What to expect from the 2nd Jan 6th Monday committee hearing
Chairman Bennie Thompson delivers his opening statement as the House January 6 committee holds its
first hearing of the month on Capitol Hill, Thursday, June 9, 2022, in Washington.
The House select committee investigating the January 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol will hold its second public hearing of the month on Monday.
The hearing is expected to detail how then-President Donald Trump "engaged in a massive effort
to spread false and fraudulent information" even though "Trump and his advisers knew that he
had, in fact, lost the election," according to panel Vice Chair Liz Cheney, a Wyoming Republican,
who outlined on Thursday what the committee plans to unveil over its seven June hearings.
Monday's hearing will include testimony from conservative Republican election attorney Ben Ginsberg. Former Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien
was to testify but his wife is in labor and he was released from his subpoena for the day, a source familiar with the matter tells CNN.
