The House select committee investigating the January 6 attack on the Capitol held its second public hearing and focused on former President Trump’s false 2020 election fraud claims. The committee played portions of video deposition from former Attorney General William Barr where he described the former President’s claims as “bogus” and said “he’s become detached from reality.” Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff is a member of the committee and tells Anderson Cooper it’s important for the American people to hear testimony like Barr’s so they know Trump wasn’t “mistaken” or “merely just misled.”

Plus, a bipartisan group of senators announced they’ve reached an agreement on gun safety that they say includes “needed mental health resources, improves school safety and support for students and helps ensure dangerous criminals and those who are adjudicated as mentally ill can’t purchase weapons.” Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy has been leading the negotiations for the Democrats. He joins AC360 to discuss when he thinks the Senate will vote on the bill.
