Jan 6 panel

The House select committee has received significant new evidence related to Donald Trump’s effort to overturn his election loss, prompting the Committee to add additional hearings, Politico reports.

The new streams of evidence have necessitated a change to the panel’s hearing schedule, including the potential for additional hearings, Rep. Bennie Thompson, chair of the Jan. 6 select committee, said Wednesday, according to the report.

After the committee’s Thursday hearing — which will focus on former President Donald Trump’s effort to deploy the Justice Department to help overturn the 2020 presidential election — House investigators will resume hearings in July, Thompson told reporters.

The Committee has solicited testimony and other evidence during the public hearings and Thompson said that additional witnesses have come forward as a result.
