Jan. 6 committee weighs changes to hearing schedule, citing new evidence

Source: Axios

Members of the House Jan. 6 select committee are discussing whether to upend their hearing schedule amid a deluge of new information.

Why it matters: The hearings have managed to capture public attention with new revelations about former President Trump and his allies' roles in the Capitol riot and the events leading up to it.

What they’re saying: Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.), a member of the panel, told reporters after the committee’s fourth hearing on Tuesday, "The original hearings would have wrapped up in June, but we are picking up new evidence on a daily basis with enormous velocity."

"We're constantly incorporating and including the new information that is coming out," Raskin continued. "We need to get back and meet … we're going to have to take stock of all the new evidence we've received and then figure it out."

1. Must be hot stuff for Jamie Raskin to want to hit pause.

Whatever it takes; they're all doing a bang-up job!

35. If the purpose is to influence the election, then no...

This is still not going to shift votes in November. Trump is not on the ballot, and the really fringe candidates are in safe races.

44. "Shifting votes" is not the purpose. Getting to the truth is.

Jamie Harrison's job is to "shift votes", not the J6 Committee's. If it happens, all the better, but I am looking to see what the DNC is doing to get votes.

Vote getting is definitely not the J6 Committee's role.

5. It would be very interesting to see a hearing focused on the Trump/Congressional, cooperation.

I wonder is that is one of the new kinds of evidence, links between the Representatives and Senators who were complicit in the election theft and or coup attempt.

They have been watching the hearings and either out of fear of getting roped into the vortex or out of patriotism have decided to talk.

31. I was thinking earlier how, without these hearings, so many people with stories to tell

about the attempted coup would have nowhere to tell those stories outside of their families & friends.

34. Thompson gave out a tip line number

Apparently after that, many tips and calls started coming in. Of course, they all have to be vetted.

Yesterday, the committee announced they are adding at least one more public hearing, but one on Thursday about the attempt to replace DoJ leadership should be good.

37. That's a possibility, too.

It could also be what's best for Jim Goldston, their producer, who might be integrating new evidence into hearings as it serves the "nail Trump" goal.

10. They seem to be flying by the seat of their pants; they could be vulnerable to 'poisoning the well'

All it would take is a well planted set of false new "evidence" thrown in at the speed they're moving to gum up the works and public opinion if the GOP saboteurs then revealed it to be wholly untrue.

I hope they're being wary of such tricks, because I wouldn't put it past the GOP (or Putin if he's still involved).

23. It's difficu;t to measure because

there are so many ways people can watch. TV of course, but Meidas Touch is sreaming the hearings, The Lincoln Project is streaming the hearings, I think Occupy Democrats is, and there could be many others. Me, I', watching through house.gov. I was late this morning, and then there was a glitch. and I had to get a grocery delivery in to the house (some into the freezer pretty fast) but the cimmittee has its own YouTube channel I learned last week, and if they are not in session their house.gov page links you to theirYouTube channel where I watched the Opening statements and the last 2 witnesses. I happened to notice the channel has 29.4K subscribers. I'm not one, because I'm not a member of YouTube, and I'm probabl;y not alove. Sure, 30 thousand isn't much, but if all the other outlets and streams are at or above that figure, it adds up.

24. Excellent point... It used to be easy to determine strength of

audience. But this source says that given the interest in the hearings.... Just wondering how they can measure interest? I spent a vacation week with a trumper relative - they just dismissed it all as one sided bias. And when we were all huddled around the TV, they just poo-pooed and carried on elsewhere.

Bottom line if this is just like impeachment, as glorious as that was, and we are not reaching those who have to be swayed, it's just another example of the hallelujah chorus. Sadly

25. I hear you.

Anecdotally, there are people actually being reached. But Anecdots are not the numbers we need. However, even if we can't reach the clinically insane MAGAts, if we can only reach enough sane people who weren't paying attention, and energize them to VOTE - VTE BLUE, that might give us what we need

It might help to read an article on PolitiZoom - just speculation, I grant, but when the DOJ is properly run all we have is speculation - about the possibilityof andidates getting elected who are under sealed indictments ... imc;iding what that might to financially to the state parties of those candidates.

28. They have a free daily newsletter.

Actually, I came back here to shre this which was shared on the blog I inherited:

"BREAKING: In a HUGE win for the January 6 Committee, a new ABC poll shows that public support for a criminal prosecution of Trump for inciting the insurrection has skyrocketed since the public hearings began, up to 58% from 50% before. RT IF YOU SUPPORT THE JANUARY 6 COMMITTEE!" ~ Occupy Democrats

Amd think I read later today that it's up to 60% now..

32. I just hope they are seriously vetting everything and not just excitedly accepting it at face value.

The Repubs could easily be feeding false information in an attempt to trick the committee and expose them later, so I hope the committee is doing serious research and due diligence about all this new data.

39. Caught just the end of an interview with Kurt Bardella

who managed communications for the Rs on the House Oversight Committee before joining, then leaving Breitbart.

He said the J6 committee learned a lot from the televised impeachments. That the way the hearings ran, by rule, didn't allow for any time for information to be digested. Now the hearings are being spread out leaving time for the information to be rehashed, discussed and to sink in. He said the only thing he'd have done differently was to have yesterday's hearing in primetime.

40. Thompson says committee will now

have a hearing Thursday, then resume after the 4th of July recess. That should give staff a couple weeks to review and vet the film, additional info from the National archives and other relevant info they've recently gotten from tipsters

Just now with Katy Tur, I heard Jake Sherman say the media like his outfit should've gotten on board with the hearings sooner. Sherman is one of the younger political reporters who like to infuse their reporting with a big helping of snark. I guess it's good his ilk have come and are coming around.

41. So they'll give us a couple weeks to stew. And in the meantime, the Roe v Wade decision

will be released.

That's good -- the initial burst of attention to Roe v Wade won't be competing with the hearings.

42. The 4th of July congressional recess starts

next week. Hadn't thought about the Roe or other decisions, but they'll have had their chance to run through the news cycle by the time the public hearings resume.

Also, Fani Willis has stated she'll have a decision on whether to charge Trump with election interference in GA or not by the end of this month.

I think the committee has gotten a lot of new information to process as well.
