This is truly “Must-See TV.” If you can’t watch Thursday, June 16, 1 pm ET, catch a summary later or watch on YouTube or Twitter. You don’t have to sign on to Twitter: just search for @January6thCmte. The Committee staff does a fine job of delivering the hearings in chunks.
Note: The hearing that was planned for Wednesday, June 15, has been postponed; the date for that session has not yet been announced. A spokesperson attributed the delay ‘to a number of scheduling factors, including production timeline and availability of members and witnesses.”
That hearing’s topic is the attempt to “corruptly” use the Department of Justice, which led to threats by some officials to resign, and may touch on members of Congress who sought Presidential pardons for their role in the attempted coup, reported CNBC.
