Those who have been paying close attention to the Jan. 6 hearings know that the House Select Committee has announced it will hold its next hearing in September after a hiatus. But when will the next hearing be televised? Read on for the committee’s schedule.

The next hearing of the select committee will be held at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, September 28, 2022, the committee said in a brief statement. The show should last about two hours.

The committee did not disclose the subject or whether there would be witnesses to testify in person as of today, September 22, 2022.

Here are some highlights from the hearings so far:

Cassidy Hutchinson was an assistant to former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, who came to the fore in a surprise Jan. 6 hearing on June 28, 2022. Read more about them here.

Hutchinson testified before the US House Select Committee on the Jan. 6 attack about Jan. 6-related conversations she said she overheard and recounted what she described as a tirade from then-President Donald Trump. She said he didn’t care that the protesters had guns because she said they weren’t there to hurt him. Her testimony was played during primetime coverage of the hearings on Thursday, July 21, 2022.

The committee said the June 28 hearing was scheduled “to present recently obtained evidence and obtain testimony.” The committee originally planned to take a short break until the week of July 11th.

Hutchinson said in her statement that Trump responded to news that protesters had guns and said he didn’t care.

“I heard the president say something like, ‘I don’t give a damn that they have guns. You are not here to hurt me. Take away the damn magazines. Let my people in, they can march to the Capitol from here. Let people in, take away the damn magazines.”

Hutchinson testified that Trump was furious that he was wheeled back to the White House after his speech that day, where he told protesters to “fight like hell.” She said he jumped on the steering wheel to take it from a Secret Service agent.

“I’m the fucking President,” Hutchinson heard Trump say, according to her statement.

Hutchinson went on to say that when Meadows learned of the violence at the Capitol, he had “almost no reaction.”

The June 28 hearing was the sixth the committee held to present evidence related to the US Capitol riot.

Federal Judge J. Michael Luttig had strong words for the House Selection Committee at his hearing on June 16, 2022, saying he would never have allowed Pence to overturn the election. Read more about him here.

“I would have put my body across the street before I let a vice president overturn an election,” Luttig testified.

Twitter users echoed the scathing statement.

“Luttig says he put my body across the street before I let the vice president overturn the 2020 election,” Scott Dworkin wrote on Twitter. “I felt that.”

Historian Heather Cox Richardson commented on the importance of Luttig’s testimony given his reputation among conservatives.

“Luttig says wrong voters have no legal authority” she wrote on Twitter. “Luttig enjoys an incredibly high reputation in conservative circles. So that is a very significant testimony.”

“Luttig says Eastman told Trump there was both legal and historical precedent for the VP to overturn the election.” She added. “Says they were all ‘wrapped around the axle’ by Eastman’s historical evidence claim.”
