Wednesday’s storming of the Capitol should not have come as a surprise to anyone who has paid attention to Donald Trump’s election-related conspiracy-mongering in the weeks since November 3. Politico’s chief political correspondent Tim Alberta has been interacting with Trump supporters for months now and joins today’s show to explain why Wednesday’s Capitol siege was almost inevitable: “What we saw at every step of the way was a coordinated and deliberate campaign” by the president, high ranking Republicans, and far-right media personalities “to deceive the American public,” Alberta tells Sarah and Steve.

Show Notes:

-“Jan. 6 Was 9 Weeks — And 4 Years — in the Making” by Tim Alberta in Politico.

-American Carnage: On the Front Lines of the Republican Civil War and the Rise of President Trump by Tim Alberta.
