The House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the US Capitol is expected to speak behind closed doors Tuesday with former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, a person familiar with the plans said.

Separately, Doug Mastriano, the Republican nominee for governor in Pennsylvania and an ally of former President Donald Trump, abruptly ended his virtual deposition by the committee Tuesday before being sworn-in over a dispute on how the questioning will be conducted. His lawyer said he will file a legal challenge in US District Court.
