Today, January 6, 2023, is the two-year anniversary of the insurrection of the U.S. Capitol building. After a number of hearings and hours of interviews and research, the House Select Committee's report on January 6th is now available for the public's review.

We talk with political science professor Bob Stein to analyze and discuss the findings of the January 6th report and try to determine what this means about the state of our democracy and will we see change from the committee's recommendations.

Also, former U.S. Press Secretary Peter Roussel sadly passed away from cancer during the holidays. To watch his interview with Ernie Manouse on the show InnerVIEWS, click here.
