In a 15-minute analysis of the latest in US politics, I joined BBC 5 Live’s Colin Murray on Thursday to discuss the Biden Administration’s handling of Coronavirus and the House select committee pursuing the truth about the Capitol Attack.
We begin with Donald Trump’s bluster about accepting a Coronavirus booster, which backfired when his audience booed him. Then we get serious with how the current Administration has dealt with the pandemic, after Trump’s disinformation and mismanagement, and what Biden is doing about Omicron.
As Trumpists — including GOP legislators — defy subpoenas from the House committee, I explain the story behind the headlines: the scores of witnesses who are cooperating with testimony and documents, and how this is building up the account of Trump’s coup attempt on January 6.
