The January 6th House Select Committee announced Wednesday that its schedule of hearings will now run into July as they’ve pushed back any new hearings after Thursday’s noon broadcast for a few weeks to consider new evidence.
One of the most compelling additions to the Committee’s already impressive treasure trove of evidence against Trump –and time-consuming to review– just might be the hours of footage shot by British documentary filmmaker Alex Holder, who received a subpoena from the Committee in regard to footage and interviews he and his team shot while following Donald Trump and his inner circle throughout the 2020 presidential campaign. Holder has fully complied with all of the Committee’s requests and will sit for an interview on Thursday, according to a press statement from his lawyer.Holder had access to Trump, as well as his family members and associates, while directing a documentary series surrounding the final six weeks of the ill-fated reelection campaign in 2020. The footage Holder gave to the Committee includes interviews with Trump and his family leading up to the election, as well as never-before-seen footage of the Capitol riot.

Politico first reported that the Committee is interested in seeing the raw footage Holder filmed of the events of January 6th, the discussions of the integrity of the 2020 election, and interviews with Trump, Pence, and several Trump family members from September 2020 until the present.

Holder’s cooperation and the footage itself came as a surprise to Trump associates, it was also reported. Rolling Stone revealed that several former officials on Trump’s reelection campaign have claimed they did not know that the documentary about his reelection campaign was being filmed in the first place, and heard about it for the first time after seeing news reports about the subpoena. “What the f*** is this?” a former top Trump 2020 official messaged the publication after seeing the Politico story.
