The January 6 committee’s primetime hearings begin on Thursday, June 9 at 8pm ET.
The committee plans to publicly present their findings about the January 6 Capitol attack.
Here’s an overview of who’s been interviewed, subpoenaed, and invited to testify so far.
After interviewing hundreds of people, sifting through thousands of documents and issuing dozens of subpoenas, the House select committee investigating the January 6 attack on the US Capitol will make their findings public during six hearings in June.
The committee hopes to present the most comprehensive account yet of the deadly assault on Congress, and lay out the forces, decisions, and people who fueled the riot in early 2021. They seek to prove the unprecedented threat that the mob, which was trying stop the official certification of the 2020 election results, posed for American democracy.
The first hearing is scheduled for this Thursday, June 9th at 8 p.m. ET. The second one is expected to be held on June 13, at 10 a.m. ET. Here’s how to watch the January 6 committee hearings via TV and streaming.
Insider has reported that the committee is expected to air previously unseen footage from the day of the insurrection and pre-taped interviews the committee conducted during its exhaustive 10-month-investigation that aims to deepen Americans’ understanding of the events that day and the risks it posed to the peaceful transfer of power. Axios also reported that they will showcase official White House photographs from the insurrection that has not been disclosed publicly.
In May, the Department of Justice began requesting documents from the January 6 committee as part of their investigation into the insurrection, and those who instigated it.
The panel is composed of seven Democrats, and two Republicans — Vice Chair Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois. Chairman Bennie Thompson, a Democrat from Mississippi, told Insider in a recent interview that “our democracy…stands to lose if we don’t get it right.”
