His eyes burning with emotion, he slammed the table with his hand: "It's disgraceful!"It was a powerful indictment of those Republican leaders who now deny the truth of what happened, and in doing so help keep alive a threat against American democracy.The hearing presented the country with a clear demarcation. On one side of it, we saw new videos of horrifying, unrestrained violence, and heard officers' harrowing descriptions of what was done to them. On the other, we heard their courageous response: these men -- and many more like them, men and women hugely outmatched by a predatory mob -- put their lives on the line, and nearly lost them, to defend members of Congress and American democracy.
