Former U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade digs into the week's explosive testimony at the January 6th committee hearing -- and whether it pushes the Department of Justice closer to an indictment of Donald Trump.
Following the mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas, President Trump placed blame on mental illness. It’s a connection gun violence expert Jonathan Metzl calls the “the height of irresponsibility.”
Metzl says there are concrete steps we can take to prevent gun violence. But to do so effectively, he says, we must acknowledge the connection between white privilege and gun rights.
This an argument Metzl lays out in his new book “Dying of Whiteness: How the Politics of Racial Resentment is Killing America’s Heartland.”
