This evening, the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol will hold its eighth public hearing in a primetime hearing that will be carried by all the major U.S. television networks. Committee Chair Bennie Thompson, who is recovering from COVID-19 from isolation, will appear remotely. The hearing will feature two White House aides who quit on January 6: former deputy national security adviser Matthew Pottinger and former White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Matthews. Last January, Matthews tweeted, on the first anniversary of the attack, “Make no mistake, the events on the 6th were a coup attempt, a term we’d use had they happened in any other country.” At this evening’s hearing, lawmakers will show unseen outtakes of video Trump made to supporters on January 7, where he resisted pressure from aides to condemn the violence. Tonight’s hearing begins at 8 p.m. Eastern Time. We’ll be live-streaming it in its entirety at democracynow.org, and we’ll air extended excerpts on tomorrow’s broadcast.
