J6 hearing tonight on July the 21st and will start at about 8pm. MSNBC and other news programs plan on starting their stuff at 7.30pm or 7pm. So be sure to tune in early.
It will be about Trump and the 187 minutes (over 3 hours) he did nothing as the Capitol was sacked.
This is supposed to be the season finale to the J6 hearings. It was originally supposed to be the series finale but with each hearing more information was given to the committee and they are supposed to have another round of hearings starting in August. But nothing has been officially announced just yet.
Here is a 5 minute clip from New Day on CNN about the hearing.
The committee has completed seven hearings so far. Here's what happened at each:
Day 1: The first hearing on June 9 described a “sprawling, multistep conspiracy" to stop the peaceful transfer of power spearheaded by Trump. Read the takeaways.
Day 2: On June 13, Trump aides and former Attorney General Bill Barr gave explosive testimony describing how they advised Trump not to declare victory on election night and how he ignored evidence he lost the election. Read the takeaways.
Day 3: Thursday's hearing revealed efforts by Trump's lawyers and allies to convince Pence to help overturn the election, despite knowing that those efforts were likely illegal. Luttig told the committee if Pence carried out Trump's plan, it would have "plunged America" into what he says would've been "tantamount to a revolution within a constitutional crisis." Read the takeaways.
Day 4: State officials in Georgia and Arizona told the Jan. 6 committee during Tuesday's hearing they received threats after they refused to abide by Donald Trump's efforts to overturn 2020 election results. Read the takeaways.
Day 5: Former Justice Department officials told the committee about the pressure Trump put on them to investigate baseless claims of election fraud and his ultimately failed plan to install an Attorney General who was sympathetic to the conspiracy. Read the takeaways.
Day 6: Former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson portrayed Donald Trump as reckless and unhinged, describing how he knew participants at his Jan. 6 rally were armed but wanted them to march to the Capitol anyway – and he wanted to join them. Hutchinson also revealed White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows asked for a pardon after the Capitol riot, along with Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani. Recounting a conversation with the chief of Trump's security detail, she said one Secret Service agent was physically attacked by Trump for refusing to drive him to the Capitol while the mob was bearing down on it. Read the takeaways.
Day 7: Former White House counsel Pat Cipollone described in video testimony a vitriolic Oval Office meeting on Dec. 18, 2020, where outside advisers to former President Donald Trump hurled insults at White House staffers pushing back on efforts to overturn the election, days after the Electoral College voted for President-elect Joe Biden. A meeting two days prior led to a draft executive order for the Defense Department to seize voting machines and name Powell a special counsel to investigate. Trump’s tweet on Dec. 19, 2020 generated widespread interest on Twitter and spurred his supporters – including extremist groups like the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers – to focus their efforts on Jan. 6, when Congress would certify the Electoral College count. Read the takeaways.
Cassidy Hutchinson testimony set audience record for a daytime Jan. 6 hearing 13 million!
Her testimony attracted 13,231,000 viewers across all major networks, including ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and MSNBC, according to Nielsen ratings data. This total topped the previous four hearings, which each drew about 10 million to 11 million viewers. The first Jan. 6 hearing, which aired in prime time on June 9, drew about 20 million viewers.
Lake said that according to her research, 80% of Americans want accountability for those involved in the Jan. 6 violence, including elected officials. The hearings may affect how Americans vote in upcoming elections too, she said.
“There is an evolving narrative. People see it as a crime, but they also see it as a criminal conspiracy,” she said. “They demand accountability, and they’re very serious about what they consider accountability.
“And we are seeing these numbers increase quite dramatically over the course of the hearings, including with independents who traditionally don’t pay very much attention.”
