Description

In the months since a pro-Trump mob breached the walls of the Capitol building, some 420 people have been arrested and charged in connection with the attack. And that number is expected to rise.

As federal prosecutors prepare for a unique challenge, we look at the twists and turns of bringing those who were in the building to justice.

Guest: Alan Feuer, a reporter covering courts and criminal justice for The New York Times.

Dominic was in the military and the military teaches you thst if your commanding officer asks you to do something that is wrong (like attacking the capital or jumping off a cliff) you do not have to carry out that order. It seems like some laws protect criminals more than they do those who are innocent.
