Probe of Capitol Riot

Amid partisan acrimony, the first hearing of the Select Committee to Investigate the Jan. 6 Attack on the U.S. Capitol will convene Tuesday. 

The panel investigating the Capitol riot has seven Democrats and two Republicans—all appointed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. 

The original plan was that Pelosi would name eight members and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., would name five. However, when Pelosi rejected two Republican appointees in a highly unusual move, McCarthy pulled the others as well.

Law enforcement officials are scheduled to provide testimony on the opening day about what they saw Jan. 6 as pro-Trump rioters stormed the Capitol. 

Set to testify are Harry Dunn and Aquilino Gonell, officers with the U.S. Capitol Police, as well as Michael Fanone and Daniel Hodges, officers with the Metropolitan Police Department. Read more from The Daily Signal.
