Prosecuting the Capitol Rioters
Play • 27 min

In the months since a pro-Trump mob breached the walls of the Capitol building, some 420 people have been arrested and charged in connection with the attack. And that number is expected to rise.

Guest: Alan Feuer, a reporter covering courts and criminal justice for The New York Times.
