Televising the Watergate hearings exposed Nixon - the same can happen with Trump

From NBC News | Opinion by Michael Conway, former counsel, U.S. House Judiciary Committee

The Jan. 6 Capitol riot investigation needs to be televised for all America to see

The looming anniversary of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot underscores the grave danger our nation faced that tragic day. Since July, a House committee has been hard at work investigating what caused the attack on the Capitol in order to take corrective steps to prevent a recurrence.

However, little of the committee’s work has been made public. The one-year anniversary is the perfect time for the House to start conducting televised hearings in which witnesses are questioned and the evidence gathered behind closed doors is revealed. It’s essential that all Americans are exposed to how close we came to losing our democracy a year ago.
