Capitol Riot

Ex-Election Worker Mom and Daughter Humanized the Jan. 6 Hearings

Ruby Freeman and daughter Shaye Moss opened up to Congress about the threats that supporters of then-President Donald Trump made to them and their family simply for doing her job – and it was “gripping, soul-churning, heart-wrenching testimony,” says Insider deputy editor Dave Levinthal.
