Committee News

One of the most popular features of Capitol Hill is the Committee News section. Members of Congress can read about the latest developments by visiting the website. If you are a member of the committee, you can submit news for publication. Be sure to provide the title and a brief paragraph. You can use up to 1000 characters, or 200 words, in your news submission. The panel will publish the news as it is received. This will allow the panel to get a fuller picture of the situation.

Currently, the committee will hold prime time hearings on Thursday. In addition, veteran network executive James Goldston, former president of ABC News and Nightline’s storytelling expert, has joined the committee as an adviser. Goldston has helped the committee shape its material, which is made up of more than 140,000 documents, disclosures and audio clips from over a thousand interviews. Ultimately, the hearings will determine if Trump will make any public comments in response to the committee’s findings.

The House Intelligence Committee, which is led by Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), has been investigating the president’s 2020 election strategy and his insurgency at the Capitol. Hearings on the issue are expected to continue through late June. The hearings will reveal previously unknown material regarding the presidential election. In the meantime, members of Congress will be busy investigating a number of issues related to the investigations. However, the hearings may not be enough to get Trump to step down.

Meanwhile, the investigation into the Trump Administration’s handling of the American people’s data and information is ongoing. A panel investigating the matter is examining allegations that the Secret Service deleted documents and text messages. The Secret Service denies all allegations, saying the deletions were necessary for the migration of the company’s systems. Despite this denial, the panel has issued new subpoenas against other members of Trump’s inner circle.

As new evidence comes to light, the committee’s timeline is sliding further into the calendar. Initially, the nine-member panel had planned to conclude hearings by the end of June, but has now pushed two into July. Cipollone’s deposition has also thrown the programming off kilter. Tuesday’s hearing was shortened to focus on her testimony, while the eighth hearing has been postponed to next week so committee staff can finalize a script.

While the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol was on a break for public hearings, they are already planting the seeds for September’s reaping. The investigation has largely focused on Trump’s behavior on the night of Jan. 6 and how the incident unfolded. Although it may be premature to conclude that the President was involved in a conspiracy, there is a lot of evidence to suggest that he knew of the threat before it could take place.
