After a two-month hiatus, the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol returns for a public hearing.
The panel is planning to vote to subpoena former president Donald Trump, according to three individuals with knowledge of the vote. The individuals did not say whether they are seeking the former president’s direct testimony or more documents beyond those the committee has already received.
The committee is also expected to highlight newly obtained Secret Service records showing how Trump was repeatedly alerted to brewing violence that day — and still sought to stoke the conflict — as it seeks to tie together its case for Trump’s culpability for the dark day in U.S. history. No live witnesses are expected to testify.
