The House panel investigating the events surrounding the Capitol riot is hoping to have its initial report by the summer. According to sources close to the panel, the House Select Committee investigating the riot wants to prepare an interim report by the summer and a final report ready before the November elections.
The Hill reports:
“We want to tell it from start to finish over a series of weeks, where we can bring out the best witnesses in a way that makes the most sense,” a senior committee aide told the Post. “Our legacy piece and final product will be the select committee’s report.”
Another committee aide told the newspaper that another interim report or a full report could be released in the fall.
Earlier this month, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), the committee chairman, told CNN, “We don’t have a specific date” when it came to public hearings.
“But we’ll have some rolling hearings that will go on a good bit. It will be a non-traditional type of hearing,” said Thompson.
The House panel indicated it was escalating its investigation into former President Trump’s actions regarding the Capitol riot.
