    EP8 - The Storming of the US Capitol

    EP8 - The Storming of the US Capitol

    On January 6 a mob infiltrated the US Capitol building, making it into the House and Senate chamber. Their goal seemingly to interrupt the peaceful transfer of power to Joe Biden after president Donald Trump had repeatedly claimed that he was the true winner of the recent elections and his supporters needed to fight back. The events have been described as an attempt at "coup d'etat" by some and Trump as a "seditionist".



    What Dan and Michael are certain of is this occurrence is another blow to the reputation and credibility of the United States. On the episode they discuss the run out to the events on the January and what they mean for the United States going forward.
