Jan. 6 Committee Postpones Public Third Hearing, Next Hearing Set For Thursday 845 views Jun 15, 2022 The January 6 committee announced they would be postponing their third public hearing scheduled for Wednesday to a later date. NBC News' Ali Vitali reports on how the committee's hearing schedule will change.
The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot is postponing its third hearing, which was scheduled on Wednesday and was expected to detail how former President Donald Trump allegedly pushed the Department of Justice to spread his false claims that the 2020 election was rigged against him.
Former acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen and ex-DOJ officials Richard Donoghue and Steve Engel were expected to testify in person at the hearing, NBC News reported, citing Rosen’s attorney.
The committee hasn’t set a new date for the hearing, but it’s already scheduled to hold a separate hearing on Thursday, the committee said.
It was unclear from the panel’s statement whether those witnesses will be moved to Thursday or another date, and a spokesperson for the committee did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The committee kicked off a series of seven hearings Thursday detailing its initial findings from an almost yearlong investigation of the Jan. 6, 2021 attack, when a violent mob of Trump’s supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol. The riot sent members of Congress fleeing for safety and delayed lawmakers from confirming President Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory.

LIVE: January 6th Committee Holds Public Hearing On 2021 Capitol Attack | NBC News 12 waiting Scheduled for Jun 17, 2022 The public hearings held by the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot will have witness testimony and video footage surrounding last year's attack on the Capitol.
Monday marked the second day of public hearings for the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
Close aides, advisers and family members, including daughter Ivanka Trump, testified that they told then-President Donald Trump in the days and weeks after Nov. 3, 2020, that he had lost the White House to Joe Biden and that his increasingly outlandish fraud claims were meritless, according to recordings played by the panel.
Trump continued to push the stolen election lie anyway.
WATCH LIVE: Jan. 6 Committee hearings - Day 3 90,910 watching now Started streaming 63 minutes ago The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack will hold its third public hearing June 16, focused on former President Donald Trump's efforts to pressure former Vice President Mike Pence to reject Congress' official count of Electoral College votes on the day of the attack.
The hearing is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. ET on Thursday, June 16.
The vice president is charged with overseeing the Electoral College vote count -- already certified by individual states -- in a joint session of Congress following a presidential election. Trump called on Pence repeatedly to reject the results confirming President Joe Biden's win, telling supporters in a rally hours before the attack that "it will be a sad day for the country" if his vice president did not come through. Pence said in a statement after the speech he did not have the constitutional authority to do what the president asked. Some rioters began chanting "hang Mike Pence." Committee member Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., said at the start of the hearings that upon hearing this, Trump said "maybe our supporters have the right idea."
The committee postponed a hearing scheduled for June 15 that was meant to focus on Trump's efforts to replace Attorney General Bill Barr, who did not support his claims of voter fraud after the election. Members of the committee said this week they thought they had evidence to indict Trump for seeking to overturn the results of the 2020 election, which they will lay out as part of several public hearings this month.
