On Wednesday, January 6, the world was watching as thousands of pro-Trump protesters convened outside the U.S. Capitol. They disrupted a joint session of Congress to count the electoral votes and formalize Joe Biden’s election victory. After breaching the perimeter, the rioters occupied and vandalized parts of the building.
As the first event of 2021, the ACG and Freunde des American Council on Germany hosted a discussion with Juliane Schäuble, the U.S. Correspondent for the Berlin daily Der Tagesspiegel and NPR’s Rob Schmitz.
