The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot is planning at least one additional hearing more than the six already scheduled for this summer.

The panel, which scaled the number of planned public hearings down from eight to six earlier in June, is now considering scheduling additional hearings, sources familiar told Time.

JAN. 6 COMMITTEE CUTS BACK NUMBER OF PLANNED PUBLIC HEARINGS FOR JUNE

Members of the committee had not ruled out the possibility of additional hearings prior, leaving the final schedule in flux.

“We continue to receive information via our tip line,” a Jan. 6 committee aide told the outlet. “This is an ongoing investigation. We continue to take on new evidence every day.”

The next televised hearings, which will be aired on major broadcast and cable networks, are scheduled for 1 p.m. EST on Tuesday and Thursday. The panel is expected to present evidence centered on President Donald Trump’s alleged involvement in a scheme to use fake electors to overturn the 2020 results.

“Yes, we’ll show evidence of the president’s involvement in this scheme. We’ll also again show evidence about what his own lawyers came to think about this scheme,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) told CNN’s Dana Bash on Sunday.
