Last night the US House Select Committee held its first public hearing on the January 6 attack on the US Capital.
For the two hour duration, I was glued to my screen re-living the moments happened one and a half years ago; now, with the aids of words from the witness testimonies and video footage.
Aside from the emotional presentation, I see the biggest accomplishment was the Committee’s findings made its way into the record. Especially, something this important and historical should not be left to hearsay.
People are smart. They will draw their own conclusions. But foremost, let’s captured what happened eighteen months ago, into the Congressional Record. Without it, memory fades, words get twisted, and mistake repeats. People do get distracted by other events.
And last night’s hearing was the opening. Next hearing is scheduled on next Monday at 10 AM, followed by one on Wednesday at 10 AM, and one Thursday at 1 PM. Best to hear it live. But if you are not available, there is always the Congressional Record.
What’s your takeaway from the hearing?
Update 06/14/2022 – the Wednesday hearing has been postponed, date to be determined.
