Hearings on January 6 continue today, Stepien will not appear

(NewsNation) – Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Bill Stepien abruptly withdrew Monday from appearing before the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 riots in the Capitol.

Stepien was supposed to be an important witness and will no longer be among the witnesses. He was originally subpoenaed for his public testimony.

The panel said its appearance had been canceled due to a “family emergency” and was told on Monday morning that Stepien’s wife was in labour, according to a person briefed to the matter, who spoke on condition of anonymity before the hearing.

The committee said Stepien’s attorney will appear and make a statement on the files.

The committee pushed back the hearing’s start time by 30 minutes as lawmakers and staffers scrambled to change plans.

NewsNation will stream the Jan. 6 hearing at 10:30 am ET in a player at the top of the page. According to him, only listen to Stirewalt on NewsNation.

The next round of hearings will not take place at prime time because the Debut Thursdaybut lawmakers are expected to go into more detail on certain aspects of the insurgency.

Committee members said Sunday they had uncovered enough evidence for the Justice Department to consider an unprecedented criminal indictment against former President Trump.

Rep. Liz Cheney from Wyoming, the committee’s Republican vice chairman, said lawmakers will present evidence Monday showing Trump “exerted massive efforts to disseminate false and fraudulent information” that the election was stolen — although advisers and Allies would have told him this repeatedly had lost.

As of the January 6 committee, new witnesses and evidence are expected tries to link the Capitol Riot to Trump.

NewsNations Politics Editor Chris Stirewalt uncovered “Tomorrow in America” that he will be among those who will testify during the hearing on Monday, January 6th. Stirewalt announced he was being called to testify before the committee, but could not comment on what his testimony would entail or why he was being called to testify in the first place.

Additional witnesses include Electoral Attorney Benjamin Ginsberg, former US Attorney for the Northern District of Georgia BJ Pak, and former Philadelphia City Commissioner Al Schmidt.

Pak was the chief federal attorney in Atlanta, resigning from his position on Jan. 4, 2021, the day after an audio recording was released in which Trump called him a “never-Trumper.”

Lawmakers pointed out that perhaps his most important listener as the hearings progress may be Attorney General Merrick Garland, who must decide whether his department can and should prosecute Trump. They left no doubt as to whether there was enough evidence to proceed.

“Once the evidence is gathered by the Justice Department, it must make a decision as to whether it can prove beyond a reasonable doubt the President’s guilt or anyone else’s,” said Rep. Adam Schiff of California. “But they need to be investigated when there is credible evidence, which I think is the case.”

Rep. Elaine Luria (D-Va.) told NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday that the upcoming hearings will focus on Trump’s “dereliction of duty” and his attempts to overturn the 2020 election results.

“We put together a very comprehensive tick-tock timeline of what he did,” she said.

Committee members said they would present clear evidence that “several” GOP lawmakers, including Rep. Scott Perry, R-Pa., had asked Trump for a pardon, which would protect him from prosecution. Perry on Friday denied ever doing so, calling the claim an “absolute, shameless and soulless lie”.

Monday’s hearing comes just days after the first in a Series of hearings that started last week and set out the committee’s first findingscollected over an 11 month study.

Thursday’s hearing lasted approximately 90 minutes and was watched by approximately 20 million people on the six major American radio and cable networks that aired the program.

During the prime time hearing, Americans watched footage of violent rioters infiltrated the symbol of the country’s democracy and heard testimonies from a beaten Capitol police officer and a filmmaker documenting the group breaking through Capitol security for the first time that day.

The Jan. 6 hearings were decried by the GOP as “political theatre,” and while some of the witnesses made some strong allegations, many viewers are left wondering whether there are any or not Actual charges could emerge from the proceedings.
