Jan. 6 Capitol attack committee hearing – Chicago Tribune
The committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection at the U.S. Capitol will hold a prime-time hearing at 8 p.m. ET Thursday.
With personal accounts and gruesome videos the 1/6 committee expects the prime-time hearing to begin to show that America’s tradition of a peaceful transfer of presidential power came close to slipping away. It will reconstruct how the president, Donald Trump, refused to concede the 2020 election, spread false claims of voter fraud and orchestrated an unprecedented public and private campaign to overturn Joe Biden’s victory.
Early Thursday, Ryan Kelley, one of five Republican candidates for Michigan governor and an ardent defender of former President Donald Trump, was charged with misdemeanors for his role in the 2021 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
