for a couple of months so that we can all get through this. what can people do? you can do something. to whom much is given, much is required. help some folks out. give to charities helping feed the poor and helping people with housing. that is how we will get through this together.

3:10 pm
president trump is responsible for the capitol riot's. a primetime production including some never before sn footage of the january 6 capital attack. at the house committee investigating the assault, they held their first public hearing presenting nearly a years worth of work to the american people. from the start, bennie thompson of mississippi made clear this was no spontaneous riot. >> january 6 was the culmination of an attempted coup. a brazen attempt as one rider put it -- riot her -- rioter put it, to overthrow the government. the violence was no accident. >> we will walk down to the capital. >> and one man refused to accept
3:11 pm
the 2020 election results. >> donald trump was at the center of this conspiracy. >> in clip after clip of some of the hundreds of interviews, those closest to mr. trump revealed they knew his claims of election fraud wereaseless and told him so. >> i made it clear i did not agree that the election was stolen. you can't live in a world where the incumbent administration stays in power based on its view unsupported by scific evidence that there was fraud in the election. >> it affected my perspective. i accepted what he was saying. >> he continue to lie about a stolen election.
3:12 pm
>> we will never take back our country with weakness. >> inspiring the crowd to attempt to stop the peaceful transfer of power. in an edited compilation, they showed the rage and vlence unfolding outside the capital. while inside, a picture of panic. staffers fleeing the office of republican house minority leader kevin mccarthy. one of two republicans on the panel of nine that was ousted from her party's leadership for taking part. >> i say this to my republican colleagues defending the indefensible. there will come a day when donald trump is gone. your dishonor will remain. among the revelations, she said republicans including scott perry contacted the white house
3:13 pm
seeking presidential pardons for their roles in attempting to overturn the 2020 election. and then president trump response to calls for violence. >> the chants to hang mike pence, the president responded with, "maybe our supporters have the right idea. mike pence deserves it." >> caroline edwards, and one of the first knocked unconscious. she fought to hold off the mob. >> i saw a war scene. it's like something out of the movies. i cannot believe my eyes. there were officers on the ground. they were bleeding.
3:14 pm
they were throwingp. i saw friends with blood all over their faces. i was slipping in people's blood. >> a filmmaker documenting the participation of far-right extremist groups the proud boys. >> for anyone who did not understand how violent that event was, i saw it. i documented it. >> he spoke with judy woodruff earlier today. >> when we arrived at the mall, we encounter the proud boys already moving toward the capital. what we documented was them walking in a very concerted fashion toward the capital. and there were 200 to 300 cowboys -- proud boys, which was more than what i expected. judy: and so this notion that
3:15 pm
the attack on the capital was completely spontaneous, they just wanted>> i wld agree with e everett diet plan, the roadmap -- erudite roadmap that this was not a spontaneous event. i saw a proud boy with a baseball bat. you can see another proud boy with a flagpole that turns out to be an ax handle. they were wearing tactical gear. they had all sorts of offensive weapons with them. why would someone bring a baseball bat to a political rally? >> it was carried by every major network except for fox which aired occasional ups, not
3:16 pm
including footage of violence. hosts dismissed the theater -- the hearing as theater. >> i think most americans are sick and tired of the politicization that you are seeing by the democrats to try to change the subject. american people are angry about what joe biden, nancy pelosi, and the far left socialist agenda has done to people. not this hollywood production. >> even former president trump issued a barrage of commentary online. in the current president devote -- invoked how the dangers are ever present. >> it's important for the american people to understand what truly happened. and the same forces remain at work today. >> the committee will lay out additional findings and five more hearings. they argue showing coordination among the attackers, including
3:17 pm
