January 6th hearings begin tonight (includes video story)

After nearly a year of more than 1,000 interviews, the hearing is here. Today, a Congressional committee will take their work on the investigation of the January 6 insurrection to the public.

“These hearings will be a chance for the country to come together to rally around the truth and unite around the rule of law,” said California Democrat Rep. Pete Aguilar, one of the members of the Select Committee.

The panel is set to unveil unseen material during the primetime hearing. They will go into detail about what they’ve described as a long planned conspiracy to overturn the 2020 Presidential election.

The hearing will even include live testimony from two witnesses: filmmaker Nick Quested, who was involved in the riot, and Capitol police officer Caroline Edwards, who was injured during the insurrection.

The first hearing will set the scene for more to come. It will begin at 8 p.m.
