WATCH: Rep. Kinzinger Drops Preview — What Trump Was Doing During Capitol Attack

The last of the scheduled public hearings of the January 6th Committee is hours away, but the panel has shared in advance that the focus will be on Donald Trump’s actions during the attack, including the efforts to spur him to calling off the mob, and his reactions. Now Adam Kinzinger, one of two Republicans on the panel, is sharing a little more.

In advance of the Thursday evening hearing, Kinzinger tweeted a short video preview. In less than a minute, the clip gives a sneak peek at the witnesses viewers can expect to hear from, including Trump’s press secretary Kayleigh McEnany and his White House Counsel, Pat Cipollone.

Cipollone’s testimony has been of particular interest, after another witness testified about things he allegedly said in front of her describing Trump’s behavior, and Trump and his allies accused her of lying.

In short, Cassidy Hutchinson testified that Cipollone and Mark Meadows — Trump’s Chief of Staff and Hutchinson’s boss, who has not been willing to testify — tried to urge Trump to call off the attackers, and afterwards discussed that Trump had said VP Mike Pence ‘deserved’ the threats on his life. After Trump responded with attacks on Hutchinson’s character, Cipollone agreed to be interviewed on the record.

The clip hints, among other things, that this hearing will finally reveal what Cipollone himself witnessed of Trump’s behavior and demeanor regarding the mob, and regarding Pence’s safety.

Aside from that, the clear indication from the short snippets included is that testimony can be expected to support the assertion that Trump spent the hours of attack sitting in the dining room watching the violence on television, and apparently refusing to act to put an end to it.
