All four of the requested witnesses are slated to testify during today's Senate hearing on the Jan. 6 Capitol attack, according to two sources familiar with the plans.
The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and Senate Rules committees invited the following witnesses to testify based on their critical roles in security planning for the joint session of Congress on Jan. 6:
- Metropolitan Police Acting Chief Robert Contee
- Former House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving
- Former Senate Sergeant at Arms Michael Stenger
- Former United States Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund
As CNN previously reported, a committee aide described Tuesday’s hearing as a first opportunity to get answers to key questions surrounding the events of Jan. 6, including why the response from law enforcement was delayed and why the rioters were allowed to breach the building.
