State of the Union
Jun 12, 2022

First, Dana asks Congressman Jamie Raskin if the January 6th select committee can prove Donald Trump knew he lost the 2020 election while he publicly claimed victory. After, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez joins Dana to answer why she went on Twitter to ask GOP members of Congress if they petitioned Trump for a pardon. Then, Dana sits down with Republican Rep. Chris Jacobs about facing GOP backlash after he expressed support for new gun restrictions. Also, as Americans face record-high gas prices and skyrocketing inflation, Dana asks former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers if there is anything the Biden administration can do to lower gas prices. Plus, former Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords shares her fight to stop gun violence, the kind that almost took her life in an attempted assassination in 2011. 

This week’s panel includes former House Impeachment Manager Delegate Stacey Plaskett, CNN Political Commentator Alyssa Farah Griffin, former Congresswoman Jane Harman, and CNN Political Commentator Scott Jennings discussing inflation and the January 6th hearings.
