Watch live coverage of public hearing from the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol. This hearing will focus on President Donald Trump’s efforts to pressure the Justice Department to help overturn the 2020 presidential election won by Joe Biden. Shortly before the attack on Congress, senior Justice Department officials resisted Trump’s attempt to oust the acting head of the department, Jeffrey Rosen, if Rosen didn’t agree to have the agency publicly suggest the 2020 election results were invalid.
This is the fifth in a series of public hearings. Afterward, the committee of seven Democrats and two Republicans will report its findings sometime before the midterm elections on Nov. 8. Trump and his Republican allies continue to call the probe a witch hunt focused on scoring political points.
Libby Casey will anchor uninterrupted coverage from The Washington Post newsroom, with reporting and analysis from Rhonda Colvin on Capitol Hill, Hannah Jewell, Mary Beth Albright and James Hohmann.
