On January 6, the most sacred symbol of American democracy was stormed by supporters of Donald Trump, unleashing violence and destruction. As lawmakers gathered to certify the election results, Trump’s inflammatory ‘stop the steal’ rhetoric fanned the flames on an already fevered atmosphere. This gripping account of the insurrection is told by eyewitnesses in vantage points around the Capitol Building, watching as the riot gathered pace and the mob broke through barriers to reach the politicians trapped inside. Award-winning reporter Sarah Ferguson confronts some of those who answered the President’s call to overturn the election result, and those who loyally served Donald Trump at the very highest level. With President Biden in the White House, the Republican party continues to grapple with its political future. Defeated, disgraced, and now twice-impeached, Donald Trump may be out of office, but the anger he unleashed continues to threaten.
