WATCH: Rep. Bennie Thompson’s full opening statement on Day 6 | Jan. 6 hearings

Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., said in a public hearing on Tuesday that the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack had received new information about what was going on in the White House on the day of the insurrection.

“Thanks to the courage of several individuals, the truth won’t be buried, the American people won’t be left in the dark,” Thompson said in his opening statement on June 28.

The hearing was announced unexpectedly a week after the Jan. 6 committee said they were taking a break until the month of July. In the year since its creation, the committee has conducted more than 1,000 interviews, seeking critical information and documents from people witness to, or involved in, the violence that day.
