Police officers testify at House hearing on Jan. 6 – 7/27 (FULL LIVE STREAM)

Washington Post published this video item, entitled “Police officers testify at House hearing on Jan. 6 – 7/27 (FULL LIVE STREAM)” – below is their description.

Four police officers are set to provide the first public testimony before the House Select Committee investigating the events of Jan. 6. (This stream contains graphic content.)

The officers — from both the D.C. police department as well as the Capitol Police — are expected to testify about their experiences of both physical and verbal abuse on Jan. 6, as they tried to protect the Capitol from a swelling horde of demonstrators determined to stop Congress’s efforts to certify the 2020 electoral college results and declare Joe Biden the next president. Police personnel provide the “moral center of gravity of the whole investigation,” Rep. Jamie B. Raskin (D-Md.) said in an interview last week.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) is expected to deliver an opening statement which is intended to present the committee as a bipartisan effort following Republican leadership’s decision not to participate in the panel. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) rejected two of Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s picks. The Post’s Libby Casey will anchor from the Washington Post newsroom and will be joined by colleagues Philip Bump, Rhonda Colvin, Karoun Demirjian, Peter Hermann James Hohmann, Tom Jackman, Hannah Jewell, Joyce Koh and Marianna Sotomayor.

  • In This Story: Electoral College

    The United States Electoral College is the group of presidential electors required by the Constitution to form every four years for the sole purpose of electing the president and vice president. Each state appoints electors equal in number to its congressional delegation. Federal office holders cannot be electors.

    Of the current 538 electors, an absolute majority of 270 or more electoral votes is required to elect the president and vice president. If no candidate achieves an absolute majority there, a contingent election is held by the United States House of Representatives to elect the president, and by the United States Senate to elect the vice president.

    The appropriateness of the Electoral College system is a matter of ongoing debate. Supporters argue that it is a fundamental component of American federalism by preserving the Constitutional role of the states in presidential elections. Candidates must appeal to a broad and diverse set of states rather than focusing only on the few U.S. cities with the highest population densities.

    Critics argue that the Electoral College system is less democratic than a direct popular vote and that the College violates the democratic principle of “one person, one vote.” Thus, a president may be elected who did not win the national popular vote, as occurred in 1824, 1876, 1888, 2000, and 2016.
