The House Select Committee established last year to investigate the January 6 Capitol riot of 2021 will finally hold a public hearing this week that has been scheduled for the primetime evening hours and will almost certainly be a grandstanding spectacle.
Such an outcome seems guaranteed after the revelation this week that the highly partisan clown show committee actually hired a former top news producer to help make the public hearing more “TV-friendly,” Townhall reported.
Committee to hold a public hearing this week
The Jan. 6 Committee is almost exclusively composed of Democrats with just two nominal Republicans who were hand-picked by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) — Reps. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Adam Kinzinger (R-IL). They were undoubtedly chosen by Pelosi due to their outspoken opposition against former President Donald Trump and his supporters.
The committee announced in a tweet last week that it would finally hold its first public hearing and that the hearing was scheduled to take place on Thursday at 8 pm ET.
According to that announcement, “The Select Committee will hold a hearing to provide the American people with a summary of our findings about the coordinated, multi-step effort to overturn the 2020 presidential election.”
The producer hired to make primetime hearings “TV-friendly”
On Monday, Fox News congressional correspondent Chad Pergram revealed that the committee had hired at taxpayer’s expense a veteran news producer to help put on the public hearing.
Pergram tweeted, “Fox has confirmed that the committee investigating last year’s riot at the Capitol has hired former ABC News President James Goldston to ‘produce’ the slate of hearings scheduled for this month. Fox is told Goldston will have a hand in all of the hearings this month.”
“But Goldston will be particularly involved in the efforts by the committee to make its prime-time hearing Thursday and another one later this month ‘TV-friendly,'” he continued.

Fox is also told that the actual witness list for the hearing will come in the next day or two.

The reporter added that the committee would likely feature testimony from witnesses but would also “intersperse various portions of taped depositions, new audio/videotape and never-before-seen footage from inside the Capitol on the day of the riot.”
The latest taxpayer-funded anti-Trump show trial
It was evident from the very start that the highly partisan and agenda-driven Jan. 6 Committee would be an absolute circus and clown show, and the fact that the committee has hired a TV news producer to help manage its public hearings only confirms that initial assessment.
This looks to be a gross waste, if not actual abuse, of taxpayer money by grandstanding and Trump-hating politicians, but is just par for the course in relation to the pair of anti-Trump show trial impeachments House Democrats have already put on.
