Update – Thur., June 16 @ 11:00 a.m. – The third Jan 6 Select Committee hearing is on now on all three broadcast channels KREX 5, KJCT 8 and KKCO 11, also PBS 18-4 World Channel.
The U.S. House of Representatives January 6 Select Committee is holding six hearings to inform the public about the results of their year-long investigation into the attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 by domestic right wing extremist Trump supporters. The first hearing was last Thursday, June 9.
The Committee seems to be laying out a roadmap for the Justice Department to prosecute Trump criminally, as the House committee has explicitly said Trump committed the crime of conspiring to overturn an election.
The next hearing will be the Committee’s second, and it is scheduled to start Monday morning, June 13 at 8:00 a.m. local time (Mountain Daylight Time). Here in Grand Junction it will be broadcast on KKCO Channel 11 (NBC) and on KJCT Channel 8 (ABC).
The third hearing will start at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday morning, June 15.
The fourth is on Thursday, June 16 and will start at 11:00 a.m.
All hearings are two hours long. KKCO and KJCT will broadcast all of them. The Select Committee takes a ten minute break around the middle of each 2 hour hearing.

From National Public Radio, here is a list of the new information revealed in the first hearing last Thursday:
- Not previously publicly seen video footage from police body cameras, Capitol hallway and office footage, as well as police radio communication;
- Trump Attorney General Bill Barr telling investigators in his on-camera deposition that he told Trump his allegations of election fraud were “bullshit.” [Yes, this was broadcast on national television.] Barr revealed this in his book, but it carries different weight with him telling it to a congressional committee;
- Ivanka Trump, the former president’s daughter and a former senior adviser in his White House, saying she accepted what Barr had to say. “I respect Attorney General Barr,” she was shown saying, “so I accepted what he was saying.”
- Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley saying Vice President Mike Pence was being direct and wanting the military’s help at the Capitol. The response from the White House, on the other hand, was very different. Trump’s Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, Milley said, wanted instead to shape a “narrative” that Trump was in control. Milley said that reeked of “politics, politics, politics,” and it was a “red flag”;
- Rep. Liz Cheney said Rep. Scott Perry of Pennsylvania and “multiple other Republican congressmen” sought “presidential pardons for their roles in attempting to overturn the 2020 election”;
- New texts between Fox News host Sean Hannity and then-White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany;
- Former campaign adviser Jason Miller saying on camera that he told Trump in “pretty blunt terms that he was going to lose;”
- Trump’s lawyer, Alex Cannon, affirming there was no evidence of widespread election fraud or the election being stolen.
- Proud Boys and Oath Keepers on camera saying they went to the Capitol that day because they believed that’s what Trump wanted done, they felt he’d asked them to do it, and that after Trump’s “stand back and standby” remark in a debate, membership in the Proud Boys tripled.
Here is the June 13th hearing:
