Watch Live: House Jan. 6 Committee Hearing | WSJ

have always felt either a sense of being alert around a cop not to make mistakes or happy that a cop is there nearby to keep me safe. Never have I ever dreamt of assaulting an officer who swore to protect us as long as we are lawful.

It was perhaps the committee’s most compelling argument. 

The video — which included images recorded by participants in the attack, security footage, news footage, audio recordings from police radio communication and police body-camera recordings — tracked the evolution of the violence on that day, from an agitated crowd gathering at the outskirts of the Capitol, through the bloody, forceful invasion of the building. Much of the footage was raw and played at length; the violence was visceral. In one clip, a first-person view from a fallen U.S. Capitol Police officer’s body camera, you can see the mob bearing down, beating the officer mercilessly. To read more go to the link below:
