The House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, breach of the U.S. Capitol will hold a sixth hearing on Tuesday, June 28, after previously stating that it would not be holding more hearings for the remainder of the month.

The decision comes as the committee plans to “present recently obtained evidence and receive witness testimony” according to an advisory released June 27. The hearing will be held at 1 p.m. Eastern time. No further details were provided.

The House committee had previously been scheduled to take a break from hearings until July.

“We’ve taken in some additional information that’s going to require additional work. So rather than present hearings that have not been the quality of the hearings in the past, we made a decision to just move into sometime in July,” Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) told reporters on June 22.

According to multiple reports, Cassidy Hutchinson, a former special assistant to President Donald Trump’s chief of staff Mark Meadows, is set to testify publicly at the hearing.

Her planned appearance, which would mark the first time a White House employee testifies publicly before the committee, was first reported by Punchbowl News.

Hutchinson has already met with the committee on three separate occasions behind closed doors and video testimony from her deposition has been used during earlier panel hearings.

Voter Fraud Concerns

In March, Hutchinson told the committee that Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), Scott Perry (R-Pa.), Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), and other members of the House Freedom Caucus had met with then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows to discuss ways to legally prevent the certification of the 2020 presidential election due to concerns of voter fraud.

That discussion allegedly included considering having then-Vice President Mike Pence refuse to accept the votes from battleground states like Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Arizona, where the results of the election had been contested.

Ultimately, that strategy was not pursued.
