Who will the witness be today, and who will be the committee member that appears to have primary responsibility for this hearing? In addition to the chairs, of course.
It would be irresponsible not to speculate!
The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol will hold a hearing Tuesday at 1 p.m. Eastern.
The committee, in a statement, said it will “present recently obtained evidence and receive witness testimony” during this hearing. The previously unannounced meeting will be the panel’s sixth in a series.
Late last week, the panel spoke with British filmmaker Alex Holder in a closed-door meeting. Holder, who was granted exclusive access to former president Donald Trump and his family for a documentary, provided more than 10 hours of footage to the panel from interviews with Trump, his adult children, former vice president Mike Pence and footage of the Capitol attack itself. Holder, after meeting with the panel, said he was surprised he had not been called sooner but received a subpoena last week from the committee.
Previously, committee Chair Bennie G. Thompson (D-Miss.) had told reporters that he expected the next hearings to occur in July, once the panel had more time to go through new evidence.
