Watch Live: House January 6 committee holds public hearings on its investigation

The fifth hearing of the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection at the Capitol will focus on former President Donald Trump’s pressure on the Department of Justice to help him overturn the 2020 election.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger, one of two Republicans on the committee, will lead Thursday’s hearing, set for 3 p.m. It is expected to last roughly two hours like previous hearings.

This hearing was supposed to take place last Wednesday but was postponed for what panel member Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., called “technical issues.”
