Manage episode 317505163 series 2326567
The Justice Department brought seditious conspiracy charges against 11 defendants, including the leader of the Oath Keepers related to the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Juliette Kayyem is a former assistant secretary at the Department of Homeland Security and a CNN National Security Analyst. She tells Anderson Cooper why the indictment is a “good news story.”
Plus, the House committee investigating the January 6 riot issued four subpoenas to giant social media companies after they provided “inadequate responses” to the initial voluntary request for documents and information. Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin is a member of the committee. He joins AC360 to discuss the new subpoenas and says they’re interested in finding out “what exactly took place and what America needs to do to fortify our institutions” against another nightmare like the insurrection.
