On January 6th, 2021, the Capitol of the United States was attacked in an effort to disrupt the process of certifying the recent Presidential election. As chaos mounted, Congress was evacuated and insurrectionists, self-identified 'revolutionaries' roamed freely through the building for hours after overwhelming the woefully understaffed authorities on the scene. Footage and images from the day appear to show some authorities assisting with the breach. Bombs were found at the local RNC and DNC offices. In the first part of this two-part episode, the guys explore the timeline of events--along with the evidence that everyone (except, apparently, local law enforcement) knew a storm was brewing well in advance.
