The Jan. 6 committee is pausing its public hearings after Thursday’s meeting as the House panel sorts through documentary footage and other new evidence that has surfaced concerning the attack on the US Capitol. 

“We have a new documentary person that we’re talking to, and we’ve got to look through all of his information,” Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson told reporters, adding that he’s seen only some of the new evidence.
