The House Select Committee investigating the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol is holding a series of public hearings. The committee has interviewed hundreds of witnesses and collected tens of thousands of pages of documents as part of its investigation into the deadly attack. The eighth hearing is on July 21 at 5 p.m. PT.

Today’s focus is expected to be on former President Trump's inaction to stop the attack — and the 187-minute timeline when he stayed silent inside the White House when the riot unfolded.
