Washington, D.C. The House Jan. 6 committee's chairman, Rep. Bennie Thompson, tested positive for COVID-19, but the hearing will still take place in front of a live audience on Thursday, a panel spokesperson said.


On July 21, the hearing is scheduled to start at 8 p.m. ET. Prior to the event, the PBS NewsHour, hosted by Digital Anchor Nicole Ellis, will look back on the previous seven hearings and ahead to the evening's primetime session. Starting at 7 p.m. ET, you can watch both events in the player above.


The virus was detected in Thompson, D-Miss., on Monday, and he reported having mild symptoms on Tuesday. The committee's eighth hearing this summer will go ahead, according to Tim Mulvey, a spokesman for the committee on January 6. Thompson, 74, stated that he will isolate for the upcoming few days. He didn't specify if Thompson would take part virtually.


The nine-member panel is preparing for the hearing, which is anticipated to center on what President Donald Trump was doing in the White House on January 6, 2021 for a number of hours as his supporters were breaking into the Capitol and interfering with the certification of Joe Biden's victory. The news of Thompson's diagnosis comes as the panel is getting ready for the hearing. According to a person familiar with the hearing's schedule, two White House assistants who quit right after are scheduled to testify.


Sarah Matthews, a former deputy press secretary, and Matthew Pottinger, a former deputy national security adviser, are also scheduled to testify. Pottinger and Matthews will be witnesses at the hearing on Thursday, according to PBS NewsHour.

Aides and others were pleading with the president to order the rioters to leave the Capitol during previous hearings, which described the mayhem in the White House. However, Trump didn't intervene until after more than three hours had passed, and it's still unclear exactly what he was thinking and saying as the violence took place.


According to lawmakers on the nine-member panel, the hearing will present the strongest proof yet of Trump's "dereliction of duty" on that particular day, with witnesses describing how he failed to control the enraged crowd.


Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., who will assist in directing Thursday's session, declared on Sunday that "we have filled in the blanks." "This is going to really open people's eyes,"


There will be updates to this story as it develops.


The panel's year-long inquiry has produced a number of revelations on the former president's activities while a rioting mob broke into the Capitol building. The people closest to Trump, including his congressional allies, Fox News commentators, and even his own children, sought to convince him to call off the riots or issue a statement urging the rioters to disperse, according to testimony and documents.


The hearing on Thursday will be the first to be broadcast in prime time since its premiere on June 9 in front of an estimated 20 million viewers.
