House January 6 Committee Moves Hearing Over Hurricane

The House January 6 committee investigating the 2021 attack on the US Capitol postponed its hearing scheduled for Wednesday in light of Hurricane Ian heading toward Florida, CNN reports.

The CNN report revealed that the House January 6 committee panel had originally scheduled a hearing for Wednesday to reveal new information it has uncovered since its last hearing on July 21, but the committee’s chairman, Democratic Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi, and vice chairwoman, Republican Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, made the announcement Tuesday afternoon.

“In light of Hurricane Ian bearing down on parts of Florida, we have decided to postpone tomorrow’s proceedings,” Thompson and Cheney said in a joint statement.

“We’re praying for the safety of all those in the storm’s path. The Select Committee’s investigation goes forward and we will soon announce a date for the postponed proceedings.”

One of the committee’s nine members, Democratic Rep.
Stephanie Murphy represents a district that includes parts of Orlando. CNN reported earlier that Murphy may not have been able to attend the Wednesday hearing.
