Watch: Jan. 6 committee calls surprise hearing during recess

Jun 28, 2022, 9:50 AM

The House Jan. 6 committee announced a surprise hearing for Tuesday, saying it would present “recently obtained evidence and receive witness testimony.”

The session is set to begin at 10 a.m. Arizona time.

It’s the sixth public hearing of the month on the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. It was announced with only 24 hours’ notice after the committee said last week there wouldn’t be another until July.

Lawmakers are on a two-week recess.

The panel is expected to hear testimony from Cassidy Hutchinson, who was a top White House aide.

Hutchinson, a special assistant and aide to Trump’s chief of staff, Mark Meadows, has already provided a trove of information to the committee and its investigators and sat for multiple interviews behind closed doors.

In brief excerpts of testimony revealed in court filings, Hutchinson told the committee she was in the room for White House meetings where challenges to the election were debated and discussed, including with Republican lawmakers.

Previous witnesses have included Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers, who told the panel on June 21 of calls from Trump allies trying to pressure him to support decertifying the state’s election results.
