A year and a half after a violent mob of Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol to block the transfer of presidential power, lawmakers are ready to show the country what their investigation reveals about how it all happened.

Members of the House select committee on the Jan. 6, 2021 attack promise there will be surprises in a prime-time hearing Thursday that will be carried live by most of the television networks. It will be the first of at least six public hearings on the topic over coming weeks.
