A federal jury reached a unanimous guilty verdict on the two contempt of Congress charges in the case against Steve Bannon, a former aide to President Trump. CNN Chief Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin and CNN Senior Investigative Correspondent Drew Griffin discuss the verdict and what it could mean for getting cooperation from future January 6 committee hearing witnesses. Plus, the committee held their eighth hearing which revealed audio exchanges between former Vice President Pence’s secret service detail during the assault on the Capitol, and testimony from advisors to the President about what he was and was not doing while the violence was unfolding. CNN Senior Law Enforcement Analyst and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, CNN Contributor and former Nixon White House Counsel John Dean and CNN's Abby Phillip discuss whether or not the hearing strengthened a potential criminal case against the former president.
