The third hearing on January 6 will be held at 10:00 a.m. on June 15, 2022, when the House Committee will resume the schedule for televised hearings detailing its investigation into the January 6, 2021 attack on the US Capitol is described.

Hearings began on Thursday, June 9, 2022 and the second day of hearings was on Monday, June 13. Up to eight days of hearings could be held in June, and hearings could continue with a final hearing in September, according to a schedule compiled by Deadline.

Here’s what you need to know:

The committee’s third hearing on Wednesday, June 15, will focus on an alleged conspiracy by former President Donald Trump to influence or possibly replace the US Attorney General to lend legitimacy to false election claims, according to The Washington Post. The Post reported that Jeff Rosen, then-US Attorney General, will testify along with his deputy Richard Donoghue and Justice Department official Steve Engel. The testimony of the three men is scheduled for the morning of June 15th.

“Rosen was the nation’s top law enforcement official during Trump’s final days in office. He was pressured by Trump allies to send a Justice Department letter to state officials about false allegations of voter fraud — thereby giving them legitimacy — and declined,” the Post reported.

Each hearing day will feature a theme, the Post reported. The subject of Wednesday’s hearing is to provide evidence that Trump “corruptly plotted” to replace acting Justice Department officials with people who were his allies.

The hearing will resume on the fourth day, Thursday 16 January at 1pm. The formal timeline for subsequent hearing dates has not yet been announced.

Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) said during the opening remarks that the attack on the US Capitol was directly related to Trump’s false claims that the election was stolen.

“The Jan. 6 attack was a direct and predictable result of Mr. Trump’s decision to use false allegations of voter fraud to overthrow the election and retain power,” Lofgren said during the televised hearing.

Rep. Liz Cheney, vice chair of the committee, said Trump has a seven-part plan “overseen by President Trump to overturn the 2020 election.” The second day of hearings should lay out one of the first parts of this plan, she said in her opening remarks on Monday.

“Today we look at the first part of that plan: President Trump’s attempt to convince millions of Americans that overwhelming fraud stole the election from him,” Cheney said.

Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., chair of the committee, said Trump knew he lost the election.

“But he betrayed the trust of the American people. He ignored the will of the voters. He lied to his supporters and the country. And he tried to stay in office after the people voted him out – and the courts upheld the will of the people,” Thompson said.
