For the past year, the House committee investigating the January 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol has conducted hundreds of interviews. It has fought in
federal court for records, and recommended criminal charges against Trump allies who have defied the panel's subpoenas.
Now, the special Housel panel is going primetime.
At 8 p.m. ET on Thursday, the House January 6 committee is holding the first of several hearings to air its findings from the investigation into the breach of the Capitol by a pro-Trump mob. A second hearing is set for 10 a.m. on Monday, June 13.
Thursday's hearing will provide a first flavor of how the House committee plans to present its work. The House committee has yet to announce a schedule for further hearings, but there are expected to be about a half dozen in June.
Looming large over the hearings is Trump, who has communicated his desire for counter programming to congressional allies. It is unclear what new information the House committee will present, but the committee has reportedly concluded it has enough evidence to make a criminal referral to the Justice Department recommending charges against the former president.
Previewing Thursday's hearing, the committee said it would feature "previously unseen material documenting January 6th," along with witness testimony. The initial witnesses include a documentarian who interviewed members of the Proud Boys — a far-right group whose members were charged Monday with seditious conspiracy — and Caroline Edwards, a respected Capitol Police officer believed to be the first officer injured during the January 6 attack.
The string of hearings will combine to provide the American public with what the House committee described as a summary of its findings about a "coordinated, multi-step effort to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election and prevent the transfer of power."
Here are the members of the committee to watch as the public hearings unfold.
Anne Heche crashed her car into a Los Angeles home on Friday, while the owner was in the backyard.
The Los Angeles Police Department said the crash occurred just before 11 a.m. when a vehicle ran off the road and collided with a home in the 1700 block of Walgrove Avenue in Mar Vista.
"The vehicle became engulfed in flames," the LAPD told Insider.
Heche was transported to a local hospital by the Los Angeles Fire Department for treatment. The LAPD said one person was injured and could not comment on the damage to the home.
A source told CNN the driver was Anne Heche.
The Los Angeles Fire Department said they rescued a "critically injured person" and that it took the department 59 firefighters and 65 minutes to put out the blaze. The LAFD said the car went at least 30 ft. into the residence, missing the woman who was home at the time.
A neighbor told NBC Los Angeles there was tons of smoke coming from the home.
"I think they used the crane to move the car to extract the driver. It was crazy," the neighbor said.
Actress Rosanna Arquette called the accident "tragic" and asked people to pray for Heche.
Heche's condition is currently unknown. Representatives for Heche did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
