Jan. 6 panel announces September hearing

The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack has officially announced that it will hold its first fall hearing on Sept. 28.

Committee members declined to elaborate on the subject of the hearing scheduled for 1 p.m. that day.

The hearing came as panelists said they continued to get new details about the Capitol riots throughout the August recess.

The panel did not announce any in-person witnesses for the hearing, and Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) said they have not yet decided whether there will be any.

Unlike other hearings, which are largely chaired by one or two lawmakers from the nine-member panel, Thompson said that at next Wednesday’s hearing, “every member will have an appropriate role in the process.”

Thompson also said the hearing — although it may not be the last — could be the last before mid-November.

“I would say at this point it is but it’s not set in stone. If more information is forthcoming from the hearing, that’s always a possibility,” he told reporters on Wednesday.

In recent months, the committee has interviewed a number of former Trump administration cabinet officials, including former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

The panelists also said the committee had made progress in its review of the Secret Service’s communications on January 5 and January 6.
