The House committee created to investigate the attack on the US Capitol is scheduled to begin its hearings in June, starting Thursday.

The committee, which consists of nine members of the House, has subpoenaed nearly 100 close allies of former US President Donald Trump, individuals and businesses that organised events surrounding the date of the insurrection.

Recently, the committee subpoenaed as many as five Republican lawmakers, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., for relevant knowledge leading up to the events of January 6 Capitol riots.

Seven Democrats and two Republicans are on the bipartisan committee. Each was appointed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., after McCarthy retracted his choices.

But the question is, who is on the Jan. 6 committee? And what experiences do they bring to the table?

Rep. Bennie Thompson: The 74-year-old Democrat from Mississippi, is the committee chairman. Thompson called Jan. 6 a “horrible day” and one that is “still almost surreal that it even occurred.”

It is reported that Thompson sued the former Us President after the Capitol riot, accusing him of inciting the deadly assault and conspiring with his lawyers and extremist groups to prevent the certification of the 2020 presidential election results.

Rep. Liz Cheney: Rep. Liz Cheney, 55, of Wyoming is the vice chair of the panel and one of the two Republicans on the select committee. Earlier, Cheney was the only Republican Pelosi appointed when she named her picks to sit on the panel.

Reports stated that the Wyoming representative and former Vice President Dick Cheney’s daughter has been a fierce critic of the Republican party since the attack of Jan. 6, not only condemning Trump for his role in the attack but also voting to impeach him shortly after.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger: The 44-year-old Republican of Illinois was a recent addition to the committee by Pelosi after McCarthy pulled his five appointees from sitting on the panel.

Like Cheney, Kinzinger has been a vocal and critical member of the GOP. He was one of the ten Republicans who voted to impeach Trump after the insurrection on Jan. 6.

Kinzinger also condemned several members of his own party and was one of the 11 House Republicans who voted to remove Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., from her committees due to her previous incendiary social media posts.  

Apart from the three, Jamie Raskin, Zoe Lofgren, Elaine Luria, Pete Aguilar, Stephanie Murphy and Adam Schiff will be on the Jan.6 committee.
