A series of hearings to be held over the next few weeks begins with a prime-time session on Thursday night, at which a nine-member commission plans to review its investigation over 11 months. The panel interviewed more than 1,000 people, and only fragments of this testimony were made public, mostly through the courts.
What you need to know before hearing:
When will the hearing take place?
The first of six hearings is scheduled for Thursday at 8pm EDT. It will take place in the large office building of the House in the US Capitol Complex. Lawmakers plan for witnesses to testify and show a series of never-before-seen images and exhibits relating to the beginning of the uprising and the attack itself.

What will the hearing entail?
The first hearing is expected to set the table for the remaining subsequent hearings. The committee, which consists of seven Democrats and two Republicans, plans to outline several areas of information it gathered during its investigation.
So far, the commission’s investigation has been divided into a number of key areas, including efforts by former President Trump and his allies to question the election and halt certification of President Joe Biden’s victory; financing and organizing rallies in Washington that took place before the attack; security breaches by Capitol Police and federal agencies; and the actions of the rioters themselves.
Will there be new details about the uprising?
Several committee members have promised to receive new explosive information as a result of public hearings, but it remains unclear what this will entail.
The hearings are expected to be comprehensive, but not the last word from the committee. He plans to publish further reports on his findings, including recommendations for legislative reform, ahead of the by-elections.
