On Tuesday, Democratic Rep. Bennie G. Thompson, the Chairman of the January 6 Select Panel inquiring about the deadly Capitol riot, said that the committee will hold its ninth public hearing on 28 September. He said he would be chairing the upcoming hearing, and every panel member would’ve the part.
According to Congressman Bennie Thompson, the U.S. Representative for Mississippi’s 2nd District, the January 6th Committee is planning to conduct its ninth public hearing on Sept. 28 at 01:00 PM, Eastern Time, and anticipated it would be the committee’s final, except if something remarkable is gained.
As of now, the next hearing, which the Jan. 6 Committee hasn’t proclaimed, will mark the committee’s last until the panel produces its final report, likely by this year’s end. Mr. Thompson said he couldn’t say that, except if something else develops, the upcoming hearing is the last one. But it isn’t firmed up as things develop.
Committee Chairman also said that the Congressional panel has decided on the theme of the January 6th hearing; however, he didn’t provide details about that. He continued the hearing topic would be one the committee hadn’t looked into before. The Jan. 6 Committee’s spokesman said he had no schedule updates to communicate.
Meadows Obeyed Justice Department’s Subpoena
Donald J. Trump, the former US President, has refused to admit that he lost the 2020 race to Joe Biden, instead reiterating the baseless assertions that Biden’s win was attributable to widespread ballot fraud.
The House Select Panel is attempting to establish what the ex-US President Trump did while thousands of his followers assaulted law enforcement, caused damage to the US Capitol Hill, and sent the Congressional member and Mike Pence, the former US Vice-President, as they met on the day to officially certify the outcomes of the 2020 Presidential election.
Moreover, the U.S. Justice Department is also trying to find out the truth behind the unsuccessful attempts by Donald Trump and his associates to undermine the Presidential election outcomes.
According to media reports, Trump’s White House official, Mark Meadows, has satisfied the obligations of the DOJ’s subpoena, making him the top-ranking Trump administration official to have responded to a witness summon in the Justice Department’s Capitol Hill investigation.
