8:32 pm
their blogs and all of cheddar was about violence and it was a terrible thing. as i said, well, i'm going to be there because i believe in the peaceful transfer of power. and i'm going to be right there watching this because it's a historic day and lo and behold, i said but i'm aware my shoes. anyway. and so i did. and that's what happened. and i'm telling you, those perpetrated this. let's be held accountable. the peaceful transfer of power was almost awarded that day. and so, yes, we have got to that only secure and protect the capital and those workers staff members. but we also have to protect our democracy because it's very fragile. and these people are regrouping and you see where what's taking place now. throughout the country. and so have to talk about this on january 6 as we commemorate that horrible day and we're going to talk about remembering the reclaiming our

8:34 pm
that is going to be safe. but i have to just mention one thing about the cap the police because last year this was so traumatic for the capitol police i mean, they were doing a yeoman's job. and in the blackout, the police officers that i know many of them because as you know, i've had all kinds of security issues and they called me afterwards and told me not only were they fighting to protect us and the citadel of democracy, the capital, but they were also fighting for our democracy and fighting to save their lives because they were being called the n word they would be in harassed. they would be in that pushed on. they were being fought. they were being in the middle of fights. one police officer told me i was like a civil war. they have to fight for their lives themselves. so the capitol police officers, especially the black police officers did that. unbelievable job with minimal resources we found out and learn later that that did not that they only had and they needed a heck of a lot
8:35 pm

8:36 pm
sure that those who are perpetrators of this coup are held accountable and that we have to move forward to solidify protect our democracy. again, this last question as so do you feel like you're fighting an uphill battle and. >> la and in light of what's happening at the state level with voter suppression measures passing with local election officials with one loyal loyal list to the trump administration being put in certain positions of power. do you feel you're fighting an uphill battle at this point. well, i feel like we have to the voting rights act of freedom to vote act right away because week because of gerrymandering and because of how they're trying >> through electoral process, trying to make sure that they have mechanisms in place that would not elect out for a full democratic participation for people to exercise their right to vote. yeah, we've got to do something. we have to do something quickly because this is the manifestation of
8:37 pm
january 6. this is the next step not to say that they're not going to do you know, around the country one day. this is as horrible as january 6 were trying to make sure that that never happens again. but there they be merged political ways to try to make sure that they control. the government and in engage in willie, what is beginning to look like. real form of a dictatorship and we know that donald trump came to office with sebastian gorka and steve bannon and steve miller, all these neo-nazis who are white supremacist, who really want to see the our democracy and and so we've got to fight hard and we've got to make sure we engage in political action. we've got to make sure that as a democrat we keep the house in the senate and the white house and do the right thing by the american people. >> congresswoman barbara lee, thank you for joining us tonight. we appreciated good luck on thursday and obviously very important day and one that's going to live a long