how the president pressured the department of justice to overturn a legitimate election. >> opposition is nearly unanimous from house republicans that have attacked the work as a legitimate and politically motivated. lisa spoke earlier with a member of the republican leadership for his reaction. >> jim banks was kevin mccarthy's leader. house speaker nancy pelosi blocked his appointment. they also chaired the republican study committee. and representative banks joins me now. how do you see the hearing last night and the work that the committee is doing? >> last night was no different from what we have seen before. it was a political exercise that
3:18 pm
was focused more on the democrats obsession with donald% trump than anything at all about capital security or investigating the events that led up to january 6 so we can prevent something like that from ever happening again. i was disappointed there were not pacific westerns and issues raised last night as there has been throughout all of the activities that addresses the concerns of rank and file capitol police officers who tell me that they weren't prepared for what happened because of a break and how intelligence was gathered and disseminated. they weren't equipped to because they had outdated, faulty, and expired equipment. and they weren't trained for a riot at the capitol. those of the types of answers that if i were the ranking member, that's what we would've focused on. >> i know you're leading a separate investigation and we look forward to what you want to look at and the security concerns. i want you to answer t main thrust of what the january 6
3:19 pm
committee is saying here. they are charging president trump was central to what they call a multistep conspiracy to overturn the election results and in causing january 6 itself. does president trump there any responsibility? >> last night, what you saw, was a series of selectively edited interviews he had they recorded all of these interviews but did not present the american people with any evidence that actually shows donald trump directed the attack on the capital. they didn't present it because they don't have it. i can't get over that and the president's speech that day, he told his supporters to go down to the capital and patriotically and peacefully make your voice heard. there hasever been evidence brought forward that shows he did anything other than that. he did not directly attack or tell people to attack the capital or break into the capital. there is no evidence he did that.
3:20 pm
>> i do hear your words that he did not direct an attack on the capital. he did not say please go break into the u.s. capitol. we are a place where we can have room for nuanc and we are careful with wording. does he bear any responsibility? >> i can't get past the lines in his speech where he told his supporters to go down to the capital and peacefully and patriotically make your voice heard. what i love about washington, d.c., is a place where you can go protestnd make your voice heard. exercise your constitutional rights. a lot of people came to washington, d.c., who came to support a president. i have those same concerns. because of covid leading up to election day, people were upset.
3:21 pm
they came to washington to regier that. that is very american for people to d that. there were people that broke into the capital and were violent and they should be prosecuted. the fbi has arrested hundreds of them as they should. they should be held to a very high standard. >> liz cheney said last nighto those defending president trump that there will be a day when president trump is gone, but your dishonor will remain. she believes this is a real danger to the country. how do you reflect on the longer-term implications higher than your duty to your party. >> he will be the arbiter of whether i keep -- the select
3:22 pm
committee has already been caught. they doctored and alter text from jim jordan. it was very theatrical the way that the committee hearing was conducted last night. they selectively edited pieces and parts of the interview and that is dishonorable. it is dishonorable that this wasn't a bipartisan effort to get the facts and finding. there have been 100,000 pages of evidence and they only selectively offered the american people a very small part of it. and to me, that ultimately is very dishonorable. >> do you agree there was no significant fraud in the 2020 election? >> i base my vote to object on how states conducted the election without the approval of
3:23 pm
their state legislatures. i believe it deserved greater scrutiny and debate. i have never once talked about a stolen election. it was about the way that states , using covid as an excuse, went to all mail-in ballots. with how ballots were collected on election day without the approval of the state legislature. >> you are not seeing the election was stolen, there are process concerns you have. thank you for joining us. judy: for more takeaways, we turn to a member of the select committee that turn to a league impeachment manager. he is maryland democratic representative jamie raskin. thank you for joining us. what do you think the committee accomplished with last night's hearing.
