Selected House committee investigating the Jan. 6 US Capitol riots to hold its next hearing next Wednesday, Speaker Bennie Thompson toldThe New York Times on Tuesday.

Mr Thompson said this will likely be the last hearing, barring new developments. The hearing comes after the August recess ended and there have been no more hearings since the House reconvened.

Before the House went on a hiatus, Vice Speaker Liz Cheney indicated that while the committee hoped to complete the hearings in July, new developments meant the committee would likely hold hearings in August.

It is striking that the committee has almost no time left to present its report. His term expires on December 31, and Republicans are expected to take over the House of Representatives in the November midterm elections.

Likewise, three members of the committee will leave Congress early next year. Ms. Cheney lost her Wyoming Grand District primaries to Harriet Hageman, largely as a result of her constant criticism of former President Donald Trump and her committee membership.

The other Republican on the committee, Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, chose not to be re-elected, as did Democratic Rep. Stephanie Murphy of Florida. Democratic Representative Elaine Luria, another committee member, also faces a tough reelection campaign in Virginia’s 2nd district.

The commission is expected to submit its final report before the end of the year, although UKTN said it will likely release the report after the election.
