Public hearings are coming soon to a television screen near you. It was always going to happen. The January sixth committee has been hard at work, cutting its way through the bullshit of the Trump cronies and various sycophants.
The committee has already interviewed hundreds of people. And as 2022 comes sailing toward us, a boatload of people should be very worried about now. The committee has said they anticipate “weeks” of hearings. And said hearings shall all be televised.
Here is what Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney had to say about it all: “We anticipate that next year we will be conducting multiple weeks of public hearings, setting out for the American people in vivid color exactly what happened every minute of the day on Jan. 6 at the Capitol and at the White House, and what led to that violent attack.”
In vivid color? This will be fascinating, but it should also scare the heck out of the insurrectionists themselves. The world will now have a chance to watch and observe and decide for themselves who the traitors are.
The investigation is entering into a new arena — the public arena. Who will testify? Will Trump be subpoenaed? That seems almost guaranteed. This is deeply encouraging news, and it is good to see the committee making significant progress and showing the world that some people at least still take the rule of law seriously.
