Watch this Morning Joe segment with Willie Geist, Jonathan Lemire and Mike Barnicle as they recap and assess the first prime-time hearing from the House Select Committee investigating the January 6, 2021 US Capitol attack, which detailed the findings of the panel's investigation and unveiled new video from closed-door depositions of members of former President Donald Trump's team and the violence at the Capitol. Republican Rep. Liz Cheney, who is serving as the panel’s vice chair, stated that former President Trump had a “sophisticated, seven-point plan" to overturn the 2020 presidential election over the course of several months while she explained how the panel plans to use its future hearings to tackle each part of the scheme. “For anyone to view what we saw last night – and, you're right, it was hard to view—and then to have these same, specific members of Congress who get up and talk publicly, as you just referenced, ‘we have to support the police’ in the midst of that chaos. I mean, this was a planned attack on the foundations of our democracy,” says Barnicle about the January 6 attack on the Capitol.

Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski, Willie Geist and Mike Barnicle continue the Morning Joe conversation about the details leading up to this week's mass elementary school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, that left 21 people dead, including 19 children and two teachers. “There’s only two things that are vividly clear at this point: One is that the autopsy, the report of what happened that day, minute-by-minute, in terms of law enforcement people and the shooter himself, is going to be brutal. It’s going to be brutal. Just given the fact that there was…either half an hour or a 40-minute lapse between the time that he entered the classroom and the time that he was shot dead. The other aspect of this that’s going to come to fore is the idea that several people have mentioned, I think preposterously, since the shooting occurred: Is that things would have been different if teachers were armed, including from Governor Abbott’s press conference…one of the people on the stage, ‘it would have been different if teachers had been armed.’ So, we see what happens in terms of just a school police officer being confronted by someone with an assault weapon, with an AR-15, you know you’re out gunned. We don’t want to attribute motives until we find out all the facts; but a schoolteacher armed in a classroom certainly would have been more than outmatched,” says Barnicle following Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s press conference about the massacre.

ICYMI: Watch this Morning Joe conversation with Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski and Mike Barnicle about why lawmakers will not take action on gun reform legislation even after the latest U.S. school mass shooting during which an 18-year-old gunman wielding an AR-15 fatally shot 19 children and two teachers at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. “We have an issue involving a specific weapon, an assault rifle. It's killing children. It's killing grandmothers. It’s extraordinarily easy to use. It's even easier to purchase. It’s a danger to democracy. It’s a danger to your family, to your children, and your grandchildren. But, we have a way to stop it. We have a way to slow down the murders of children, and here's how we do it: We establish, again, a ban on the sale of assault weapons. We establish, again, universal pre-checks, so they can't purchase weapons, and your elected officials, knowing this, seeing the evidence, seeing their own futures politically perhaps at stake, they rise up in a majority and they say, ‘no, no, we won't do it.’ That's where we are. You can feel the nuts and bolts of our democracy popping loose when they vote to continue insanity,” says Barnicle about the inaction from lawmakers on gun control. Join the conversation here.

You pass it on to your sons, your daughters, and they carry it through. That was just a wonderful moment, wonderful moment,” says Barnicle about Judge’s meeting with the young fan.

People like the governor of Florida think that part of Donald Trump's calling card…was that too many Americans thought, ‘oh, he's a tough guy, look at the way he talks.’ So, they’re trying to mimic him now, and it’ll get worse.

They crush their opponents, and they brag about their accomplishments. The Democrats are unable to do that….They sit there paralyzed by the differences between the progressives and the moderates in both the House and the Senate. But there are deliverables that the President ought to be talking about…things that have helped people, helped families survive through the virus, and it's still there: The promise is still there, but they seem unable to articulate it, and worse—unable to act on it,” says Barnicle about Democrats touting the achievements of Biden’s first year in office. Watch the conversation here.

Tune in for this Morning Joe conversation with Joe Scarborough, Willie Geist and Mike Barnicle as they discuss the “grifters” within the Republican Party spreading lies for financial gain after Dr. Anthony Fauci and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) sparred during a Senate health hearing where Dr. Fauci said he has received death threats while working to end the pandemic because of Paul's false claims. Says Barnicle: "They have perfected the easy art of the steal. Push this button on your phone from Rand Paul's email and you can contribute $5, $10, $15, whatever. Low amounts of money—except they really add up, and they go right into the pockets of these people.”

How do you do it? How do you engage with them?” Hear Murphy’s response about what a “different place” the U.S. Senate is today than when he joined in 2007 and how he tries to convince Republicans “to get back on board with the rule of law."

ICYMI: Morning Joe’s Joe Scarborough, Willie Geist and Mike Barnicle talk with David Ignatius about former President Donald Trump slamming South Dakota Republican Sen. Mike Rounds, calling him a “jerk” and a “RINO,” one day after Rounds pushed back against the lie that the 2020 presidential election was stolen. “Donald Trump with almost each political statement that he makes further entrenches himself on this island of egomania that he presides over. The land of common sense is a little offshore and increasingly the population on that area is going to grow,” Barnicle says of the Republican Party.
