January 6th House Select Committee Announces Schedule For Televised Hearings

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.

WASHINGTON, DC – JULY 27: Chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) (R) and Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) (C), joined by fellow committee members, speak to the media following a hearing of the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol on July 27, 2021 at the Cannon House Office Building in Washington, DC. Members of law enforcement testified about the attack by supporters of former President Donald Trump on the U.S. Capitol. According to authorities, about 140 police officers were injured when they were trampled, had objects thrown at them, and sprayed with chemical irritants during the insurrection.

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.

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.
