Tuesday's Jan. 6 hearing, the committee's first following a brief hiatus, will focus on the role extremist groups played in the Capitol attack, as well as their connection to former President Donald Trump, panel members said over the weekend.

"We are going to be connecting the dots during these hearings between these groups and those who were trying — in government circles — to overturn the election," Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) told CNN's Jake Tapper, referring to the Tuesday hearing and another that hasn't been scheduled. "So, we do think that this story is unfolding in a way that is very serious and quite credible."
