The House Jan. 6 Committee is considering holding a public hearing this month as part of its investigation into the Capitol attack, Punchbowl reports.
The committee is reportedly looking at Sept. 28 as a possible date for the hearing.
Panel members will hammer out the next steps during a retreat next Tuesday, according to Punchbowl.
There’ve been eight public committee hearings so far. The last one was held on July 21, during which the panel laid out how then-President Donald Trump did nothing to rein in the MAGA supporters that he had riled up — even as they were screaming about hanging then-Vice President Mike Pence as they ransacked the Capitol.
Not much else has emerged from the committee since the last hearing.
However, committee member Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Liz Cheney, the vice chair of the committee, said last month that the panel is in talks with Pence’s legal counsel about the ex-vice president potentially testifying.
Additionally, the committee has obtained two years’ worth of text messages from far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ phone, according to CNN. The committee requested the phone records from a lawyer representing the Sandy Hook families who were suing Jones for defamation.
The lawyer, Mark Bankston, had gotten the texts from Jones’ defense attorney in what appeared to be a massive blunder.
