A year ago today, Donald Trump gave a speech to his supporters in which he challenged the election result and encouraged them to march into Congress. The uprising that followed was unlike anything previously seen in American politics. Many hoped that afterwards a line would be drawn in the sand and that politicians would come together in solidarity so that something like this could no longer happen.
But as the head of the Washington DC office of the Guardian, David Smith, Nosheen Iqbal says, this has not happened in the weeks and months since the attack. Instead, two distinct narratives have evolved: those led by the mountains of documentary evidence, and those who are sympathetic to the former president, who downplay the events of January 6 and falsely accuse left-wing agitators.
The Reporter Nick Robins-Early describes the FBI’s extensive investigation into indictments against hundreds of people. He says one of the big unanswered questions at the center of this investigation is how much planning and coordination went into the insurrection.
