tuesday, next for morning hour debate and 2 p.m. for leverage business. host: we are back. a quick pro forma session. they are not in washington today. they will be back next week. we continue with our conversation about the january 6 hearing yesterday. linda, st. clair shores, michigan. democratic caller. hi linda. caller: hello. good morning. good morning. i have more of a question for people who believe the election was stolen. in 2016, donald trump said the election was rigged. he won. in 2020, donald trump said the election was rigged and he lost.
9:04 am
i would like to know what viewers feel which one was rigged. host: rick, hayward, california. did you watch? what stuck out to you? caller: i watched all nine episodes. the congressman, it is like a trial. they are trying to prove a point. the republicans would actually watch. i, republican. i voted for bushes and reagan. this man is such a liar. he does not care about the average joe person. his main objective when he got in was to make the corporations stronger. and, people that are now trying -- republicans that are trying
9:05 am
to -- you bring up a point of the january 6 trial last night when they were trying to -- the hearing. last night they were trying to make the point that trump did not do anything for three hours. he did not do anything. he sat on his butt in his lunch room watching fox news and he watched the whole thing and was smiling about a basically. i am guessing. i don't know for fact. nobody knows. the point i'm trying to make here is that every time there is irrefutable evidence that his own people, his daughter, his son-in-law are talking about, the republicans bring up nancy pelosi. it is her fault. like you pointed out all day long, she has no say in the
9:06 am
security of the capitol. my last point is, if it were true that pelosi wanted the insurrecters you the capitol, what about mitch mcconnell? he also has a sergeant at arms that came to him. well, why did he approve the 10,000 or 20,000 national guard troops to protect the capitol? they point out nancy pelosi. i am not a nancy pelosi fan. i'm sorry, i'm rambling. host: you kind of corrected it. he pointed out that there is a senate sergeant at arms that reports to the majority leader. at the time that was mitch mcconnell. there's a hell sergeant at arms that reports to the leader of the house. that was and is speaker pelosi.
9:07 am
to your point about who can authorize the national guard, it would come from the president. there would be a formal authorization of that. according to pulled effect -- politifact, there was no formal authorization of that. it was the vice president who called for the national guard. caller: let me ask you this before i get off the line. what is politifact? where did they get their information from? i have never heard of it until a couple of weeks ago. host: i don't know off the top of my head who it is funded by. go to you can go to our staff, about us, our process. the principles of the truth and
9:08 am
media methodology for independent fact checking. since our launch in 2007 we have received many questions about how we choose facts to check, how we stayed nonpartisan, how we go about fact checking and other topics. this document attempts to answer those questions. you can find it for yourself if you go to in their menu section they say who pays. it's a nonpartisan fact checking website to sort out the truth in american politics. it was treated by the tampa bay times, a floor -- florida newspaper. a nonprofit school for journalists. does that answer your question? caller: it did. thank you very much. you are doing a great service for us. thank you, greta. host: jim, springfield, virginia, independent. caller: good morning, greta.
9:09 am
doing a great job. i enjoyed all of c-span. i have seen a little bit of the hearings. did not catch a lot of last night. my major problem with the hearings is it is extremely one-sided. there is a reason jim jordan is not on the hearing panel. if he had been, you would have a lot more facts. host: what about republicans not holding news conferences after each of these hearings? they could get the gallery press office room and hold a news conference and refute everything they heard in those hearings. the media would cover it. caller: they could. they could do one hearing at a time. i believe they are keeping their powder dry. this is all before the upcoming elections.
9:10 am
i don't know if anyone disagrees with that. the wisconsin supreme court hearing which occurred i think on july 7 where a majority of the ballot boxes were not lawful. they were put in place by unlawful methods. it is often said there is no evidence there was election tampering or wrongdoing. two weeks ago that changed. wisconsin i think has 10 or 11 electoral votes. that probably would have swung towards trump. who knows? we won't know. they were unmanned, unmonitored election boxes. that has changed. i like william barr. he probably was not aware of this. those are my comments. you are doing a great job. host: bob and lorraine, ohio.
9:11 am
democratic caller. your reaction to last night hearing? caller: thank you for taking my call. last night was more powerful than i even expected. i do want to comment on some of the other callers saying we criticize and attack the january 6 commission, then they say they have not even watched the hearings. if you are going to close your mind and not taken fa -- take in facts, you have to admit you don't know what you're talking about. either learn, find out or shut up. i would like to comment about being woke. if you look up webster's dictionary, the definition, it is not a bad thing at all. i am pretty proud to be woke. host: robert from new york, independent. you are next. caller: good morning, greta.
9:12 am
thank you for having me on. host: good morning to you. go ahead. caller: as far as the hearings last night, i want to comment on something i saw on msnbc leading up to the hearings yesterday. harvard did a study of the demographics, the mindset of the rioters, protesters, whatever you want to call them. the most shocking thing in this study from harvard was only 7% had intentions of nonviolence. that is astounding to me. that blew me away. i was a journalist and d.c. for over 10 years. i covered mostly protests. that asset -- you hear some of the callers. the menacing tone of people is just amazing.
9:13 am
i am writing an article about the progression of activism and protests over the past decade. it is scary. host: i want to go to last night's hearing where the committee being led last night by elaine luria of virginia talked about senator josh hawley's actions on january 6 and the protesters. [video] >> . earlier that afternoon before the joint session started he walked across the east front of the capitol. as you can see in this photo, he raised his fist in solidarity with the protesters. already amassing at the security gate. we spoke with the capitol police officer out there at the time. she told us that senator holly's
9:14 am
gesture riled up the crowd. it bothered her greatly, because he was doing it in a safe space, protected by the officers and the barriers. later that day senator hawley fled after those protesters he helped rile up stormed the capitol. see for yourself. think about what we have seen. undeniable violence at the capitol. the vice president being evacuated to safety by the secret service. senators running for the hallways of the senate to get away from the mob. as the commander-in-chief, president trump was oath and duty-bound to protect the capitol.
9:15 am
host: if you missed the hearing, go to our website, we highlight the key moments. hit the video player and you will see a gold star at the bottom. that gives you a look to go through the more than two hours of testimony last night. happening in washington, d.c. today, our coverage on c-span. 1:00 p.m. eastern time includes dr. rochelle walensky, director of the centers for disease control. she will talk to the washington post about the latest surgeon covid-19 cases and probably being asked about the president's positive test yesterday. on saturday, 10:45 a.m. eastern time, january 6 committee member jamie and former federal judge michael luddig discussed the u.s. capitol. we will have live coverage at 10:45 a.m. eastern time on c-span, connor video app c-span
