The first public hearing on the January 6 capital attack is set to begin Thursday after a 10-month investigation.

Representative Adam Schiff, a member of the January 6 committee, says the hearing will show “how one thing led to another, how one line of effort to overturn the election led to another, and ultimately led to terrible violence.”

The committee’s investigation also looked at former President Donald Trump’s role in the events of January 6, who within the GOP was involved, and how they contributed to that deadly day.

According to the committee, the panel will present previously unseen material documenting the insurrection. It will also receive witness testimony, preview additional hearings, and provide the American people with a summary of its findings on the coordinated, multi-step effort to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election and prevent the transfer of power.

On CNN’s State of the Union, former GOP Representative Denver Riggleman weighed in:

“When you look at the totality of the evidence, it’s pretty apparent that at some points, President Trump knew what was going on.”
