The House Select Committee announced today, June 28, 2022, that it would hold a surprise January 6 hearing to present new evidence that has recently come to light. The hearing begins at 1 p.m. Eastern time.

The committee said the hearing was scheduled “to present recently obtained evidence and obtain testimony.”

The original plan was to take a short break until the week of July 11th.

Today’s hearing marks the sixth day the committee meets to present evidence related to the US Capitol riot. The most recent hearing was on June 23, 2022, when the committee presented evidence that former President Donald Trump was pressuring the US Department of Justice to help it overturn the results of the 2020 election.

Trump posted on his new social media platform as Day 5 of the hearing unfolded

Trump, who is blocked from Twitter, used his new social media platform, Truth Social, to downplay the testimony presented on Jan. 5 of the Jan. 6 hearing on Thursday, June 23.

“Has there ever been a time in Congress when a member is permitted, without any cross-examination, to read long and often untrue statements, not from notes or other papers, but from a teleprompter?” Trump posted.

“This is a kangaroo court like we’ve never seen in this country!” he added.

He also repeated the false and disproved allegations of voter fraud, citing the film 2000 Mules.

“Such lies of the unchosen!” he wrote.


“I would have put my body across the street before I would have allowed a vice president to overturn the election,” J. Michael Luttig said on the third day of the hearing

Retired federal judge J. Michael Luttig had strong words for the House selection committee on the third day of the June 16 hearing, saying he would never have allowed former Vice President Mike Pence to overturn the election results.

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

Luttig said former President Donald Trump “launched” a war on democracy “to stay in power.”

“It is breathtaking that these arguments were even conceived, let alone made, by the President of the United States at this perilous moment in history,” Luttig wrote in his statement. “Had the Vice President of the United States obeyed the President of the United States, America would have been thrown instantly into revolution within a crippling constitutional crisis.”

Luttig was among those who cleared up confusion among some of Trump’s supporters by saying Pence doesn’t have the power to change the election results.

“The vice president’s sole responsibility and authority under the Constitution is to count Electoral College votes as cast,” Luttig said wrote in the tweet on the morning of January 5, 2021.
