What Can We Expect From the January 6th Committee’s Investigation & Public Hearings?
During the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol Building on January 6, 2021, a mob of Americans stormed a joint session of Congress in an attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election . Over a year later, the bipartisan Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the U.S. Capitol, which was formed by the House of Representatives, is still in the midst of their investigation.
The committee’s aim? To understand just how much planning went into the attempt to overturn the results of 2020’s free and fair election. Moreover, the committee wants to determine the series of events and who was involved so that they can recommend criminal charges against culpable individuals to the U.S. Department of Justice.
On June 9, the public hearing phase of the investigation will begin. With this in mind, we’re taking a look at everything you need to know about the so-called January 6th Committee, the ongoing investigation and what we can expect in the coming days and months.
What Happened on January 6th?
As has been reported, the mob that attacked the United States Capitol was motivated by several factors, but, primarily, many of the Americans who participated in the insurrection were upset about what they believed to be a “stolen election” and stormed the Capitol in an attempt to stop the certification of the results of the 2020 presidential election. Although likely motivated, at least in part, by the election results, other insurrectionists had reportedly violent intentions, hoping to overthrow the government or potentially kill elected officials .
The insurrection occurred in the wake of a “Save America” rally , which was organized by conservative groups that believed the former president, Donald Trump, was the winner of the 2020 election. With Rudy Guliani calling for “a trial by combat” and Trump’s son, Donald Jr., saying of Republican lawmakers, “If you’re gonna be the zero and not the hero, we’re coming for you ,” many believe that high-profile members of the president’s team encouraged the ensuing violence .
Trump spoke at the rally too , declaring he would “never concede” and that Joe Biden would be an “illegitimate president”. Moreover, the former president called upon his then-vice president, Mike Pence, to overturn the results of the election, something outside the VP’s scope of power. The mob marched on the Capitol before Trump’s speech ended. As a result, five people died, and lawmakers, including the vice president, were rushed to safety.
Broadcast on live television, the events of January 6, 2021 were disturbing, to say the least. Several months later, in July of 2021, the first of the January 6th hearings began. It became increasingly clear that elected officials in positions of power were involved with the plan to overturn the results of the election. Even so, the bipartisan committee needs to make its case to the American people in order to hold those who were responsible for the insurrection accountable.
The Formation of the January 6th Committee
When it was formed, the committee itself wasn’t free from contention either. With the exceptions of Representative Adam Kinzinger (IL) and Representative Liz Cheney (WY) — and the 16 Republican lawmakers who abstained from voting — all Republicans voted against the formation of the committee . However, the vote to form the investigative committee passed 220–190. Composed of seven Democrats and two Republicans, the committee conducted hearings, starting with testimony from Capitol police who were attacked by insurrectionists.
As the hearings have proceeded over the last few months, it’s become evident that over 1,000 individuals were in some way connected to the uprising. In order to hold responsible parties accountable, the committee has called many high-profile politicians, including folks in Trump’s inner circle, to testify. While some of these people have been cooperative, others have refused to testify, creating a somewhat mixed bag of results.
Here’s Why the Investigation Has Faced Delays
Roger Stone, an advisor to the former president, and Micheal Flynn, Trump’s former security advisor, are just two of the individuals who have requested 5th Amendment protections for fear of implicating themselves in a crime by testifying. Others, such as Mark Meadows, Trump’s former chief of staff, and former Trump advisor Stephen Bannon, have chosen not to comply with the committee’s request for an interview, putting themselves in contempt of Congress.
But it’s not just individuals refusing to testify that has slowed the committee’s investigation, it has also been stymied by multiple lawsuits — lawsuits that are aiming to stop the release of records. While the former president has issued some of these lawsuits, others within his orbit, including John Eastman, have sought to stop the release of thousands of documents, too.
However, there are other costs associated with these delays, too. For example, Trump has started getting fined $10,000 a day for his refusal to submit documents. And, for the first time in U.S. history, sitting members of Congress — five in total, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) — have been asked to testify to a congressional committee. These members had been offered opportunities to come in voluntarily, but refused.
But why submit lawsuits or create other delays? Some believe that those being asked to testify want to prolong the committee’s investigation until the 2022 midterm elections . Given that many of the individuals being called upon to testify about their involvement are Republicans, it’s been pointed out that a change in which party is controlling Congress could impact the outcome of the investigation — or the existence of the committee in general.
Moreover, while the main goal of the insurrection seemed to be overturning the results of the 2020 presidential election, the committee has also uncovered conspiracies by far-right extremist groups , like the Oath Keepers and the Proud Boys, to target Democratic lawmakers. The leaders of these groups, Stewart Rhodes and Enrico Tarrio, will face trial later this year.
