The Jan. 6 insurrection
The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection held a series of high-profile hearings in June. The committee’s next public hearing is scheduled for July 12.
Congressional hearings: The House committee investigating the attack on the US Capitol has conducted a series of hearings to share its findings with the US public. The sixth hearing featured explosive testimony from Cassidy Hutchinson, a former White House aide.
Will there be charges? The committee could make criminal referrals of former President Donald Trump over his role in the attack, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) Said in an interview.
What we know about what Trump did on Jan. 6: New details emerged when Hutchinson testified before the committee and shared what she saw and heard on Jan. 6.
The riot: On Jan. 6, 2021, a pro-Trump mob stormed the US Capitol in an attempt to stop the certification of the 2020 election results. Five people died on that day or in the immediate aftermath, and 140 police officers were assaulted.
Inside the siege: During the rampage, rioters came perilously close to penetrating the inner sanctums of the building while lawmakers were still there, including former vice president Mike Pence. The Washington Post examined text messages, photos and videos to create a video timeline of what happened on Jan. 6.
