A six-month New York Times investigation has synchronized and mapped out thousands of videos and police radio communications from the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, providing the most complete picture to date of what happened — and why.

For some, Jan. 6 was just a rally for their president. For others, it was more.

The New York Times spent months collecting and analyzing footage from the Capitol riot to provide the most complete picture to date of what happened.

In a new Visual Investigation, the Times shows how instigators exploited weaknesses in the Capitol’s defenses to set off a wave of violence that engulfed the building, ending in hundreds of injuries and several deaths. We show the delay to secure Congress that likely cost a rioter her life, the failures by police leaders that allowed the frenzy to take hold and how officers finally secured the building.

Watch the full documentary here.

Here are some of the key findings.
