Last-minute hearing for Jan.6 panel happening Tuesday afternoon
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) – The Jan. 6 committee will present new evidence and hear witness testimony in a last-minute public hearing Tuesday. Originally, they were scheduled to take a break until July.
The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday at 1 p.m. ET. In an unusual move, the committee has not identified the witness, as it has for previous hearings.
The upcoming hearings will cover the events leading up to Jan. 6, the marshaling of the mob, the attack on the Capitol, and what the president was, and was not doing, as the Capitol was attacked.
The nine-member House select committee has already held hearings on then-President Donald Trump’s pressure campaign on his vice president, Mike Pence, Justice Department officials, and state and local officials.
Past hearings, had testimony from top Trump White House officials, administration, and campaign officials, who described how Trump and his allies aggressively pushed a plot to block certification of Joe Biden’s victory in key swing states in order to overturn the 2020 election.
