Jan. 6 committee’s second public hearing on insurrection to take place Monday morning

The House committee's second public hearing on the Jan. 6 insurrection will take place Monday morning.

It is a follow-up to the committee's debut hearing on Thursday.

The hearing is scheduled to start at 10 a.m. The timing is a departure from the initial hearing, which was held in prime-time, starting at 8 p.m. It attracted around 20 million viewers, and attracted about 20 million viewers.

A live blog will be featured on NBCNews.com.

In addition to a live blog, there is a live blog.

The committee will hear testimony from Chris Stirewalt, a former political editor for Fox News who has been a fierce critic of the coverage of the 2020 election and former President Donald Trump's election.

Stirewalt works for NewsNation.

William Stepien, a former Trump campaign manager, Benjamin Ginsberg, a longtime GOP attorney, former U.S. attorney BJay Pak and Al Schmidt, who served as a city commissioner in Philadelphia, are also expected to testify.

The largely Democratic nine-member committee is led by Chairman Bennie Thompson of Mississippi and Vice Chair Liz Cheney, R-Wyo.

The six other Democrats are Zoe Lofgren, Adam Schiff and Pete Aguilar of California, Elaine Luria of Virginia, Stephanie Murphy of Florida and Jamie Raskin of Maryland.

The only other GOP member of the panel is Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, an outspoken Trump critic.

After the insurrection, Cheney and Kinzinger were among a handful of House Republicans who broke with their party by voting to impeach Trump last year. Their membership on the Jan. 6 committee was not supported by the GOP leadership, which denounced the panel as illegitimate.

The committee leaders previewed Monday's hearing with Thompson saying it would look at the lies that led people to storm the Capitol to try to stop the transfer of power. Cheney said that the hearing will look into Trump's attempt to convince large parts of the population that fraud had stolen the election from him after learning from his advisers that he had lost to Joe Biden.

The next hearing is scheduled for Wednesday at 10 a.m. The committee plans to hold several more hearings through June and July.
