After Thursday, Jan 6th Committee Will Push Remainder of Hearings to Review New Evidence

Tuesday’s bombshell January 6th Committee Hearing revealed the direct connection between Donald Trump and the plan to block the certification of Joe Biden’s legitimate election, including his involvement in the fake electors scheme. Aside from the often emotionally compelling testimony from the witnesses who appeared in person, the televised hearings also showed damning video testimony from RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel, who admitted that Trump had personally asked the RNC to get involved in the effort to keep him in office.

The Committee’s next hearing will be held on Thursday at noon as originally scheduled, but future hearings are now being pushed to a few weeks out so the panel can review and consider new evidence, and perhaps hear from the many potential witnesses they were forced to subpoena when their initial requests to appear voluntarily were ignored.

Initially, the Committee was expected to hold its sixth and seventh hearings by the end of June. But after Tuesday’s session, members said they need more time to incorporate new information into their public presentations. Chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) said later “at least two” more hearings are planned for next month starting the week of July 11th, after the House returns from the Independence Day recess. But the panel has not ruled out adding even more hearings down the road.

Chairman Thompson said the Committee wants enough time to parse through the hours of new footage they obtained from a documentary filmmaker who turned over hours of taped videos with Trump and his inner circle spanning “almost a year,” and additional Trump White House records from the National Archives.

Committee Vice-Chair Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) closed Tuesday’s hearing by calling out by name those who have yet to comply with the panel’s subpoenas or other requests, specifically focusing on former White House counsel Pat Cipollone.
