Capitol attack panel to hold six public hearings as it aims to show how Trump broke law

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2022/may/23/capitol-attack-panel-public-hearings-trump

"The House select committee investigating the January 6 attack on the Capitol is expected to stage six public hearings in June...with the first and last in prime time, where its lawyers will run through how Trumpís schemes took shape before the election and culminated with the Capitol attack.

The hearings are set to be a pivotal political moment for the country as the panel aims to publicly outline the potentially unlawful schemes that tried to keep the former president in office despite his defeat at the hands of Joe Biden.

A select committee member will lead each of the hearings,..but top investigative lawyers who are intimately familiar with the material will primarily conduct the questioning of witnesses to keep testimony tightly on track.

As the witnesses Ė most of whom are being subpoenaed to appear at the hearings Ė give evidence... the committee attorneys will simultaneously flash texts, photos and videos to illustrate the testimony, the sources said.

While the exact content and timings of the hearings are still subject to change, the sources said, the panel intends to lay out how the efforts to reverse Trumpís defeat crystallized over a critical 65-day period from the time he falsely declared he won the 2020 election until 6 January."

16. CSPAN (any of the 3 CSPANs not being used) usually carries it as does PBS

PBS has ALWAYS carried stuff like this, and that included back during Watergate, where the audio feed was also broadcast on the radio via NPR (where I remember listening to the "boring" Watergate hearings on my transistor radio coming home from school on the train in the afternoons before school let out until fall)!

21. LOL couldn't agree more JF

We had non stop OJ for seemingly months, every day, all day, for the entire trial.

I guess that we are seeing how much the Republican owned U.S. Media values the attempted overthrow of the U.S. and Democracy!!

Surprise, surprise......NOT

13. I'm also pissed about only 6 hearings...

Wtf...I believe the American public needs to see these people forced to face their actions for at least a month, I want every coffee boy and typist brought forward to testify...


😁I would also like a guillotine as a prop in the court room 😁

14. considering the public has the collective attention span of a 2 year old

six hearings may be enough and I suspect if they need more the J6 committee will say so...

and yes on the guillotine..

5. Can anyone tell me

where they will be able to be viewed? I have very basic cable, but would purchase a package to C-SPAN or someplace if I knew where they are.

7. I am pretty sure you can watch them live on YouTube

On the day/hour of a hearing, go to YouTube, type Jan 6 Committee in the search box, after those results come up, click the "Filters" icon on the upper left, then click on "Live" and there should be several links to the vids from sources like WaPo, PBS, ABC, NBC and the Jan 6 Committee's own YouTube channel.

19. Also, I'm pretty sure MSNBC and CNN

will televise them. People have been waiting for this for a long time. It will probably be available on YouTube as well.

12. I hope the promise of media means they'll show it even if witnesses decline.

It should be a "We're doing this with or without you" thing, so that there is motivation to show up.

15. The best thing I heard

was they got some outside help in constructing the presentation. Nothing bores the public in this day and age like a bunch of rambling lawyers and politicians. Make the logic clear and direct.

18. I think since you have people like Adam Schiff, Jamie Raskin and Zoe Lofgren on the Committee

where all 3 were involved in 2 House Impeachment hearings and 2 Senate Impeachment trials, then whatever "Lessons Learned" and recommendations for improvement from those presentations have been compiled, would probably be useful to implement for this.

And that last Impeachment was directly associated with January 6, so they actually have much of the initial "what happened" timeline already done and that could be repurposed as needed to fill in the gaps.
