As rioters continue to occupy the grounds of the US Capitol building, CNN's Van Jones cautions Americans to take a step back and analyze this moment in history and asked, "Is this the end of something or the beginning of something?"
"Is this the death throes of something ugly in our country, desperate, about to go away and then the vision that Biden talked about is going to rise up or is this the birth pains of a worse disorder? Jones asked. "That's where we are right now tonight. And I think the country has got to make a decision."
Jones, a former adviser in the Obama administration, went on to call out the election fraud claims that sparked pro-Trump rioters to occupy the Capitol building.
"I don't want to be partisan," Jones said. "I understand some of these people, their social media feed is only showing them example of example of anecdotes of vote threat, statistical, magical thinking that says that the election was impossible, so they've been bombarded with that. And because they've been bombarded with that, they're angry. Fine. You have a right to be angry. You don't have a right to insurrection. You don't have a right to sedition. You don't have a right to break into buildings and to hurt police officers. There has to be a line."
