U.S. Capitol riot panel plans at least eight public hearings in June

The U.S. Congress’s official probe into the Jan. 6, 2021, assault on the Capitol by Donald Trump’s supporters plans to hold at least eight public hearings in June, some during “prime time” television evening hours, its chairperson said on Thursday. Democratic Representative Bennie Thompson, who leads the House of Representatives Select Committee on Jan. 6, told reporters at the Capitol some of the hearings would take place during normal workday hours and some in the evening. He had said earlier this week that the panel, which had planned public hearings in May, now planned hearings in June, before issuing a report in early autumn, which would be before the November mid-term elections.
