Stephen Maynard Caliendo discussed the Jan. 6 insurrection hearing being postponed and its impact

The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol is postponing its highly anticipated hearing because of Hurricane Ian. The hearing, when rescheduled, could conclude its presentations of investigative findings before a final report due later this year.

The hearing would have marked its first since a series of blockbuster presentations earlier this summer. The hearings saw the panel detail new evidence through testimony from top aides, advisers and allies to former President Donald Trump. The hearings have aimed to show Trump had a much larger role to play in efforts to overturn the 2020 election results and the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.

Since the panel shared those findings, committee members teased more hearings after their August recess to present evidence. However, only one had been set so far, and now the panel will need to reschedule it for a later date.

Stephen Maynard Caliendo interviewed with FOX 32 Chicago to explain what is to come from the committee hearing and the impact of the postponement.
