Evidence gathered in the events surrounding the storming of the US Capitol last Jan. 6 will receive its first public presentation today, with the House Select Committee holding an initial televised hearing this evening (8 pm ET).

In the culmination of a nearly yearlong probe, roughly 1,000 witnesses provided testimony and more than 100,000 pages of documents were examined. The Democrat-led panel—Reps. Liz Cheney (WY-At large) and Adam Kinzinger (IL-16) are the only GOP members—has implied new evidence may be unveiled during the hearings.

Five subsequent hearings are expected to provide findings beyond what unfolded during the day itself. Areas include law enforcement and intelligence failures, premeditated efforts by extremist groups, and the degree of involvement of former President Donald Trump and his allies. Critics have framed the panel as politically motivated. 

The fallout from the day has led to one of the largest criminal cases in Justice Department history. More than 860 people have been arrested, with charges ranging from entering a restricted building to seditious conspiracy. The select committee itself has no criminal prosecution authority.
