1. Jan. 6 committee shares siege video, live testimony in 1st prime-time hearing

In the first of multiple televised hearings, the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack showed powerful, never-before-seen footage Thursday night in video montages of the Capitol siege. Some of the new footage was from documentarian Nick Quested, who had been following the far-right Proud Boys before and during the riot. "For anyone who didn't understand how violent the event was, I saw it, I documented it, and I experienced it," Quested said. The kick-off proceedings also featured live testimony from Capitol Police Officer Caroline Edwards, who described what she witnessed that day as "carnage" and "chaos," and clips from recorded interviews with Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner, and former attorney William Barr, among others.
