Thursday marked a critical step in the investigation into the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, as the U.S. House voted to hold former Trump aide Steve Bannon in criminal contempt for defying a congressional subpoena. Democrats' rebuke was joined by nine Republicans, with a final vote of 229-202. Judy Woodruff discusses the vote's implications with Josh Gerstein, senior legal affairs reporter for Politico.

Editor's note: Judy Woodruff's interview with Josh Gerstein was conducted in two parts after the live interview was interrupted due to technical difficulties and then resumed later in the show. This segment has been edited to merge both parts for our online audience.
