As we approach the one year anniversary of the Jan. 6 insurrection in our nation's capital, we check in with Massachusetts Congressman Jim McGovern, who was there that day and was forced to evacuate his post to escape the violent mob.

McGovern talks with us about why it's important to acknowledge what actually happened that day, who still needs to be held accountable and how Congress can possibly move forward and work together after such a significant, divisive event.

This segment aired on January 5, 2022.
