All new connecting Africa Saturday on CNN in association with a fraction bank. A world sport, I'm Alex Thomas. This is CNN. Good evening again from Washington, we begin this hour with breaking news on what the president and vice president will say tomorrow at ceremonies marking the anniversary of the worst attack ever by Americans on American democracy since the Civil War. As we've been learning all year, this was not spontaneous. It was not an isolated event. It was part of a larger campaign to pressure everyone from county election officials to state lawmakers and secretaries of state, the vice president of the United States to overturn the election. Now in our last hour, we had the co authors apparel, the bestselling account of the former administration's final days, Bob Woodward, Robert Costa, but Woodward called what happened a year ago a crime against the constitution. Robert Costa said the more you pull up the rug, the more you see that everyone's fingerprints were on this. And compounding that, a Republican Party would start at the year notably clear eyed about the insurrection, at least for a couple of days, is now gaslighting the public instead of searching for answers. So there's all of that and the breaking news, and that's katelyn Collins. Joins us now from The White House with that. So we know President Biden and vice president Harris is going to speak at the capitol to mark tomorrow's anniversary. Do we know much about what they're going to say? I think for President Biden, when he starts to speak after the vice president, has given her remarks Anderson, it's going to be pretty blunt. This is a speech that he's been working on for several days. He had nothing on his public schedule today because this was something he was focused on, given just how big the moment is, talking about the implications, not only of what happened that day, but also, as you were saying, just there, how far reaching they have been. And what we've learned in the days and the months since that attack happened. And so when it comes to the role that his former predecessor played in invoking and starting that riot, that is something going the President Biden is expected to take on head on according to a Jen Psaki told us in the briefing earlier today. I would expect the President Biden will lay out the significance of what happened at the capitol and the singular responsibility. President Trump has for the chaos and carnage that we saw. And he will forcibly push back on the lie spread by the former president in an attempt to mislead the American people and his own supporters, as well as distract from his role and what happened. I think that was a key line there talking about how Jen Psaki says that they believe that former president Trump has tried to distract from the role he played in what happened that day. Of course, his rally beforehand. What happened before and the days leading up to that, how he denied what it actually happened in the election. And so that should be a big focus of what President Biden says on Capitol Hill tomorrow morning. It's going to be a really significant speech. And I think also looking back to what President Biden was doing on that day, a year ago, he was preparing to give a speech Anderson on the economy to talk about that. And of course, that was a speech that was then delayed by two hours as people watched and basic disbelief of what was going on on Capitol Hill that day. And now, of course, a year later, President Biden himself will be up there talking about the day marking it. One other thing voting rights, I think, has been a big discussion that has come out of what happened on January 6th. And you will hear President Biden mention it tomorrow, but not in any significant way, not in any big way. The White House says that's because he is going to Atlanta next Tuesday to give a speech on voting rights there. That has become something that has been a big push at the forefront for Democrats now, as you've seen, the legislative part of the agenda has been stalled lately. It wasn't something that was at the forefront for President Biden in his first year in office, but they say it is certainly something that's at the forefront now Anderson. And Collins appreciate it, tonight, the House select committee on January 6th, heard from Stephanie Grisham, the former White House press secretary, joining us now with the latest in congressional correspondent Ryan nobles. So what do we know about Grisham's meeting with the community tonight? Well, Anderson, probably the most remarkable about a Grisham's appearance in front of the select committee is that she wasn't subpoenaed. The committee did even ask her to appear, but this was born out of a phone conversation that she had with Jamie Raskin, a member of the committee, where she was very candid about her experience around the Trump family and the days leading up to and on January 6th. And through that conversation with Raskin, it was clear that she had a lot of information to share that led to this meeting that took place tonight with the select committee after Grisham left. She didn't shed much light on what she told the committee, but she said that she is fully cooperating with them and is willing to answer whatever question that they have that they have about her connection to what happened on January 6th. I appreciate it. Joining us now, senior and chief political correspondent and State of the Union co anchor Dan abash. CN senior law enforcement analyst and former FBI deputy director Andrew mccabe and CN legal analyst Carrie Cordero, all by the way, testing negative today for COVID. Yay. Including myself. I assume, right? I didn't actually see your results, but I trust you all. Dan, so you heard the reporting from Ryan nobles and wondering what most surprised you about how much has changed in this past year? You know, how much has changed and yet how much has it? Hasn't changed, right? In the immediate aftermath, as we were watching and then that night, a year ago tomorrow, we thought things were finally going to change. After the Republicans, you played last hour, so many Republicans, Republican leaders from Kevin McCarthy to Mitch McConnell to others who are now Lindsey Graham suddenly seem to have a spine. Yes. Are now in total, not even just denial. They're just completely ignoring it. We're very out front and saying this is the worst day of that I have spent here in Congress and now they are not. And the reason is because of the immense intense pressure that is still to this day coming from the Trump base on these people who they feel that they elected to do their bidding, but they're bidding is the bidding of the former president and that is because the lies continue and the echo chamber continues to really reverberate and it's because not just of the former president, but of the conservative media who amplify

Nancy pelosi said according to cnn she had received top level assurances. Our nuclear arsenal was safe and nothing bad would happen etc etc etc will now we know that martin elite the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff called. Nancy pelosi said he was afraid for donald trump's mental stability and had taken steps to make sure that he could not launch any attacks. And also we now know from bob woodward robert costa book. That's coming out that mark molly on his own called his counterpart in china and said. Don't worry if the president orders an attack. I will call you ahead of time until you. It's coming so it's not a surprise. The chairman of the joint chiefs of staff did that. If what woodward in customer true that's treasonous behaviour. He serves at the pleasure of the president of the united states. He went around the sitting president of the united states. And if he did that to trump he can do that for another leader. He disagrees with this is putting him in charge in a way he is not meant to be. And just so. We're clear here if you think what miley did was good and i understand i. I totally understand miley thought. He was serving american interests. I get that. But that's not his role that's not his role in if he thought that about trump would about a president who possibly has mild were series dementia. This is the problem he can't do this. This is the problem. And if you're not upset about it because of trump don't be upset about it when it happens to democratic president. It's the precedent that matters. It's the precedent that matters. No donald trump should not have started. A war with china should not have done that. And it's good that our military possibly put in place ways to defuse the situation if they really thought he was completely unstable based on their up close observations that you and i don't have but it's not their place but on top of that. It's really not their place even if they did something like that and miley also tried to order or did successfully order some Wargames operations in the south china sea to be postponed but it is absolutely fundamentally not his place to reach out to his chinese counterpart and say hey Don't worry if if the president were attack. I'll make sure you know in advance. That's that's not his place that is not his place and he should be fired for it now. I wanna move on from there. I will take your phone calls. Eight seven.
