On January 6, 2021, supporters of President Donald Trump (R, 2017–21) stormed the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., to stop the certification of votes from the 2020 presidential election that Joe Biden (D) won. Threatening to hang the vice president, rioters broke windows, stole property, and vandalized offices. Seven people ultimately died as a result of the events of January 6th, and hundreds were soon arrested. "The insurrection was an existential crisis," President Biden said in an address to Congress in April 2021, "a test of whether our democracy could survive." Was President Biden correct in his assessment of the insurrection, or was he exaggerating the danger it posed to the United States and its system of government? Was January 6th an existential threat to American democracy?
