Description

This episode contains strong language.

The first hearing of the special congressional committee on the Jan. 6 riots was an emotional affair, but it was not quite the investigation that was originally envisaged.

In January, lawmakers on both sides spoke of putting aside partisanship and organizing an investigation akin to the 9/11 commission, considered the gold standard of nonpartisan fact-finding.

Why did the commission fail and what is taking place instead?

Guest: Luke Broadwater, a congressional reporter for The New York Times.

Wow, was this SO full of demontrable, evidence-based factual errors that I have lost complete faith in anything that is said on this podcast Until now, I had always thought as Congressional reporter you were a reliable source about congress! Your opinion is fine as it is yours but when you get the facts about vote counts and the actual process that is a part of the congressional record so very wrong, how can anyone now take you seriously about anything you say. Shame on Luke Broadwater you for such lazy fact errors.
