WASHINGTON — The House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol will hold its next public hearing on Thursday, returning to prime time for the eighth in a series of hearings that began in June.
The committee has spent greater than a 12 months investigating the events surrounding the riot. The forthcoming hearing is predicted to give attention to the 187 minutes during which President Donald J. Trump stood by while a mob of his supporters overran the Capitol, resisting repeated calls from those in his inner circle to inform the rioters to face down.
The hearing is scheduled to start at 8 p.m. Eastern time. It can be the second session to be held in prime time.
How can I watch the hearing?
Live video might be available at nytimes.com, accompanied by evaluation from Recent York Times reporters. The hearing can be expected to be carried by major broadcast networks and cable news channels.
Who will testify?
The committee is predicted to listen to from two former White House officials who resigned on Jan. 6 in response to the violence that day: Matthew Pottinger, Mr. Trump’s deputy national security adviser, and Sarah Matthews, a deputy press secretary.
Each Ms. Matthews and Mr. Pottinger, who was the highest-ranking White House official to resign on Jan. 6, are expected to talk concerning the scene contained in the White House as the gang of Trump supporters marched on, and eventually overran, the Capitol.
Is that this the ultimate hearing?
The committee signaled last week that it was still pursuing latest information because it issued a subpoena to the Secret Service looking for text messages from Jan. 5 and 6 that were said to have been erased, and it has been compiling evidence from the greater than 1,000 interviews it has conducted during the last 12 months.
Because it began holding its series of hearings in June, the Jan. 6 committee has kept its schedule fluid, reflecting the evolving nature of its investigation. The panel has no other public hearings scheduled for now, though at the very least yet another is predicted around the discharge of its report, which could occur in the autumn. More hearings might be announced because the investigation continues.
