JUNE 9: Live Updates: January 6 House Committee Hearing on Capitol Insurrection


The sprawling nearly 11-month investigation has led to this moment: blockbuster prime-time hearings on what the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol attack learned.

The committee interviewed more than 1,000 witnesses, publicly subpoenaed about 100 people, including members of Congress, and collected evidence such as documents, text messages and emails as part of its investigation into what happened on January 6, 2021, when supporters of then-President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol.

  • What to expect: The panel will call two witnesses, a Capitol police officer who was injured by rioters and a filmmaker who documented the scene that morning.
  • Where you can (and can’t) watch audiences: The proceedings will be broadcast live here beginning at 8 p.m. ET and will air on cable news networks — with the exception of Fox News, which has announced that it will not cover them live.
  • Who the panel wanted to talk to: Here’s who the House panel wanted to hear from during its 10-month investigation. Some cooperated, others did not.
  • Who is on the panel: Seven Democrats and two Republicans, all nominated by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, sit on the committee. Here is an overview of the members. Representative Bennie Thompson, the top Democrat on the panel, says the United States nearly lost democracy on January 6, 2021.
