a visa mix up. ah, i bring gov to our viewers watching on p b. s in the united states into all of you around the world. welcome. it was a spectacle which shocked america and the world, a mob storming the u. s. capital, the seat of the federal government in an attempt to stop the certification of the 2020 presidential election a year to the day since those shocking events. president jo by today launched an outspoken attack on the rioters. and on his predecessor, he accused donald trump and spinning a web of wives to prevent the peaceful transition of power. and he said the rioters held a dagger to the throat of democracy, but he said they did not prevail tight security.
9:03 pm
for a dark anniversary, american leaders monkey day of remembrance at capitol hill, exactly one year after riotous storm, the building supporters of former president donald trump had sought to overturn the election result. after the former president made false claims of election fraud. we fight like hell. one year on president biden condemned the riotous and their attempts to undermine american democracy in west prison. they fail on this day. remember us, make sure that such attack never never happens again for the 1st, but he focused his strongest words on one target, in particular, not form a president, mcdonald trump. he tried to prevent, the former president, united states of america has created and spread a web of lies by the 2020 election. he's done so because he values power
9:04 pm
over principle. and because his bruised ego matters more to him than our democracy or our constitution. after a year of largely ignoring his predecessor orders, biden decided to take the gloves off when he's not just a former president. he's a defeated former president, defeated by a margin maurer, 7000000 of your votes. in a written statement off to the speech, trump accused biden of using his name to further divide america. calling the speech political theatre, and a distraction from biden's failures. the speaker of the house of representatives, nancy pelosi led a minutes of silence. remembering the security personnel whose deaths have been attributed to the attack because of them and our members, walter action tailed, this small event was attended by only 2 republicans,
9:05 pm
highlighting the deep partisan divisions that remain in america's polarized 2 party system. my 1st guest tonight is professor robert pape. he's a political analyst of chicago university and he specializes in political violence professor. it's good to have you on the program. you've been spending the past year, analyzing the capital insurrection with findings that you call deep, divisive and disturbing. and i want us to walk through just some of the highlights of these findings. for our viewers, you surveyed hundreds of people and i look, we've got them up here on the screen for our viewers, you surveyed hundreds of people who were arrested in the riot and you found almost 90 percent had no previous links to a militia group. almost all of them had a job in many of those were business owners or white color workers, fewer than 10 percent were unemployed. and you found that the majority, 52 percent were from county's comfortably won by joe biden. in the election.
9:06 pm
i mean, those numbers, professor, they, they are not, i guess, for an international audience looking at this. they don't seem intuitive. how do you explain them? they are part of the mainstream. so we are used to thinking of right wing extremism or extremism in general, as coming from the fringes of society. and in fact, when we look at who have been right wing perpetrators of violence in the united states and in most other western countries over the past many number of years, they do look like they come from the margins of society. 25 percent unemployed. often 50 percent have relationships in gangs and other militant groups. what we see on january in this attack on the capital is a very different picture. it is coming from mainstream america. in fact,
9:07 pm
many of these folks have much to lose. so these are folks who have little to lose and therefore take risks. this is really quite disturbing because these are folks in the mainstream of america. so talk to me a little bit about what is motivating them be because you just don't get up one morning and decide to go and attack the u. s. capital and overthrow an election result. well, you can really see what's motivating them in the court records. so with a research team at the university of chicago, we studied thousands of pages of the hundreds and hundreds of people been arrested their records. and they say one thing over and over again. it is to stop the certification of the election for joe biden. and to install and restore donald trump to the presidency, and they're willing to use bombs to achieve those goals. so in the course documents,
9:08 pm
they're really very clear about their reasoning and their motives. they say they're following up their orders of their president, president trump, and was this a one off event or are you concerned? as many commentators have been warning us this week that this may have just been the beginning of a very violent period for american democracy. i am concerned this is not a one off we have conducted nationally representative surveys of the u. s. public for months now. and many of the commentators you're referring to are talking about are see post surveys, which we conducted in the summer and the all now others have done other surveys to confirm the results. what are those results? fully? 21000000 people in the united states believe to radical beliefs. one that joe biden,
9:09 pm
to know a gentleman, president, and 2, that the use of force is justified to restore donald trump to the presidency. these are exactly the same as the insurrection that animates on january day. and what that means is, there are 21000000 who sympathized with those who installed the capital on january 3rd. moreover, 2000000 of the 21000000 report having attended a, in the last 12 months or 1000000 that they have prior military, 38000000 that they got. this is large, active, and dangerous. and so, as we go forward in the 2022 election fees, and we have to be concerned jumping into what hinder and what do you think you say, tinderbox, what are you expecting for the mid term elections in november? and i guess i have to ask you to, for the presidential election coming up in 2024,
9:10 pm
