8:06 pm
u.s. capitol where one year ago supporters of former president donald trump attacked police broke windows and carried the confederate flag for the first time in our history. president. have not just lost an election. he tried to prevent the peaceful transfer of power. as a violent mob breached the capitol. the president forcefully blamed his predecessor for the attack and pushed back on his claims about the election results. you can't love your country only when you when vice president kamala harris was still a senator at the time and stressed, it wasn't clear then how the attack would end. how close we came to an election over turned. the fertility of democracy, harris and her colleagues alternately return to the capitol later that night to certify the election results which house speaker nancy pelosi, one of the riders main targets, said proved their efforts failed. the congress because of the courage of all the view rose
8:07 pm
to oath and protect our democracy. republicans largely kept a low profile thursday with many of them in georgia for the funeral of their former colleague, senator johnny isaacson. this week, trump canceled his own january 6 event but released a statement reviving his attack on president biden and the democratic party accusing them of rigging the election. and beyond the speeches, moments of silence and prayer vigils, the house committee investigating the attack wants to show the american people exactly what happened that day a series of public hearings. >> and the members hope to start holding them in the next coming months in washington. i'm jessi tenure. >> the events that took place on january 6 started as a rally and then ended as an attack. we have been reflecting on that tragic day here at kron for joining us now with more insight tonight, our political analyst michael yaki. michael, thank you for being with us. i just watched a documentary looking back at that day and it's still chilling to see what happened in the nation's capital. how
8:08 pm
do you think president biden's remarks will be received today, especially in light of the fact that the nation is still so divided and those who would need to hear it really don't believe him. >> thank you, care. and for having me here tonight, you know that i think what the president said today. for a lot of americans was a little bit long overdue. the fact is that what happened a year ago was the culmination of weeks of education and i and in fact, planning by the former president and his allies to try and effectively overturn the will of of other voters and and a victory margin of 7 million, 7 million americans. so what were remembered with the president was trying to make us remember in strong, really strong language. the fact that someone mainly. tried to steal an election that that they lost. and this is something can't forget. and we have
8:09 pm
think about going forward, especially when you see that there's a lot of efforts in. state legislatures around this country to make it easier to try to overturn the will of the voters, something that i think congress needs to address and should address in the coming months. >> michael seems a long-term problem with this whole situation is large number of republican voters who simply don't believe that anything bad happen, that the election was stolen from president trump the president was justified in doing what he did there still standing behind him. but as we move into hearings that are going to be televised later on and we start seeing some more prominent republicans stepping up and actually calling out things that happened. you know, stephanie grisham, the white press secretary towards the end of his administration. apparently there she's with a group of other high-profile republicans who are in the white house. we have detailed information about exactly what happened and they're willing
8:10 pm
to testify. do you think that might start a shift, at least with some republicans who acknowledged, ok, maybe this was wrong. >> one would hope one would hope that more than would have turned up today. liz cheney and her father, the former vice president, cheney, who is no friend of democrats and democrats are no friends of his, but he can the show his solidarity for that constitution and the fact that this is the united states of america, it is not the united. cult of trump, which is what some of these people want see happen. but i think that. you're going to need these hearings are going to need them to be. to be covered. you're going to need people to be there testifying on behalf or republican been republicans for quite some time and to telling the truth. and the truth is not going to be pretty. it's not going to be it's going to be very hard to hear but it's something that is necessary for all of us to
8:11 pm
go through and understand what was going on. because like i said, this wasn't just the insurrection of january 6, it january 6 morse, the combination of the rage, all these people we've been stoked for. the big lie and we've been part and organize were part of an effort nationwide to train over turn overturn elections and a half dozen states in this country. so this is something that i hope people listen to. i hope people understand, i hope that will change public opinion. and now it is often not that optimistic. but hopefully, you know, maybe a miracle will happen and people will understand the truth about what happened when the truth is there was an attempt by the former president and his colleagues to overturn the election and and use a right as a means of doing that. you talk about those who were show up that day one year ago. of course, there is another election coming up with the mid terms. >> and so much is happening at the state level in terms of laws dealing with voter
8:12 pm
suppression changing the election. officials hope to make them loyal to trump. >> how was how will democrats, how will democracy be preserved in light of what's happening at the state level that would undermine the very concerns were talking about. >> well, the one with a one note optimism is that these efforts to suppress the votes of people of color of women, of others in this country have been going on for. for at least a decade. and they still
8:13 pm
overwhelming. it's going to be hard for even the supreme court and other courts. the whole lot of these laws. but let's make no mistake. what happened in january 6, 2021 was a efforts really disenfranchise millions of people primarily african-american and latino in places like philadelphia. detroit, phoenix, take away their votes and and make the render them know invoice. they need to come out again in november in order to make a statement to the east, to the legislature's into these laws. they're trying to suppress their ability vote and actually test these efforts in 2020 to 2024, we don't want it. this testing happened that november 2020? 22 is the best way that s a lot of these laws that trying to overturn elections and get it out in the open and see what happens. >> and there's certainly a possibility that republicans could win back the house in 2020 to put an end to the committees that are investigating all of this course. merrick garland at the justice department is
8:14 pm
investigation will continue. michael yaki that we could go on and on about this. there's so much to talk about, but thanks for joining us on this significant anniversary. appreciate it. thanks, michael. thank coming up to there are new efforts by law enforcement to try to get justice for the alameda county sheriff's recruit was shot and killed on an oakland freeway this week. we'll have those details straight ahead. >> and we've got clouds out there now and we've got a chance of rain all the way. we'll talk about it coming up next.
