For the last 10 months, a House select committee has been investigating last year’s deadly attack on the US Capitol.

Starting Thursday night, we begin to learn what it has uncovered.

The prime-time public hearing is expected to be a broad overview of the panel’s findings, setting the stage for subsequent hearings that will continue next week.

The committee is presenting previously unseen material related to the January 6, 2021, insurrection, when supporters of former President Donald Trump breached the Capitol, attacking officers and destroying parts of the building.

The panel has been working toward a thesis that Trump’s obsession with his election loss and his peddling of false claims about the results is what laid the groundwork for the riot.
