IMPORTANT: Watch the Jan 6 Committee public hearings!!!

Beginning at 8:00 PM, Thursday, June 9, the House of Representatives January 6 Committee will hold public hearings that will be televised.

It is IMPORTANT that we watch these hearings — pay attention, take notes — because — what happened on Jan 6 was a coup intended to destroy the results of an election and install an illegitimate President.  The coup failed, however, a failed coup is merely a dry run for the next coup.

How to watch the Jan 6 Committee hearings:

Thursday, June 9, 8:00 PM Eastern Time.  Hearings will be carried in their entirety on CNN, MSNBC, CSPAN, possibly NPR.

Committee leaders have indicated that the focus on Thursday will be on presenting a complete timeline of the riot, beginning with the 2020 election and extending through the riot itself and its aftermath.

Democrats involved in the investigation have said the evidence they present will connect the dots between the months long campaign that President Donald J. Trump and his allies waged to discredit the outcome of the election and the effort by rioters on Jan. 6 to disrupt the congressional certification of the results.

Monday, June 13,  10:00 AM Eastern Time.

The Monday and future hearings this month are expected to focus on other issues, such as the effort by Mr. Trump to install a loyalist atop the Justice Department, the pressure campaign on Vice President Mike Pence to prevent Congress from certifying the Electoral College count and the way Mr. Trump encouraged supporters — including far-right and militia groups — to come to Washington for the rally on Jan. 6 that immediately preceded the attack.

The panel has yet to announce dates and times for subsequent sessions, but it is expected to hold two more next week and others the following week.
