Witness to the Siege - A PBS NewsHour Special

Witness to the Siege - A PBS NewsHour Special

On Jan. 6, for the first time in more than two centuries, Congress was attacked and overrun, this time by its own citizens. The PBS NewsHour’s anchor and managing editor Judy Woodruff talks to correspondents Lisa Desjardins, Amna Nawaz and Yamiche Alcindor about what they saw at the Capitol, at the White House and what they'll always remember from that day.
