How to view the Jan. 6th committee hearing

Monday morning will see the second public hearing by the House committee that is investigating the Jan. 6 rebellion.

This is a follow-up hearing to Thursday's inaugural hearing of the committee.

The hearing will begin at 10 a.m. ET.

This timing is different from the original hearing which was held in prime time at 8 p.m. ET attracted around 20 million viewers.

Monday's hearing will stream live on NBC News NOW and MSNBC.com. NBCNews.com will feature a live blog that provides news and analysis.

MSNBC will begin special coverage at 6 a.m. ET will also have a live blog.

Chris Stirewalt will testify before the committee. He is a former Fox News political editor who was a harsh critic of Fox News' coverage of the 2020 election, and ex-President Donald Trump's election lies.

Fox News didn't broadcast the first hearing of the committee on Thursday. Stirewalt is now employed by NewsNation.

William Stepien (a former Trump campaign manager); Benjamin Ginsberg (a longtime GOP election lawyer; former U.S. Attorney BJay Pak, and Al Schmidt, who was a Philadelphia city commissioner, are also expected to testify.

The nine-member, largely Democratic committee is headed by Chairman Bennie Thompson (Mississippi) and Vice Chair Liz Cheney (R-Wyo).

Other Democrats include Reps. Zoe Lofgren and Adam Schiff of California, Elaine Luria and Stephanie Murphy of Florida, and Jamie Raskin from Maryland.

Adam Kinzinger, an Illinois Republican and outspoken Trump critic is the other GOP member on the panel.

Cheney and Kinzinger were two of a few House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump last January after the insurrection. The GOP leadership has denounced the Jan. 6 panel and disapproved of their membership.

Thompson, who is the chairman of the committee, said Monday's hearing will "examine lies" that led to people storming the Capitol "to stop the transfer or power."

Cheney said that the hearing will probe deeper into Trump's efforts to convince large portions of the population that "fraud stole the election from him". He had learned from his advisors that he had lost the election to Joe Biden.

Yes. The next hearing will be held Wednesday, at 10 a.m. ET.
