The hearings were led by Committee Chair Rep. Bennie Thompson and Vice Chair Rep. Lynn Cheney. U.S. Rep. Jamie Raskin sits on that committee.
Dunn was one of the officers who struggled to hold back an angry and violent mob rushing in and through the Capitol.
“They were attacking us from all sides of the building,” he told MyMCM two-and-a-half months ago. “They were extremely angry. That level of anger, I’ve never seen before.”
Listen to his own words about that day when he sat down with MyMCM on March 25.
We are watching Donald Trump’s narrative of lies unravel before our eyes. He knew he lost, but he still called on his supporters to carry on their violent campaign to overthrow the 2020 election. #January6thCommitteeHearings https://t.co/DQZbygIQ95
