    US president urges bipartisan unity to 'allow no one to place a dagger at the throat of our democracy'

    WASHINGTONUS President Joe Biden issued an stalwart warning to the American people on Friday, saying those responsible for the mayhem that enveloped the US Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021 remain at work.

    Speaking at the Port of Los Angeles, Biden said "the same forces that led January 6 remain at work today."

    "It's about our democracy itself. We have to protect our democracy," the president said. "We're seeing how the battle for the soul of America has been far from won, but I know together, and I mean this, we can unite and defend this nation, Democrat and Republican; allow no one to place a dagger at the throat of our democracy."

    The comments come one day after a special panel investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection held its first public hearing.

    Laying out its evidence in the nationally-televised session, the House of Representatives special committee placed blame for the insurrection squarely on the shoulders of former President Donald Trump.

    "The violence was no accident,” said Rep. Bennie Thompson, the chairman of the panel. “Jan. 6 was the culmination of an attempted coup, a brazen attempt, as one rioter put it shortly after Jan. 6, to overthrow the government.”

    The panel played a previously unseen video clip of Trump’s attorney general, William Barr, testifying that he told Trump his claims of a rigged election were “bull - - - -,” and that he “didn’t want to be a part of it.”

    "You can't live in a world where the incumbent administration stays in power based on its view, unsupported by specific evidence…that there was fraud in the election,” said Barr in the taped interview.

    The video clip offered a preview of the committee’s months-long investigation, which contains an abundance of evidence collected by congressional investigators who interviewed more than 1,000 witnesses, including key figures in Trump’s attempt to retain the presidency.

    4 takeaways from the third Jan. 6 hearing : NPR

    The committee laid out how Trump and a lawyer advising him pressured Pence even after Trump was aware there was a riot. The question now is whether Trump could face criminal consequences.

    Pence prevented a fall into chaos, and 3 other takeaways from Jan. 6 hearing

    June 16, 20226:03 PM ET

    The moment was dramatic.

    Rioters had overrun law enforcement in the U.S. Capitol. Just 40 feet from the vice president of the United States and his team – and hearing the din of the rioters – the Secret Service was hurrying to evacuate the group, into a car and out of there.

    But Vice President Mike Pence refused.

    He was determined to finish the business of the government, to count the votes that would affirm the results of the presidential victory of Joe Biden as president and Kamala Harris as vice president, the very people Pence ran against.

    And he did so as he was facing unprecedented pressure from President Trump. Even as the insurrectionists had breached the Capitol, Trump sent a tweet tightening the squeeze on Pence.

    "Pence didn't have the courage to do what should have been done," Trump tweeted, aware the rioters had breached the Capitol.

    HOUSE JAN. 6 COMMITTEE HEARINGS

    Jan. 6 committee leaders say Trump broke the law by trying to pressure Pence

    It was a tweet a White House aide described, in taped testimony, as "pouring gasoline on the fire." Aides were advising him to do the opposite, to send something to tamp down the violence. Instead, Trump escalated.

    That wasn't a scene out of a Hollywood movie, it's what the Jan. 6 committee revealed in vivid detail in its third hearing Thursday.

    Here are four takeaways of what we learned during the hearing:

    1. Had Pence not rebuffed the pressure, the country would have been thrown into chaos.

    Pence faced an enormous amount of pressure to do something he had no constitutional authority to do – reject the electors' votes for president or throw it back to the states.

    The 12th Amendment and the Electoral Count Act lay out a ceremonial role for the vice president to preside in this process, not one that gives him power to essentially overturn the results of an election.

    Had Pence ceded to the pressure, witnesses said Thursday, American democracy would have been significantly weakened.

    Greg Jacob, a lawyer for Pence, said there would have been short-term and long-term consequences – political chaos with lawsuits and unrest in the streets and would have set a precedent establishing a situation where one person had authority to determine the outcome of an election.

    Pence was determined to avoid that – despite the very real threats he faced.

    HOUSE JAN. 6 COMMITTEE HEARINGS

    A respected conservative judge is now a critic of his party — and former clerks

    Retired Judge J. Michael Luttig, who advised Pence on the vice-presidential role on Jan. 6, told the panel that because of Trump, his allies' and his supporters' continued rhetoric, they continue to represent "a clear and present danger to democracy."

    Still, it was a little odd to have the story told without two of the principal characters – Trump and Pence.

    "He obviously did the right thing on Jan. 6," Neal Katyal, former acting solicitor general in the Obama administration, said on MSNBC after the hearing. "Great. But the idea that he can sit on the sidelines during this hearing and not tell the American people ... not tell the Justice Department what actually happened in his words, to me, I find unforgivable. So, it's great to lionize him for what he did last year, but I want to know, and I want to hear from him what actually happened in his own words."

    2. The pressure came from the top.

    Trump pressured Pence publicly and privately. In addition to that 2:24 p.m. tweet on Jan. 6, Trump referred to Pence 11 times during his speech on Jan. 6 before the insurrection.

    Trump tweeted multiple times in the days leading up to Jan. 6 targeting Pence, lied in a statement about Pence agreeing with him about the power the vice president had and multiple witnesses, including Trump's daughter Ivanka, testified to a "heated" phone call on Jan. 6 between Trump and Pence.

    Trump was trying to browbeat Pence into going along with what he wanted. Witnesses described Trump as using the word "wimp," saying that Pence didn't have the "courage" to overturn the election and that Trump used the "p-word."

    The committee did a strong job relaying just how much Trump's words resonated with his mob of supporters who stormed the Capitol.

    "If Pence caved, we're going to drag m************ through the streets," one rioter is heard saying on video. "You politicians are going to be dragged through the streets."

    The committee also revealed a chilling quote, noting that a Proud Boys informant told the FBI that the Proud Boys "would have killed Mike Pence if given the chance."

    3. The pressure on Pence continued even after the riot.

    Not only did Trump send that tweet, but Pence lawyer Jacob testified that lawyer John Eastman, who had concocted this plan and convinced Trump of it, urged Jacob to get Pence to delay certification and send it back to the states.
