Jan. 6 hearing to focus on how domestic violent extremist groups helped fuel attack on Capitol
WASHINGTON (WHEC) – The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot is set Tuesday to show how domestic violent extremist groups helped fuel the attack on the U.S. Capitol as part of former President Donald Trump’s campaign to try to overturn his election loss.
The latest hearing, slated to begin at 1 p.m, comes four days after the committee received what it called “critical testimony” from former White House counsel Pat Cipollone.
Cipollone "corroborated key elements” from the bombshell testimony of ex-White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson, the committee said.
The committee will look at the far-right groups, the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers. As well as Qanon, the internet-born conspiracy theories.
