Trump family depositions expected in Jan. 6 Capitol riot hearing
Tonight the House committee investigating the January 6th 2021 riot at the U.S. capitol will hold a public hearing live on television and online. The committee says it will provide an initial summary of its findings about the quote “coordinated, multi-step effort to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election and prevent the transfer of power.”
Rep. Jamie Raskin – D-MD – 06-06-22 “You don’t almost knock over the U.S. government by accident.”
Here’s what to expect:
The committee will present previously unseen material documenting January 6th. That will include video from depositions of former White House officials and Trump family members.
U.S. Capitol Police Officer Caroline Edwards will testify about what happened when she came face to face with rioters on the Capitol’s West Plaza. Officer Edwards suffered a traumatic brain injury which has prevented her from returning to the Capitol Police first responder unit.
Documentarian Nick Quested will share what he saw with his film crew when the violence began.
The Producer: The committee hired former ABC News President James Goldston to produce the hearings and make them more compelling for a television audience.
