Entertainment How To Watch House Hearing On The Capitol Riot – Livestream & TV
No. 2 Republican won't say if GOP will support Jan. 6 probe
WASHINGTON (AP) — The No. 2 House Republican won’t say whether members of his caucus will support — or even participate in — a proposed select committee to investigate the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol. Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise demurred Tuesday when asked if Republicans would sit on the panel, telling reporters at a news conference that “I can’t answer that question.” Asked whether any Republicans will vote for the resolution to create the committee, he said “we’ll see how the vote goes.” That vote is expected Wednesday.
More than six months after the attack on the U.S. Capitol, viewers will get to hear firsthand accounts of what happened on January 6 at the first hearing of a select House committee set up to investigate the insurrection.
Broadcast and cable networks plan to carry all or parts of the first hearing of the Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol. Or you can watch the livestream here:
Scheduled to testify are four law enforcement officers who will share their accounts: They include Capitol Police officers Harry Dunn and Aquilino Gonell, and Metropolitan Police officers Michael Fanone and Daniel Hodges.
Bill Cosby Launches Tirade Against Howard University Over Phylicia Rashad Reprimand
If anyone thought a now-free Bill Cosby was going to lay low for a bit after having his rape conviction and sentence suddenly overturned last week, think again. The much-accused actor once known as “America’s Dad” choose America’s Independence Day to prove them wrong. In a somewhat confusing scattered statement today, Cosby lashed out at Howard University’s rebuke of his former on-air spouse and the mainstream media. He also decried the bloody attempted coup at the Capitol earlier this year. It was not a good look, to put it mildly, for the 83-year old once labeled a “sexually violent predator.
It’s taken months to get a committee up and running amid opposition from Republicans. They blocked an earlier plan to set up an independent bipartisan commission to investigate Jan. 6, similar to one that was set up after 9/11. Then House Speakerannounced the formation of a select committee, with Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) as chair. After House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy put forward a list of names of Republicans who would join the committee, Pelosi rejected two of them, Jim Jordan and Rep. Jim Banks. In protest, McCarthy pulled the remaining GOP members off the body.
The committee, however, will have Republican members: Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), both of whom voted to impeach then-President Donald Trump in the aftermath of the Capitol riot, and have been critical of Republicans’ fealty to Trump since then.

'Morning Joe' to Conservatives Downplaying Capitol Riot: 'Spare Us Your Backing of the Blue' (Video)
MSNBC's "Morning Joe" urged conniservatives who downplay the deadly Capitol riot to stop saying they support law enforcement. "You can spare us, now, at this point, as you watch — if you're still defending what happened on Jan. 6, you can spare us your backing of the blue. It doesn't mean anything. If you truly believe that police are heroic — I happen to agree with that position — that video ought to make you sick to your stomach. It ought to appall you," said co-host Willie Geist after rolling newly-released footage of Capitol police officers being hit with American flags by supporters of former president Donald Trump.
