Donald Trump on Monday sued the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 Capitol  insurrection to prevent it from accessing a broad swath of records from his administration. The filing came just before the Committee convenes on Tuesday to pursue criminal contempt charges against Trump ally Steve Bannon for his refusal to cooperate with investigators. We'll talk to Los Angeles Congressman Adam Schiff, who sits on the Select Committee, about his efforts to hold January 6 rioters and their enablers to account, and about his new book "Midnight in Washington," which details the antidemocratic forces still at work in the U.S. political system.


Adam Schiff, Democratic Congressman representing California's 28th District in Los Angeles County. His new book is "Midnight in Washington: How We Almost Lost Our Democracy and Still Could."
