Marcy Wheeler: DOJ ’getting closer’ to proving Trump attempted a coup

Joshua Holland kicks off this week's show with a look at yet another example of the right-wing-cop-to-conservative-media feedback loop. This time, it's new revelations about the Seattle police.
 
Then we are joined by legal analyst Marcy Wheeler to talk about the sprawling prosecutorial efforts to bring the perpetrators of the January 6 attack, and the attempted coup surrounding it, to justice. Wheeler pushes back on critics who say the Department of Justice is only focused on bringing the MAGA idiots who stormed the Capitol to justice. (See Marcy Wheeler's taxonomy of the January 6 prosecutions.) 
 
And then Jared Holt, a researcher and journalist who covers right-wing extremism, tells us about how the far-right has changed and adapted in the year since the Insurgency of Dunces. (See Jared Holt's new report, "After the Insurrection.")
