    Alex Holder is a filmmaker who got behind-the-scenes access to the Trump family and their allies, before, during and after the insurrection. He tells Don about testifying behind closed doors to the Select Committee on his footage, some of which shows inconstancies in Ivanka Trump’s previous statements, what he saw on January 6, and why he believes Donald Trump is partly to blame for the attack on the Capitol.

Plus, the Senate passes its first major federal gun safety legislation in decades, and the GOP allies of Trump who pushed the election fraud lie and then sought presidential pardons.
