The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol will hold the eighth and last (for now) in a series of hearings on July 21 at 8:00pm ET. The prime-time hearing, led by Reps. Adam Kinzinger and Elaine Luria, will focus on the events that occurred in the West Wing during the 187 minutes between the breach of the Capitol and Trump’s call to his supporters to leave the building. Former White House aides Matthew Pottinger and Sarah Matthews are expected to testify. Pottinger, a former deputy national security adviser in the Trump administration, and Matthews, a former deputy press secretary, both resigned on Jan. 6, 2021. 

Committee chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson, who tested positive for the coronavirus earlier this week, will be leading the hearing by video conference. The select committee intends to continue its investigation  with plans to release a report in the fall and may hold additional hearings later in the year.
