Jill and Victor are joined by impeachment manager Rep. Madeleine Dean to share what it was like inside the Capitol during the 1/6 insurrection. They break down Donald’s pivotal role in it based on his words and attempts to foment disinformation, then highlight the importance of holding him accountable while supporting efforts to protect our voting rights.
Most notably, Rep. Dean served as an impeachment manager during Donald Trump’s second impeachment, giving her great insights for our conversation today. Before that, Rep. Dean has done everything from being an English professor to a state representative in Pennsylvania. In 2018, after noticing that there were no women serving in Congress from Pennsylvania, she ran for Congress and won. In Congress, Rep. Dean sits on the Judiciary and Financial Services committees. She is also a member of numerous caucuses including the Bipartisan Addiction and Mental Health Task Force, the New Democrat Coalition, Congressional Progressive Caucus, and more.
