  • The House Select Committee investigating the January 6 attack is holding its last public meeting.

  • The panel has held nine public hearings since the beginning of June.

  • Here's how to watch previous hearings and Monday's meeting, which is expected to wrap things up.

The House Select Committee Investigating the January 6 Insurrection at the US Capitol worked to showcase its findings from a year's worth of work with a series of public hearings that began this summer.

The select committee, formed in May 2021, has nine members: seven Democrats, including Chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson, and two Republicans, Reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger.

Its members and staff have spent over a year conducting hundreds of closed-door interviews, poring over hundreds of thousands of documents, and parsing phone and email records to reconstruct how President Donald Trump and his allies sought to overturn his 2020 election loss before a mob of pro-Trump rioters breached the US Capitol in an effort to stop the final certification of the 2020 election.

The committee held nine blockbuster public hearings, including one in primetime, over the course of the last seven months.

Here's when and how to watch the hearings:

When are the next January 6 Committee hearings?

The panel's final public meeting is scheduled for Monday, December 19 at 1 p.m.

Chairman Thompson has told various congressional reporters that the closing agenda includes approving the panel's final report — which is expected to include an executive summary of the findings and eight chapters covering various facets of the attack on Congress — and announcing the slate of referrals the committee plans to pass along to investigators at the Department of Justice, the House Ethics Committee, legal bar associations, and campaign finance watchdogs.

The final report is also expected to include recommendations for a bundle of legislative changes designed to ward off future attacks on the institution.

Here are the witnesses who have testified so far.

How can I watch the first eight hearings?

In the first hearing, lawmakers laid out new information about Trump and his allies' efforts to overturn the election, displayed clips from recorded video depositions from those close to Trump and showed a harrowing video montage laying out the timeline of the January 6 attack, including never-before-seen security camera and bodycam footage. You can watch it here.

The second hearing focused on Trump's lies that the 2020 election was tainted by massive fraud and Trump's refusal to accept defeat, using testimony from former Trump officials to detail how Trump preemptively declared victory and doubled down on his election lies despite being advised otherwise. You can watch it here.

The third hearing zeroed in on the Trump-led pressure campaign targeting Pence, featuring Pence's former chief counsel Greg Jacob and retired federal judge J. Michael Luttig as witnesses. You can watch it here. 

The fourth hearing focused on Trump and his allies' efforts to pressure and intimidate state legislators and election officials to overturn his loss in the 2020 election and their ploy to assemble unofficial slates of Trump electors in states that voted for Biden. You can watch it here. 

The fifth hearing focused on Trump's attempts to meddle with the Department of Justice and install loyalists at the Department who would back up his false election claims, featuring in-person testimony from three former DOJ officials. You can watch it here. 

The sixth hearing featured explosive, bombshell testimony from former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson, a top staffer to Meadows who had close access to Trump in the days leading up to January 6. You can watch it here. 

The seventh hearing detailed the links between Trumpworld and extremist groups, including the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers. You can watch it here.

The eighth hearing revealed how the insurrection unfolded from the perspective of the White House. The hearing zeroed in on Trump's 187 minutes of inaction as rioters besieged the Capitol on January 6, featuring live testimony from two former White House aides. You can watch it here. 

The ninth hearing focused on new information culled from Secret Service emails about how Trump-aligned rioters planned to kill people and previously unseen documentary footage shot inside the Capitol while MAGA loyalists swarmed the building. The panel also presented information showing that Trump began plotting during the summer of 2020 to falsely claim victory in that fall's election. And that even though he knew full well he had lost the election, Trump fought it anyway because he was embarrassed about losing Biden.

They closed the meeting by unanimously voting to subpoena the embattled former president in order to fill in the gaps left by uncooperative witnesses. You can watch it here.

Where can I watch the next hearings?

Major television networks, including ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC/MSNBC, CNBC, and Fox Business, will air the hearings in full or in part. The hearings will also be live-streamed and available to watch in full on C-SPAN and on the select committee's YouTube channel.