How Will the Public Hearings Work?
Thus far, most of the investigative work has been taking place during closed-door interviews with those that the committee has called upon to testify. Once the committee has compiled all of this preliminary information, they’ll move into the public phase of the hearings. Set to start on June 9, 2022, the public hearings are the committee’s chance to make a case to the American people. So, what can we expect to see?
“We’ll tell the story about what happened,” Representative Bennie Thompson (D-MS), the committee’s chairman, said (via NY1 ). “We will use a combination of witnesses, exhibits, things that we have through the tens of thousands of exhibits we’ve interviewed and looked at, as well as the, you know, hundreds of witnesses we’ve deposed or just talked to in general.” As Thompson indicates, while witnesses can be called upon to testify in person, we’ll likely see video-taped testimony from previously interviewed individuals, including Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.
“We build investigations by laying a foundation.” – Merrick Garland
The main aim, of course, is to put together the series of events that took place on January 6 from the time the insurrection began until, hours later, Donald Trump told his supporters to disperse. With thousands of documents, testimony and phone and video evidence, the committee will seek to decipher whether the plan to overturn the election passes into coordinated conspiracy territory.
“It’s definitely clear that what President Trump was doing,” Representative Cheney told CNN . “What a number of people around him were doing. That they knew it was unlawful. They did it anyway.” Even though the committee has what they believe to be enough evidence to refer Trump for criminal charges, how the public hearings will play out remains to be seen.
It’s also important to note that the committee can’t actually press charges. Instead, they can recommend whether or not Attorney General Merrick Garland should pursue criminal charges against certain individuals. “We build investigations by laying a foundation,” Garland said in January 2022 , indicating that the Justice Department will go after more straightforward cases first — and then pursue more complicated ones — as a means of holding as many people accountable for their actions as possible.
From the potential involvement of a sitting Supreme Court Justice’s spouse to the unprecedented events of the insurrection itself, January 6, 2021 will not be forgotten. In fact, the results of the committee’s investigation, much like the immediate response to the insurrection, will shape the future of our democracy.

Good morning to everyone who is present over here on the prosperous occasion of republic day. Republic day is celebrated every year on the 26th of January, this year India will celebrate its 72nd Republic day.
Republic day is celebrated to remember the historic moment when our nation became an independent republic country. As we all know that India got its independence on 15th August 1947 and the country didn’t have its own constitution, instead India was governed by the laws implemented by the British. However after many deliberations and amendments, a committee headed by Dr. B.R Ambedkar submitted a draft of the Indian constitution, which was adopted on 26th November 1949 and officially came into effect on 26 January 1950.
On the same day, Dr Rajendra Prasad also began his term as the first President of India. And the Constituent Assembly became the Parliament of India under provisions of the new Constitution.
Ever since Independence, the main celebration of Republic day has been held at the national capital, New Delhi at the Rajpath in the presence of the President, Prime minister, and other high-ranking officials of India.
As a tribute to India, on republic day ceremonial parades take place at the Rajpath. The celebration begins from the gates of Rashtrapati Bhavan followed by Raisina hill on the Rajpath past the Indian gate is the main attraction on Republic day. After the ceremonial parade, there is a presence of various dignitaries like the President, Prime minister, and other higher government officials at the Rajpath.
Every year as a part of celebrations, India has been hosting guests of honour, that could be the head of the state or government of other countries for republic day celebration at the capital. This has been the case since 1950, for example on 26 January 2015 the former president of the united states of America Barack Obama was the guest of honour on republic day. Sadly due to the covid outbreak, there won’t be any guest of honour for the 72nd republic day celebration.
The flag hoisting ceremony at the Rajpath in the national capital takes place mostly at 8.am which is followed by a Republic day speech by the President and a republic day parade.
Republic day march is considered to be an eye-catching element of the festival and it showcases Indian cultural and social heritage. It also showcases the Indian Defence Capability. Nine to twelve different regiments of the Indian Army, Navy, and Air Force, accompanied by their bands, march in all their official decorations. The President of India, who is the Commander-in-Chief of the Indian Armed Forces, takes the salute.
On this prestigious occasion the heroes of our country, the soldiers are not forgotten. Prestigious awards will be given away to the martyrs and the heroes who have dedicated their lives to protect the country at any cost.
Republic day is celebrated in every school, college, and office with great enthusiasm and energy. In schools, various competitions are held which include dancing, singing, and giving a republic day speech.
But beyond it all, the constitution declares that India is a sovereign, socialist, secular, and democratic republic. It assures its citizens’ justice, equality, liberty, and fraternity. It also gives us our rights and duties as citizens. On this Republic Day, I hope that no matter who we are, rich or poor, a powerful politician or a regular citizen, we continue to respect these basic principles and values given to us by our amazing constitution. So that, as we move forward and continue to build this nation, we do not leave behind the foundation on which our country is built.
