Today's hearing featured testimony from the police officers attacked by insurrectionists on January 6th.

Testimony from Officers Harry Dunn, Aquilino Gonell, Michael Fanone, and Daniel Hodges, who recounted their personal experiences defending the Capitol was at times furious and at other times emotional. There is no way to watch this hearing and believe Republicans when they say they were as peaceful as "tourists." At the very beginning there is a video showing just how violent it was.

If you missed it and want to watch the entire hearing, you can watch the video at the very end of this post.

Here is the video compilation played at the beginning of the hearing. Everyone should watch this:

Here is Aquilino Gonell, lamenting the fact that his fellow citizens attacked him with American flags.

Here is Officer Hodges, explaining why he calls the insurrectionists terrorists.

Officer Fanone's fury:

The Republicans on the committee, Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, stayed true to the mission. Here's part of Rep. Liz Cheney's opening statement:

Rep. Adam Kinzinger was visibly moved by the officers' testimony.
