How to Watch January 6 Hearings Online and on TV; Schedule & Witnesses – Deadline

A select House committee is holding televised public hearings detailing its investigation into the January 6, 2020 attack on the United States Capitol. The first hearing begins Thursday at 8 p.m. ET. The second will take place on Monday, June 13 at 10 a.m. ET. There could be up to eight days of hearings before the end of the month, and more in September. You can view them all below.

The commission plans to reveal never-before-seen footage of the Capitol attack, conduct interviews with Trump White House officials and also play videos of her interviews with Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, the Washington said. Post.

The hearing will also reportedly include testimonies from Nick Quested, a documentary filmmaker who followed the right-wing group The Proud Boys when the Capitol was attacked, and Caroline Edwards, a Capitol police officer who was injured.

C-SPAN will act as the pool for broadcast and cable media and will cover the hearing with seven cameras. Every network — except Fox News, which doesn’t cover the hearings in full — will add analysis and reporting.

With mountains of data, graphic presentations, thousands of hours of footage and hundreds of photos, the hearing will reportedly be much more media-intensive than usual. That’s probably part of why James Goldston, the former president of ABC News, advised on the presentation.
