This week, the United States will mark one year since the disgraceful and violent Capitol insurrection of January 6, 2020. The culmination of Trump’s ‘Big Lie’ surrounding the 2020 presidential election, last year’s Capitol riots marked a focal point in America’s political polarization and may have brought the country closer to a constitutional crisis than we previously believed.

Jonathan Karl joined Marc and Dany to reflect on the first anniversary of the Capitol riot and discuss the final year of the Trump presidency, the 2020 presidential election, and his recent book “Betrayal: The Final Act of the Trump Show.”

Jonathan Karl is the chief Washington correspondent for ABC News and co-anchor of This Week with George Stephanopoulos. Karl has covered every major beat in Washington, D.C., including the White House, Capitol Hill, the Pentagon, and the State Department. He has reported from the White House under four presidents and fourteen press secretaries. He is a former president of the White House Correspondents’ Association and the author of “Front Row at the Trump Show” and “Betrayal: The Final Act of the Trump Show.”
