The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol meets for a hearing Thursday in Washington, D.C.

The House Jan. 6 committee meets at 1 p.m. ET in what could be the final hearing about its U.S. Capitol insurrection investigation. Over eight hearings in the summer, the Democrat-led committee laid out its case that former President Donald Trump was at the center of the 2020 election fraud conspiracy that ultimately led to the deadly riot at the Capitol.

Get caught up:

  • Trump subpoena: A source familiar with the process tells NPR's Deirdre Walsh that the Jan. 6 committee plans to vote to subpoena former President Donald Trump to testify and continue its investigation. Chairman Thompson also told reporters before the hearing that the panel is considering hearing directly from former Vice President Mike Pence as well.
  • Election lies: Trump "maliciously" repeated false claims about the election "to a wide audience over and over again. His intent was to deceive," committee member Rep. Elaine Luria said.
  • Key moments: Revisit some of the revelations from the past 8 blockbuster hearings.
