“This is about politics,” said Shields. “That is the answer to the question. [Commission chair] Bennie Thompson just came out and said, we may not just stick to the deadline of the end of the year, we may just keep doing this forever.

If the democrats want to run on ’22 about January 6, which affects no one’s lives in this country every day, Republicans are going to run on securing the border—”
“Hold on, January 6 affects no one’s lives in this country?” cut in Harlow incredulously.

On Wednesday, January 6, 2021, the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C., was stormed during a riot and violent attack against the U.S. Congress. A mob of supporters of President Donald Trump attempted to overturn his defeat in the 2020 presidential election by disrupting the joint session of Congress assembled to count electoral votes to formalize President-elect Joe Biden‘s victory. The Capitol Complex was locked down and lawmakers and staff were evacuated while rioters occupied and vandalized the building for several hours. Five people died either shortly before, during, or after the event: one was shot by Capitol Police, one died of a drug overdose, and three succumbed to natural causes. More than 140 people were injured.
