Live updates on Biden speech, January 6 events

President Joe Biden starkly criticized former President Donald Trump and the lies woven around the 2020 election results in a forceful speech marking a year since the brazen attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Against the background of Statuary Hall in the Capitol, Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris addressed the nation on Thursday morning, the start of a day of memorials.

The president said he would not shrink from a fight for the country.

“I will defend this nation and allow no one to place a dagger at the throat of democracy,” Biden said.

The Jan. 6 insurrection, predicated on overturning the results of the 2020 presidential election, led to five deaths, hundreds of arrests and the creation of the bipartisan House select committee dedicated to investigating the causes behind it.