3:24 pm
>> the whole plot of the insurrection was a big lie. including attorney general william barr, the white house counsel, all of them said this was nonsense. and yet he proceeded anyway and engaged in a seven part plan to try to strip joe biden of his lawful majority. he tried to usurp the will of the american people and replace the will of a sitting president that wanted to seize the presidency and become an autocrat. ayrov theeo thi st nhthat the way inhich e cause, and there were domestic violent extremist groups that came together to overthrow the election and to
3:25 pm
engage in insurrection violence. >> what do you say to republicans that are saying that the committee used selectively edited videos, that it was mainly theatrical and that you really didn't prove anything with regard to president trump directing what happened at the capitol. >> they've been over it with a fine tooth comb and they can't come back and challenge a single fact or piece of evidence. they have to call the whole thing a sham which is meaningless. they tried that in court. they -- it is a lawfully composed bipartisan entity.
3:26 pm
and we are in the essential legislative work trying to investigate an assault on the constitutional order itself. the first rule of thumb for a democratic government is survival and self-preservation against those that would tear it down. it is sad because as we've been able to show already, a lot of them are upset about what happened. they are begging the president to act and they are tough on the president. then a few days later, donald trump brought them all backnto line. judy: one point the republicans continue to make his house speaker nancy pelosi, bolstering what security the capitol police were able to provide. what is the response to that?
3:27 pm
>> that is utterly false and baseless. we explain as best we can the national guard's response was so slow but it is the president of the united states that oversees the army which oversees the national guard. that is a bizarre argument for them to make. they are throwing up a lot of ridiculous stuff because they don't want to focus on the essence of this investigation. they refused to accept his defeat and decided to disseminate propaganda about this big lie and work in a bunch of different ways to try to illegitimately undermine and destroy his opponent's victory.
3:28 pm
judy: given how divided the country is politically, how do you expect to change the minds of millions of americans who today believe former president trump that the election was stolen? >> it is divided because of this. because there has bee this, administered by republicans, democrats, and independence. it's not just on the shoulders. it's a responsibility of everybody, paris to talk to their kids and teachers to talk to their students to explain how constitutional democracy works and that there is a difference between fact and fiction. there is a difference between truth and lies and conspiracy theories. in the struggle to defend democratic institutions is
3:29 pm
interwoven with the struggle to arrive at the truth and tell the truth to the people. judy: representative jamie raskin of maryland. >> it is always a pleasure to be with you. judy: with new light cast on the events before, during, and after the attack on the capital, let's turn to the analysis of brooks and capehart. david brooks and jonathan capehart, associate editor for the washington post. thank you for being here. let's pick up where we left off listening to where we go. where did this all go?
3:30 pm
>> the hearing? it was a good opening act and i don't mean that in a derogatory sense. this is the first hearing of many that we are going to see. congressman banks assertion that videos were edited and they presented no evidence is an incredibly long limb to walk out on considering we did not know yet what the committee will be presenting in the subsequent hearings. the express concern about the capitol police officers, the training and everything, it is a well-placed concern. but he voted against the covid package. it was bugging me as i watch that interview. in terms of the hearing, it is incredibly important for the
3:31 pm
american people to know from a legislative body that has been investigated for more than a year, what they found out about how close we came to losing our democracy. who was responsible. who was involved. and to see with our own eyes the trump administration officials talking about these events was chilling. it was an attention grabber. maybe i have heard this before or maybe i know this story, that's not the point of this hearing. the point is to place a marker for history so that people decades down the road will have a record about what happened on january 6, 2021. judy: the white house
3:32 pm
correspondent for your newspaper called it the most damming indictment ever presented against a president. >> yeah, listen. january 6 was shocking. it is shocking to live through. to hear them, to see the widows of those who died during and after. it is a shocking thing. i am curious about two things. i was surprised how central they put trump. a seven-stage conspiracy. it puts the onus on the justice department to indict him for sedition. that was the case they made. so if we have a congressional hearing committee that shows this and we don't indict the guy , what are we doing? they are not the indict-itis but
3:33 pm
it puts a lot of onus on the justice department to either undermine or make him responsible. judy: they word -- they use the word coup. this was a coup. did they do what they intended to do? >> i think the committee is fundamentally ill pointed. i care a lot about what happened on january 6, but i care more about it happened on january 26 2025 and 2029. they should be paying attention to that. right now, there are tens of millions of people who think the election was stolen. who think violence is justified. and a lot of them are running for officat local levels. how big are they? what threat are they? and how should we understand the threat to the next january 6?
