The January 6th Congressional Committee will hold its next hearing on Thursday night in primetime. THIRTEEN will carry the live broadcast. Lawmakers on the January 6th Committee have already accused former president Donald Trump of failing to call off the Capitol insurrection for hours. This week’s hearing is expected to reveal more evidence of what the former president was doing on January 6.
Judy Woodruff will anchor the PBS NewsHour live coverage with contributions from NewsHour correspondents and expert analysis from guests. PBS NewsHour coverage will extend online at pbs.org/newshour.
The committee has announced that the proceeding will be approximately two hours in length, but the conclusion time for coverage is to be determined.
