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).
