The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack has postponed Wednesday’s hearing.
The committee announced Tuesday that it was dealing with technical issues and that the hearing would be rescheduled.
Jeffrey Rosen, who was acting attorney general on Jan. 6, 2021, was set to testify before the committee in Wednesday’s hearing, as was former acting Deputy Attorney General Richard Donoghue and Steve Engel, former assistant attorney general for the Office of Legal Counsel.
While there was no official reason given for the postponement, Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-California, a member of the committee said the delay was “no big deal.”
The postponement, she said was just a pause to give “our very small video staff” time to prepare video exhibits for the hearing.
“We’re trying to give them a little room,” Lofgren said.
The next hearing is scheduled for Thursday at 1 p.m. ET.
That hearing will focus on former President Donald Trump’s efforts to pressure former Vice President Mike Pence “to refuse to count certain electoral votes on Jan. 6,” according to Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyoming.
Cheney said the committee would present testimony from Pence’s former general counsel, Greg Jacob.
The committee also announced the dates and times for two more hearings: June 21 and June 23, both at 1 p.m. ET.
