Guest: Ed Keenan, Star’s Washington bureau chief

A year has passed since the insurrection of the US Capitol building by rioters who believe the 2020 election was stolen from former President Donald Trump. Despite the failed attack, the event has cast a shadow over the American political system as many Republicans continue to push what some call “The Big Lie”. As US President Joe Biden prepares to address his suffrage agenda, many experts believe the spirit of US democracy could be at stake.
