Hurricane Ian has caused the House Jan. 6 committee’s Wednesday meeting to be postponed.
At roughly the same point as the procedure was scheduled to start, the storm is forecast to make a crash landing in Florida.
In a statement released Tuesday afternoon, Chairman Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., and Vice Chair Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., announced that they had decided to postpone tomorrow’s proceedings due to Hurricane Ian, which is currently threatening parts of Florida. We are requesting prayers for everyone who is in the Houston area for Jan. 6 committee. The investigation by the Select Committee continues, and we’ll soon reveal the new date for the hearings.

After a two-month break, the committee was scheduled to meet again on Wednesday for a mid-afternoon hearing.
However, Hurricane Ian, which is as of now a Category 3 cyclone and is forecast to become stronger, is quickly moving toward land and is currently taking over the airwaves following the hearing of the Jan. 6 committee.
All that happened:
Thompson heretofore told journalists that the committee would broadcast “significant witness testimony” and “substantial footage,” but he didn’t provide any additional information about what the public can anticipate seeing or the hearing’s main focus.
From June to July, lawmakers held eight aired television hearings where they discussed what they called previous President Donald Trump’s “advanced” attempts to rig the 2020 election, which they claimed resulted in the events that happened on January 6, 2021.
The court proceedings of the Jan. 6 committee, two of which took place during prime time, were organized to draw attention to the issue more than 15 months after the riot.
The 187 minutes between Trump’s appeal at the Ellipsoid and his recorded assertion later that afternoon ordering rioters to depart the Capitol was the main topic of discussion at the committee’s most recent hearing on July 21. The committee claimed that Trump resisted being persuaded to take action as he witnessed the crime unfold on television utilizing evidence from retired White House officials.
Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., claimed that in the 187 minutes that passed between departing the Ellipse and ordering the mob to disperse, President Trump “did not fail to act.” He “selected not to act.”
Since then, the advisory board has asked several people with connections to Trump and election fraud for information, which include retired Speaker Of the House Newt Gingrich.
The lady of Supreme Court Chief Justice Clarence Thomas, Ginni Thomas, has voluntarily agreed to speak with the committee, according to her attorney, who made the announcement last week in the Jan. 6 committee.
Before the committee wraps up its investigation, there is also the lurking question of whether it will summon Vice President Mike Pence to testify.
Cheney expressed her hope that Pence would speak with lawmakers to ABC News Chairman Washington Correspondent Jonathan Karl. When asked if he would testify, the ex-vice president said he would, but he added that there might be legal restrictions on any potential appearance.
