06/09/2022 Select Committee Hearing
The committee will present previously unseen material documenting January 6th, receive witness testimony, and provide the American people an initial summary of its findings about the coordinated, multi-step effort to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election and prevent the transfer of power. The committee will also preview additional hearings.
U.S. Capitol Police Officer Caroline Edwards
U.S. Capitol Police Officer Caroline Edwards was the first law enforcement officer injured by rioters storming the Capitol grounds on January 6, 2021. Even after suffering a traumatic brain injury, Officer Edwards patrolled the Capitol’s West Plaza and prevented many rioters from entering the Capitol building. A native of Atlanta, Georgia, and cum laude graduate of the University of Georgia, Officer Edwards left a career in public relations to answer the call to serve in law enforcement in 2017. Since January 6th, her injuries have prevented her from returning to her previous assignment as a member of the USCP First Responder Unit. She looks forward to returning to that duty this year after being physically cleared.
Nick Quested is an acclaimed filmmaker and documentarian who, with his crew, documented the movements around the Capitol that morning, the first moments of violence against U.S. Capitol Police, and the chaos that ensued. Mr. Quested produced Restrepo which followed a platoon in Afghanistan for a year and was nominated for an Academy award. He also directed Hell on Earth for National Geographic.
