The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection may continue to hold hearings beyond next week as more Republicans have come forward and are expected to continue coming forward, according to people familiar with the investigation.
The panel has announced a hearing for Tuesday and may hold one Thursday.
Hearings could continue into August and beyond as investigators accumulate more evidence and witness testimony, according to the individuals. They spoke on the condition of anonymity to freely describe private deliberations.
On Friday, former White House counsel Pat Cipollone appeared for a closed-door, transcribed interview with investigators to discuss his role in trying to prevent former president Donald Trump from trying to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Cipollone could have answers to crucial questions that could corroborate previous testimony or provide new evidence about what he may have witnessed in the White House in the lead-up to Jan. 6 and on the day of the attack.
No decision has been made on whether the committee will ultimately ask Cipollone to appear in person during a public hearing, according to a person familiar with the matter.
