The Jan. 6 committee has delayed Wednesday’s hearing, the panel announced Tuesday.
The next hearing is now scheduled for Thursday. No reason for the delay was provided, only that additional details would follow.
“The schedule has always been fluid,” Rep. Pete Aguilar (D-CA) told reporters on Tuesday, adding that additional hearings next week are expected. “We’ll continue sharing the results that we’ve learned, and most importantly, ensuring that this never happens again.”
With members of the select committee on different pages over whether it should issue criminal referrals, Aguilar said that no decisions have been made on the direction the panel will take.
“When the hearings are complete, we will have those conversations,” he said.
The committee has held two public hearings, one in prime time last week and the second on Monday morning.
In recorded video testimony on Monday, former Attorney General Bill Barr said former President Donald Trump embraced baseless conspiracy theories about Dominion Voting Systems machines and that he told the president his claims were unfounded. Barr went on to say that Trump’s claims of election fraud in Philadelphia were “absolutely rubbish.”
Claims of election fraud were used in fundraising emails sent to supporters in the weeks following the 2020 election, according to evidence uncovered by the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack at the Capitol. The campaign raised $250 million from its efforts, with $100 million flooding in during the week directly following the election.
