It's been months since the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol that left 5 dead and 140 police officers injured. Last week, a bill to establish a commission tasked with investigating barely passed the House, and may not pass the Senate. Meanwhile, at least 400 people who participated in the assault have been arrested and charged with very few people taking plea bargains despite thousands of hours of video proof. This week we discuss why calls for further investigations are being ignored and the impediments to bringing those involved to justice. We also share our thoughts on Zak Snyder's 'Army of the Dead' (Netflix) and the new Angelina Jolie movie, 'Those Who Wish Me Dead' (HBO Max).
Last week the United States was attacked by a mob goaded on by Donald Trump. Walls were scaled, windows were broken, and the Capitol was taken for the first time since the War of 1812. How does the country move on from this moment? This week they talk about all the signs leading up to the event and what (if anything) can and should be done about this dark stain on the country's history.
They also share our thoughts on Pixar's new movie Soul and Ma Rainey's Black Bottom.
