The Justice Department released horrifying new police body camera video from the Capitol hill insurrection on January 6. The video shows a man, who is being charged with seven federal crimes, screaming profanities at officers, threateningly wielding a flagpole and rushing at officers. Sandra Garza’s life partner, Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, was injured while physically engaging with the rioters and later died after he collapsed. Garza tells Anderson Cooper “this is not loving America.” Plus, Sen. Joe Manchin, a key Democratic vote in a 50-50 Senate, has said he’s opposed to the For the People Act in its current form but released a proposal of his own. His compromises include making Election Day a holiday, banning gerrymandering, mandating at least 15 consecutive days of early voting and instituting a voter ID requirement that includes a utility bill as an alternative. Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar is a co-sponsor of the For the People Act. She joins AC360 to discuss Manchin’s proposed changes.
