January 6 committee chair Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi speaks to reporters following the committee’s fifth hearing on June 23, 2022.

The January 6 committee just announced it will hold a hearing on Tuesday afternoon.
The committee said it will present “recently obtained evidence” and receive witness testimony.
Previously, members had said that the committee wouldn’t hold another hearing until July.

The House Select Committee investigating the January 6 attack on the US Capitol announced on Monday that it will hold a sixth public hearing on Tuesday.

The hearing, slated for 1 pm ET, will feature “recently obtained evidence” as well as testimony from witnesses, according to an advisory sent to reporters.

The announcement of a sixth hearing this month is unexpected; Congress is currently on recess for the July 4th holiday, and committee members had previously said that further hearings would not take place until July.

Here’s how to watch Tuesday’s hearing.
