But what if one of the scariest aspects of this insurrection wasn’t only the violence that took place that day?

VICE News’ Seb Walker sits down with top Trump administration officials including former Acting Secretary of Defense Chris Miller in his first TV interview since leaving office, to try and better understand what was really going on in those chaotic days as the nation held its breath.
