The Chairman of the January 6th House Select Committee promised the panel will tell the “story about what happened” when its public hearings start on June 9th.
“We’ll tell the story about what happened. We will use a combination of witnesses, exhibits, things that we have — to the tens of thousands of exhibits we’ve interviewed and looked at as well as the hundreds of witnesses we deposed or just talked to in general,” Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) promised reporters late last month. Now the schedule has been released, whittled down from the originally anticipated eight to a total of six televised hearings.
The Committee announced the first hearing in primetime on June 9th, with four subsequent hearings held during the day and the sixth and final hearing once again scheduled for the evening hours, perhaps to close with the largest possible audience. The names of those testifying have not yet been publicized.
The Jan. 6th Committe, who will reveal bombshell evidence against Trump in six public hearings, has announced its schedule. The first hearing will start at 8P on June 9th. The next 4 hearings will start at 10A on June 13, 15, 16 and 21. The final hearing is 8P on June 23.

While the hearings are expected to deliver plenty of blockbuster information to the public at large, many Twitter users complain that six sessions didn’t seem like nearly enough time.
Jamie Raskin says Jan 6th is even worse than we know. I'm ready for the hearings. Once the public knows everything the DOJ will have to prosecute. I know many people in my town who barely know anything about Jan 6th.
