With the January 6th hearings underway something has started to nag at me. What’s the real point of these hearings?

What will be gained from conducting hearings about a subject we already know about?

As you all know, January 6th 2021 is the day Pro-Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol following a rally held by President Donald Trump.

Ok, we know it happened, we know numerous arrests have been made in connection with the event, why hold more hearings?

According to NPR

The majority-Democrat committee, charged with investigating the insurrection that pro-Trump extremists hoped would help overturn the 2020 election, has interviewed more than 1,000 witnesses, including members of former President Donald Trump’s family and administration, as well as law enforcement officials and aides who were under siege for hours on Jan. 6, 2021.

The witnesses have been interviewed, the people involved have been arrested. So, why hold these hearings.

The house select committee says they are looking to answer 4 questions by conducting these hearings

Those questions are:

  • What were Trump, his friends, staff and family members doing?
  • What is the “fake electors” scheme?
  • Where did the money come from and where did it go?
  • Who were the armed and violent groups storming into the Capitol?

If they don’t already know the answer to these questions after conducting thousands of interviews? What have they been doing?

Of course they know the answer to these questions. This is all an elaborate show without a valid reason.

Regardless of what, if anything is learned from these hearings, the committee cannot bring any criminal charges and can only make a criminal referral to the Justice Department.

So, I ask you again, what is the point?
