Lawyers: Jan. 6 Detainees Subject to ‘Blatantly Unconstitutional’ Jail Conditions

It’s been nearly six months since the unfortunate events of January 6, when post-election frustrations—felt by large swaths of the country—culminated in the breach of the Capitol building. The violence that ensued has been condemned by all sides. So far, nearly 500 people have been arrested and as FBI investigations continue, more arrests are likely to come.

We’re joined today by two lawyers representing January 6 detainees, John Pierce and Steven Metcalf II.
