Mother Jones’ Ari Berman and the Struggle To Protect Voting Rights

This week on "The Tent," Daniella and Jesse discuss the ongoing violence in Israel and Palestine and Republican opposition to a commission on the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol. They also speak with Ari Berman, senior reporter at Mother Jones, about ongoing voter suppression efforts in the states.

Part of a Series

Four and half months after the January 6 insurrection, Republicans in Congress find themselves unwilling to commit to a bipartisan commission looking into the tragic and deadly events. Daniella and Jesse discuss the deadlocked negotiations this week on “The Tent” as well as the efforts to de-escalate violence in Israel and Gaza. Plus, they connect with Mother Jones senior reporter Ari Berman to discuss his reporting on voter suppression efforts being pursued in the states.
