The findings of an 11-month investigation into last year’s insurrection at the US Capitol will be laid out for the public in a series of hearings beginning next Thursday, and the House panel conducting the inquiry says it will detail how former President Donald Trump and his allies attempted to overturn the 2020 election results.

“The committee will present previously unseen material documenting January 6th, receive witness testimony, preview additional hearings, and provide the American people a summary of its findings about the coordinated, multi-step effort to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election and prevent the transfer of power,” the House select committee said in an announcement.