3:34 pm
i thought they were a little too parochial. this is not just happening here. the party looks a lot like turkey and hungary. this was social conditions. how close are we to violence? what is violence supposed to look like? i would elect to see a committee that focuses on the future and preventing a disaster, not a committee focusing on who was texting mark meadows when. >> these are excellent points and these would be great questions that could be investigated and approved by a senate committee. while the house january 6 committee is also doing its investigation. both of these things are important. we have to remember that the name of the committee is the
3:35 pm
house select committee to investigate the attack on the u.s. capitol. i know i've got it wrong, but it's very specific. that's why they are looking at text messages, phone messages, video messages. these are global issues. but these are the united states. the world looks to american democracy as a model for how they should behave. if we do not learn the who, what, where, why, and how we came so close to losing it, then we won't be prepared for what uld happen in 22, and most definitely in 2024. what we could find is that
3:36 pm
january 6, 2021 was the dress rehearsal for 2024. i would like to see the breadcrumbs before we get to that point. >> it would be nice if there was a committeeoi tngheno such comm. choosing how to organize the committee, the people had a decision to make. the leader made the decision how to organize it. nobody is making that decision. nobody is focusing on the future threats. i think a couple things happened. one is that people got watergate in their minds. watergate was a scandal that happened in private. who said what to who in the noble off -- in the oval office? donald trump did what he did in public and those people were violent in public. we know all that. i think the committee has usefully put it together and move the ball from the 95 yard
3:37 pm
line to the 99 yard line. they have not answered the chasm questions. >> we will need to go back and understand -- are you saying we don't need to go back and understand? >> no, i'm not against that. but if you'reunning the government, what is your priority right now? preventing what she just said. in the middle of all this, they were using this to focus attention on the midterms. it is small minded and ineffective. to me, the little bit of politics does seem to have crept in. >> this is so aggressive through
3:38 pm
a political lens. i care to know the details. because we need to know what happened as a warning for what could come sooner rather than later. millions of americans are concerned that january 6, 2021 was a prelude to something infinitely more dangerous than the danger that we saw. judy: one other issue i want to ask both of you aut is gun legislation. i know you both have talked about it. the house has voted some measures.
3:39 pm
>> i am a little hopeful that we will see something. john cornyn, the republican from texas is negotiating and saying hope things. maybe it will happen. if we have red flag laws and raise the purchasing age, that would be a step. a significant step and nothing to be ashamed of. will it happen? chris murphy, i read his quotes everyday. >> i am always hopeful. i have seen this movie too many times before. if you can't get expanded background checks which was the one thing joe manchin and pat toomey were trying to get done
3:40 pm
after newtown, they could not get that done. now the focus is on red flag laws and raising the minimum age. i'm glad senator cornyn is at the table. i'm glad senator mitt romney is hopeful about it and has changed his position. but until they do it. until i see the press release, the press conference, the vote in the senate, i will reserve judgment. i want them to prove me wrong. prove me wrong, senate. judy: to parents who lost their children across the country, people who lost emily members, what do they say -- family members, what do they say? >> that is on them. seriously, that is on them if they can't talk to these families. we just saw hearings this week
3:41 pm
from buffalo survivors, uvalde, parents pouring out their soul. judy: the mother that just brought her back to school after an appointment. she made the honor roll and she was gone. it is hard. jonathan capehart, david brooks, thank you. ♪ as the war in ukraine grinds on from its fourth month, the fight the eastern donbass continues. relentless russian shelling and ukrainian counter strikes have laid waste to vast swaths ofhe region. the daily struggle for those that are still there and their loved ones who have left his amounts. -- is immense. >> the brutal battle for the
