On Wednesday, the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th Capitol riot suddenly announced it is postponing its Wednesday hearings.
The Hill reports:
Former acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen, his deputy Richard Donoghue and Steven Engle, then the head of the Office of Legal Counsel, were all expected to appear before the committee on Wednesday.
Rosen and Donoghue were some of the committee’s earliest witnesses to voluntarily testify before the panel’s investigators and also spoke with the Senate Judiciary Committee for a report it released in October.
“In our third hearing, you will see that President Trump corruptly planned to replace the Attorney General so the U.S. Justice Department would spread his false stolen election claims,” Vice Chair Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) said during the committee’s first prime-time hearing to preview its coming work.
“In the days before Jan. 6 President Trump told his top Justice Department officials: ‘Just say the election was corrupt and leave the rest to me and the Republican congressmen.’”
Thursday’s hearing is still scheduled to go ahead.
