US Capitol Disturbances: committee examining January 6 riots has announced unexpected last-minute hearing


(MENAFN) The committee examining the assault of the US Capitol building on January 6, 2021, has planned a last-minute hearing.

The live session is set for Tuesday afternoon "to present recently obtained evidence and receive witness testimony".

Just a few days ago, the committee announced that its public hearings would be postponed until next month.

It is unknown who will testify, but the news comes after a series of public hearings in June that established a clear relationship between the violence and former President Donald Trump's attempts to retain power.

Plenty of witnesses showed up before the committee, including Trump White House staff, members of Mr Trump's administration, lawyers for the former president, and Republican officials from across the nation, to share information of what they knew about an orchestrated attempt to prevent Joe Biden from taking over the presidency.

Just last week, Bennie Thompson, a Democratic Party delegate from Mississippi, said the committee necessitated more time to go over fresh documentary evidence received from British filmmaker Alex Holder.
