Watch live coverage on June 9 of a public hearing from the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol. Chairman Bennie Thompson, a Mississippi Democrat, has said the panel’s work seeks to “uncover the facts, tell the American people the full story of January 6th and ensure that nothing like that day ever happens again.”
This is the first in a series of eight public hearings. Afterward, the committee of seven Democrats and two Republicans will report its findings sometime before the midterm elections on Nov. 8. Former President Donald Trump and his Republican allies continue to call the probe a witch hunt focused on scoring political points.
Libby Casey will anchor uninterrupted coverage from The Washington Post newsroom, with reporting and analysis from Rhonda Colvin on Capitol Hill, Hannah Jewell, Mary Beth Albright and James Hohmann.
