How the House January 6th Panel Has Redefined the Congressional Hearing

From a New York Times story by Michael S. Schmidt, Luke Broadwater, and Maggie Haberman headlined “How the House Jan. 6 Panel Has Redefined the Congressional Hearing”:

The typical congressional hearing features a pileup of long-winded statements — what some might consider bloviating. There are harsh partisan exchanges that can obscure the substance at hand. Visual presentations tend to involve an easel. The television audience is largely on C-SPAN.

But the congressional hearing has been utterly, if perhaps temporarily, redefined over the past month by the House select committee investigating President Donald J. Trump’s efforts to hold on to power.
