Siege Subculture Stories
Friday, 8 January
On the Gist, the assault on the Capitol through extremist corners of the internet.
In the interview, Mike is joined by U.S Rep. Dan Kildee of Michigan’s 5th Congressional District, and Chief Deputy Whip of the House Democratic Caucus. Rep. Kildee was on the House floor when violent pro-Trump extremists overtook the Capitol, causing a lockdown. Kildee shares his experience of what it was like inside the chambers before and after the electoral vote count had been certified, and what he’s hearing from his constituents in Michigan.
In the spiel, we continue our walk through the insurrectionist rampage at the Capitol.
