Where is the Jan 6th insurrection cast now? What are they doing? Catch up with this network map.
It’s easy to forget people’s contributions over time. Especially when there is a big cast. Who did what? When? Where? What are they up to now? Fortunately software makes it a little easier to see where the people involved in the deadly attempt to overthrow American democracy are now.

Jan 6th insurrection. Deja Vu all over again.
2 Years After Jan. 6 Insurrection, New GOP Chaos Roils The U.S. Capitol. On the second anniversary of the Capitol riot, another round of Republican turmoil has gripped the House and blocked the election of a House speaker.
As the chaos unfolded on the floor of the House of Representatives this week and Republicans struggled to elect a speaker, some lawmakers couldn’t help but see links to the violent Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection that took place here two years prior. Many of the same far-right Republicans who supported or played key roles in the effort to overturn the 2020 presidential election based on false claims of fraud are now engaged in a historic speaker blockade that has delayed the formation of the House and ground all legislative business to a halt.
On Friday, the second anniversary of the attack on the U.S. Capitol, the House will try for the 11th time to elect a speaker. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), who also voted to overturn the 2020 presidential election, has failed to win a majority 10 times ― more than any speaker elections since the Civil War. – HuffPo
How to design a network map
This network map was designed in a few hours by a DemLabs volunteer with the free Kumu app. It includes 63 people organized in ten categories. The map can be searched in different ways -visually, by name or by category. This helps makes a lot of information easier to navigate. You can also zoom in/out or focus on just one individual. Details and links to more information appear in the side panel.

TakeAway: Remember who the Jan 6th cast was and what they did. History has a tendency to repeat itself.
