Live Broadcast, Schedule, Who Will Testify – Deadline

UPDATED: The Commission’s January 6 hearing on Thursday will detail what the panel chair Rep. Bennie Thompson as “the then president’s attempt to undermine the nation’s highest law enforcement agency, the Department of Justice, to support his efforts to overturn the election.”

Thompson plays a clip of testimony from Deputy Attorney General Richard Donoghue in which Donoghue accuses Trump of discussing replacing acting AG, Jeffrey Rosen, with United States Assistant Attorney General for the Environment and Natural Resources Division, Jeff Clark, who is allegedly more supportive of Trump’s efforts to overturn the election. Donoghue will testify in person on Thursday, according to Rep. Thompson. Ted Johnson of Deadline reports that the committee is also working to obtain testimony from Pat Cipollone, the WH adviser under Trump.

For more details on the upcoming trial and witnesses for Thursday, see below.

Tuesday’s hearing featured election officials from Georgia and the Arizona House Speaker. Testimony will focus on alleged attempts by former President Trump to unduly influence state officials. Brad Raffensperger, Georgia’s secretary of state and Gabriel Sterling, one of his top aides, along with former Georgia election worker Wandrea ArShaye “Shaye” Moss testified, as did Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers.

A House elected committee held a televised public hearing detailing its investigation into the January 6, 2021, attacks on the US Capitol. All major broadcast and cable networks have covered audiences, most of them in their entirety.

Chair Thompson told Politico on Wednesday that, following Thursday’s hearing, the committee would resume them in July. Previously, the idea of ​​a future meeting was speculative, but Thompson said the newly obtained evidence required further investigation. The trial will resume after the DPR returns from recess on July 12.

There was no indication yet when Ginni Thomas, a conservative political activist and wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, would testify. Thomas reportedly said he was looking forward to speaking with the commission after being served with requests last week. The request contains a series of suggested dates in early July for his testimony.

Rep. Liz Cheney in her opening statement to the first trial offered an outline of the upcoming hearings and their dates, each of which will have a specific theme and purpose.


Hear 5 postponed from June 15 to Thursday and will target Trump’s alleged plot to influence and possibly replace the U.S. Attorney General to pursue false election claims. Set to testify were Jeffrey Rosen, then Attorney General, his deputy Richard Donoghue and Justice Department official Steve Engel. The trial will begin at 3 p.m. ET.

There is also to be Hear 6 intended to detail how “Trump summoned violent mobs and directed them, illegally, to march on the US Capitol” and how he failed to act to stop the same people when they stormed the Capitol building. No date has been set for this process.

C-SPAN serves as a pool for broadcast and cable media, and will cover the trial with seven cameras. Every network — except Fox News, which did not cover the full trial — will add analysis and reporting.

With piles of data, graphic presentations, thousands of hours of footage and hundreds of photos, the audience will reportedly be far more media than usual. That’s probably part of why James Goldston, former president of ABC News, has advised on the presentation. The official proceedings can also be broadcast at