we have to be concerned to replace the stolen action violence. we care. best way to understand that 21000000 is that these, this is combustible material, much the way dried brushes, combustible in wildfire season that can be touched off by lightning strikes, or sparks well with political violence. we can't predict the lightning strike or the spark. what we can do is measure and assess the size of the combustible material. that's what scholars like me do. and what we see in the united states is a large mass of combustible material. we've. this has been shown multiple times in our university of chicago project on security and threats. nationally representative surveys. now we have multiple new agencies this week. see the washington post nbc, all doing independent polling,
9:11 pm
confirming our results. that's why so many commentators are saying are expressing this concern. it's because the fact that we have multiple poles done in place confirming the same results means there's reality to this problem. yeah, and it also speaks to what the us president said today in his speech that this really is a battle for the soul of america. what kind of america americans want their country to be and become professor pate. we appreciate your time in your insights tonight. this is valuable context. thank you. absolutely. thanks for having images of a mom storming the parliament building. they are familiar to many here in germany because it almost happened here to in august 2020, nearly 40000 people in berlin protested against pandemic restrictions. a group of demonstrators breached a security barrier and they stormed the steps of the rice talk. that's the building
9:12 pm
that houses germany's parliament. and what you see here, these are greeny images that were captured by one of the demonstrators. the group reached the entrance before police eventually force them back. unlike in washington, the group was not able to get inside the building. several people brandished flags from germany's imperial pass. those are symbols that are now used by the extreme right here in jer. my next guest led the team of election observers sent by the o. f. c e to monitor the us election back in 2020. michael leak is a member of the jury parliament for the free democrats. he joins me now from southwest germany. mr. lee, it's good to have you with us before we get to the us election. answered today's anniversary. i want to ask you as a german lawmaker about those scenes that we just saw from august 2020, when far right demonstrators stormed the steps of the rice talked. do you think
9:13 pm
there are parallels between the events in washington on january 6 in those that we've seen here in berlin? well, 1st of all, thank you for having me. unfortunately, they are up harold's, and we can see it with some state elections in germany. and even in the powers of our bonus tag elections, people from extreme right wing political parties tried to exploit what happens in the united states and really working on conspiracy theories. and there is a very, very close connection of both intellectual and political between what's happening, what was an alarm bell was ringing the alarm bell and what we saw in bic, over syndrome. and how do you explain to mr. lee, that things here are not as polarized and extreme as what we see in the u. s. y of germany. still getting more, i guess of, of the, of the middle ground when it comes to politics. well,
9:14 pm
thank god we have an electoral integrity which has been respected by all sides of the political spectrum. but increasingly, so we really understand that we need to defend this. it's very important that the general public has trust in what's happening in electro administration. and we do that basically in a way which is not so much different from the u. s. we have a local electric ministration, which is very powerful, which is very strong. and we have mutual control. but once that system breaks away, when one site in the case of the u. s. president, trump, for president trump disputes the electoral integrity than the whole system was threatened. and that is what we need to defend in germany. we still have it and we are very concerned to follow the developments in the united states, which is our closest allies. now we really hope that there is a way forward that the next connections, the midterms,
9:15 pm
will see more the bipartisanship in again, administrating the selections. but you're very concerned of the 1st signals we see . i want to play for you. part of what she was president biden said today about the election of 2020. take a listen. the truth is that no real action, no action in american history, has been more closely scrutinized. one more carefully counted every legal challenge . questioning the results in every court in this country could have been, may, was made and was rejected. so is biden right? mister lincoln, me, what did you take away? you observed the election in 2020? well, we observed and when to say we let it. so the organization for security and cooperation in europe, where, where the united states is part of it. and electoral observation is it's,
9:16 pm
it's the landmark, the trademark activity of the o. c. we observed, according to a very, very proven and independent methodology. and we could not see any manipulation of the elections in united states and even more so as president barton and put it, the court, the court system in the united states checked proved and again and again, these elections, we cannot see any manipulation what we can see in united states is that there should be improvements of the system, it should be easier to vote. voter registration should be made easier, but that form and pollution. well, mr. like, what do you say then, to so many republicans in the us who still believe the big law and say that the vote was stolen. the election was still actually a, talked to a lot of republican colleagues and in the u. s. congress as well both in the house on the senate side. and we really worked in detail on the report which we gave us
9:17 pm
in the national parliamentarians. we have had a very, very fruitful exchange and, and my hope is that after some initial exchanges, that there is a general understanding that they really need to work to, to, to accept what has been done. for example, in georgia by secretary of state reference burger. in georgia, who did a great job in administrating these elections. so what we try to do is really to explain these conspiracy theories regarding the elections are wrong that they are invented and they are groundless. michael league from the free democrats, a member of the german parliament as well. mr. lee, we appreciate your time and your valuable interaction. i thank you. thank you so much are. let's take a look now at some of the other stories that are making headlines around the world . police and sudan if use tear gas against thousands of demonstrators demanding of transition to civilian rule. there are reports that at least one protest was killed
