Trump gets rebuked twice after trying to put his finger on the scales. Brian interviews Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) about his thoughts on a number of Republicans testifying for the January 6 committee, including Trump, Kevin McCarthy, and Jim Jordan; how to pass voting rights legislation despite Manchin’s opposition to the filibuster; and his introduction of the National Security Powers Act to finally put the power back in Congress’ hands to declare war. And West Virginia’s Richard Ojeda joins to talk about the best way to deal with his fellow West Virginian Joe Manchin, how Democrats can get elected in red districts and states, and his response – as an Army vet – to conservative pundits mocking law enforcement officials over January 6.