I wanna end this speech by saying that India is a democratic country. The citizens living in a democratic country enjoy the privilege to elect their leader to lead the country.
Although we have seen a lot of economic improvements and success as a country, we still have many hurdles in our paths, such as poverty, unemployment, pollution, and the last two years - COVID. It is our duty as citizens to face these challenges and come out stronger on the other side.
So one thing we all can do is to promise each other that we will become a better version of ourselves so that we could contribute to solving all these problems and making our nation a better place. Thank you, Jai Hind.

On 29 August 1947, a resolution was moved to appoint a drafting committee (which had members elected by the elected members of the provincial assemblies) to draft a permanent constitution. Dr BR Ambedkar was appointed chairman of the committee, which had 308 members.
The Assembly met for 166 days, 11 months and 18 days, spread over a period of two years, before the Constitution was officialised. These sessions were open to the public. After many deliberations and modifications, the Assembly signed two hand-written copies, one each in Hindi and English, of the document on 24 January 1950.
Two days later, on 26 January 1950, it came into effect as the constitution of India. On the same day, Dr Rajendra Prasad also became the first President of the Indian Union, as his term in office began that day. Also, the Constituent Assembly became the Parliament of India under the transitional provisions of the new Constitution.
So, while India's Independence Day celebrates its freedom from British Rule on 15 August 1947, it celebrates Republic Day on 26 January, as the constitution came into force on this day.
5. What is the constitution of India?
The Constitution of India is the supreme law of India. The document lays down the framework demarcating the fundamental political code, structure, procedures, powers, and duties of government institutions.
It is the longest written constitution of any country (after the Constitution of Alabama) at 145,000 words. At the time of its enactment, it had 395 articles in 22 parts and 8 schedules. It has a preamble, and 470 articles in 25 parts. It has been amended 104 times since its inception, with the most recent one coming into effect on 25 January 2020.
It also sets the fundamental rights, directive principles, and duties of citizens. The six fundamental rights recognised by the Indian constitution are the right to equality, the right to freedom, the right against exploitation, the right to freedom of religion, the right to culture and education, and the right to constitutional remedies.
The fundamental duties were amended from 6 to 11 in 2002. Here are the six duties mentioned in the original constitution:
To abide by the Constitution and respect its ideals and institutions, the National Flag and the National Anthem.
To cherish and follow the noble ideals which inspired our national struggle for freedom.
To uphold and protect the sovereignty, unity and integrity of India.
To defend the country and render national service when called upon to do so.
To promote harmony and the spirit of common brotherhood amongst all the people of India transcending religious, linguistic and regional or sectional diversities, and to renounce practises derogatory to the dignity of women.
To value and preserve the rich heritage of our composite culture.
The constitution imparts constitutional supremacy and the Parliament cannot override it. The constitution declares India a sovereign, socialist, secular, and democratic republic, assures its citizens’ justice, equality and liberty, and fraternity.

Republic Day Short Speech Sample
Greetings to everyone in attendance on this auspicious day. We are all gathered here to commemorate our nation's 72nd Republic Day today. It is my duty and honor to speak on republic day. Every year on January 26, India celebrates Republic Day, which is special in Indian history. Every year, we celebrate the national event with great joy, happiness, and pride in order to make it memorable.
As we all know, the Indian constitution took effect on January 26, 1950, and ever since, the Indian people have celebrated that day as our nation's Republic Day. Although India gained independence on August 15, 1947, there was no national constitution at the time. But after much deliberation and thought, a committee led by Dr BR Ambedkar presented a draught of the Indian constitution, which was adopted on November 26, 1949, and took effect on January 26, 1950.
I just want to share a few interesting facts about the Indian constitution quickly. Do you know that the Indian Constitution, which has 444 articles divided into 22 parts, 12 schedules, 118 amendments, and 146,385 words in its English-language version, is the longest written constitution of any sovereign state in the world? The Assembly received a draught constitution from the committee in November 1947, but it took more than two months to receive the finishing touches amid discussions and amendments. The process was finally finished on November 26, 1949, when the Constitution was approved by the Constituent Assembly. Prem Behari Narain Raizda was the calligrapher who created the work in the book. It was published by Dehra Dun, photolithographed at the Survey of India Offices, and illuminated by Nandalal Bose and other artists. It is still kept in helium-filled cases in the parliament building's library. Additionally, the Indian Constitution declares nine fundamental rights to be everyone's fundamental human rights.
Respected Principal, Teachers, and all my dear friends.
