The January 6 Project considers the legal and policy challenges arising out of the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol, when thousands of President Trump’s supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol during the congressional certification of then-President-Elect Biden’s electoral victory. The homepage of the January 6 Project is here, where you will find significant documents, congressional hearings, case information and other materials related to the attack, in addition to articles and podcasts.

Lawfare senior editor Quinta Jurecic talked with editor-in-chief Benjamin Wittes, executive editor Natalie Orpett, and senior editor Alan Rozenshtein about the substance of the day’s hearing, which focused on President Trump’s efforts to pressure Vice President Mike Pence into overturning the results of the 2020 election.
