The Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the U.S. Capitol - sometimes referred to as the Jan. 6 committee - formed in June to uncover information about the violent and deadly riots in Washington early last year.

The committee seeks to learn more, through witness testimony, text messages, phone calls, documents, and other evidence, about how the attack came together as well as “every minute” of that day at the White House, according to committee member Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo.

Over several months, the nine-member committee of seven Democrats and two Republicans has interviewed hundreds of witnesses and subpoenaed dozens of others, including members of former President Donald Trump’s inner circle.

In 2022, the committee plans to hold weeks of public hearings to reveal what they found.
