It is two years later.
I was there that day and addressing what happened has been a major part of my life ever since. On the ground at the Capitol, it was instantly apparent how deadly it could have been and how dangerous it was for the country. It was also unmistakably organized.
In the weeks and months after the attack, I focused on doing all I could to expose the highest levels of that coordination. Even as I busied myself, I could feel how much the experience of being there had shaken me. In recent years, I have covered a lot of political violence. That comes with a gnawing worry about the state and stability of our country, but January 6 added something else.
