A year ago, an angry mob supporting former Pres. Donald Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol in an attempt to prevent Congress from allowing current President Joe Biden from taking office. In some ways, it’s hard to imagine a whole year has gone by since that fatal riot. Yet, so much has happened.  On this week's episode of Connect the Dots Weekly – hosted by WCBS 880's Lynda Lopez – we take a look at the events of Jan. 6 and explore our growing understanding of how that event has impacted the nation, featuring guests first year Congressman Ritchie Torres from New York, Princeton University Professor of History and Public Affairs Julian Zelizer, Huffington Post Justice Reporter Ryan Reilly and CBS News political analyst John Dickerson.