I'm here in front of you right now to speak on Republic Day. I'd like to wish everyone in attendance a happy republic day before continuing. When my class teacher informed me a few days ago that you have been chosen to give a speech on January 26th, I was absolutely astonished. I have never given a speech before in my school career, so I am both excited and a little nervous.
As you are all aware, we are gathered here today to celebrate Republic Day, also known as "Gantantra Divas," and as you are also aware, our complete constitution was ratified on this day in 1950. However, Dr. Bhim Rao Ambedkar, who is well-known as the father of the Indian Constitution and one of the most influential figures in modern India at the time, presided over its adoption on November 26, 1949.
It should go without saying that our country's transformation into a republic nation was made possible by the efforts of all of our leaders at the time. The happiness of celebrating this day is completely incomprehensible. I feel incredibly proud to talk about our leaders, whose unwavering efforts laid the groundwork for our Republic Country. the individuals who fought against all odds to enact our nation's own constitution. The celebration of today serves as a reminder that we appreciate their work and will never forget it. On this special day, I also want to honor the courageous soldiers who have over the years defended our Republic Country against various threats.
As we start the celebration of this day, our hearts are overflowing with patriotism and pure love for our country. I just hope that in the years to come, this love for our country will only grow. We all continue to make contributions to our country's improvement and work together to address all of its issues. I just want to say that I am incredibly proud to be a citizen of our nation to wrap up my speech. I hope that everyone in our country continues to abide by the rules set forth in our constitution and preserves the integrity of this republican nation. Thank you!
Republic Day Long Speech Sample
Good Morning, on the auspicious occasion of Indian Republic Day, we have gathered here. India is commemorating its 74th Republic Day this year. I feel a great sense of pride and gratitude for everything our country has accomplished as we come together to celebrate the Republic Day of our country. On this day, we honour the struggles and sacrifices made by the people who fought for our country's independence and sovereignty.
The Indian Constitution, which took effect on this day in 1950, is evidence of the democratic, justice, libertarian, and egalitarian principles that have governed our country since its inception. It provides a framework for the government's transparent and accountable operation and ensures that certain fundamental rights are guaranteed to all of its citizens.
India has been hosting special guests every year as part of celebrations, including the head of state or the governments of other nations for the republic day celebration in the nation's capital. Since 1950, this has been a tradition for the celebration. For instance, on January 26, 2015, former US President Barack Obama attended Republic Day as a special guest. And for the 74th Republic Day celebration, Egypt's President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi will be the special guest.
The President delivers a speech on Republic Day at 8 a.m., and then the flag-hoisting ceremony at the Rajpath in the nation's capital is followed by a parade. The Republic Day March is regarded as a striking feature of the celebration and it highlights Indian cultural and social heritage. Additionally, it displays India's defence capabilities. The Indian Army, Navy, and Air Force's nine to twelve different regiments march while wearing all of their official regalia. The salute is accepted by the Commander-in-Chief of the Indian Armed Forces, the President of India.
The heroes of our nation, the soldiers, are remembered on this prestigious occasion. Different Gallantry awards and recognitions are presented to the Martyrs and heroes who dedicated their lives to protecting the motherland.
Happy Sunshine to all the dignitaries, chief guests,s and my dear fellow mates! Every year on January 26, India celebrates Republic Day with great fervor and pride. It marks the anniversary of the adoption of our constitution. We became a sovereign, secular, socialist, and democratic republic on January 26, 1950, nearly three years after gaining our independence.
On August 15, 1947, we declared our independence from British rule, but our nation was still without a written constitution. In addition, India lacked the specialists and political influence necessary to ensure the efficient operation of state affairs. Up until that point, the 1935 Government of India Act, which was more inclined toward colonial rule, had essentially been modified in order to govern. As a result, it was imperative to create a comprehensive constitution that would represent everything India stands for.
Additionally, this day also saw the start of the Indian Parliament's first session. Dr. Rajendra Prasad, India's first President, also took the oath of office on January 26. Because it signifies the end of British rule and the establishment of India as a Republic State, this day is crucial.
Every year on January 26, Indians celebrate with great fervor. Irrespective of sex, caste, religion, and other things whole nation comes together to celebrate this joyous day. It exemplifies how diverse our nation is in real life. India's capital city, New Delhi, observes the holiday with a Republic Day Parade that displays both the military might and cultural diversity of our nation.
These parades are held in numerous cities, and many schools participate in them. It is enjoyable to see the youngsters and experts work so hard. One can be proud of their country when one graces the parade. On this day, we hoist the national flag. The national anthem is played by the military band in New Delhi following a 21-gun salute after the President of India hoists the flag. It is a day to honor the spirit of freedom and support India's future ascent to greater heights.
