The January 6th Committee presented new evidence at the final hearing that proved former President Donald Trump knew he lost the election and conspired to overturn the election results.

However, even with this new evidence, will the minds be swayed of so many Trump supporters who still believe the election was stolen? What is the current state of our democracy when a leader insights a riot after they have lost an election?

We’ll be joined by Harris County’s former Elections Administrator and a professor of political science to help us analyze the evidence and determine where we go from here as a country for future elections.
