At 1:00 p.m., the committee will hold its next hearing. The first time since July will be on October 13th.

The committee members haven't said if the hearing will be the final one.

The final report on the investigation will be released by the end of the year, as the committee must be dissolved by December 31st.

According to the Associated Press, the committee is obligated to shut down within 30 days of the report being issued, so they will want to maximize their time.

According to the chair of the committee, the goal is to have some information pushed out before the election.

The New York Times is reporting that the committee is still looking for witness testimony, as well as issuing a subpoena to the speaker of the Wisconsin Assembly.

What to expect from the next meeting of the committee. According to NBC News, the hearing is likely to include information on former Trump adviser Roger Stone's activities leading up to January 6, and Thompson said the hearing "potentially" may include details around text messages sent between Secret Service agents on January 6. The testimony from witnesses that have been interviewed since the committee's last hearing could include former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

What To Watch For

The January 6 attack and the attempts to overturn the 2020 election are being investigated by the Justice Department. Dozens of subpoenas have been issued in the last few months, as well as Trump going to court in an effort to block some testimony from former White House officials. The House committee doesn't have the power to bring charges or litigation against anyone itself if it discovers evidence of a crime, even though it can refer information to the DOJ

Key Background

After a year of gathering information and interviewing witnesses, the House January 6 Committee began its public hearings in June of this year. The public hearings thus far have not shied away from suggesting wrongdoing from Trump and his allies, with Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) arguing that the ex-president "summoned the mob, assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack." The committee hearings have revealed that Trump wanted to allow armed protesters to enter the January 6 rally, that he lunged at a Secret Service agent who refused to take him to the Capitol building, and that he asked the Justice Department to seize voting machines.

The final stage of the committee is being moved.

The panel sprints to the end of the year.
