Ex-US prosecutor believes DOJ will prosecute Trump for coup attempt

Joshua Holland kicks off this week's show with a look at several efforts to sue the Proud Boys and other violent extremist groups into oblivion. 
 
Then we're joined by former Assistant US Attorney Richard Signorelli to talk about some of the recent revelations about events surrounding MAGA's attempted January 6 coup. Signorelli tells us that he's frustrated that the Department of Justice hasn't already pursued charges against Trump but believes that what we've learned from the House's January 6 Select Commission in the past few weeks makes it likely that Trump and other senior officials in his orbit will be charged and ultimately held accountable for their crimes.
 
Then we speak with Heather "Digby" Parton about the Democrats' struggles to get Joe Biden's agenda into the end zone and whether the media have learned any of the vitally important lessons of the past five years.
