A police officer hurt by rioters looking to overturn the 2020 elections and a filmmaker who recorded some leaders of the U.S. Capitol riot will be among the first witnesses when hearings into the assault begin on Thursday, organizers said.

The Democrat-led House Select Committee will attempt to reverse Republican efforts to downplay or deny the violence on Jan. 6, 2021, with five months to go until Nov. 8 midterm elections that will determine which party controls Congress for the next two years.

The committee's first public hearing will begin on Thursday at 8 p.m. ET, a prime-time spot intended to capture the attention of as many Americans as possible, to be shown live on major networks including NBC, ABC, and CBS.

U.S. Capitol Officer Caroline Edwards, who sustained a traumatic brain injury that has so far prevented her from returning to her previous duties, and Nick Quested, a filmmaker who has captured footage of the extremist Proud Boys and documented events that morning, are due to appear.

Five further hearings are expected in the next two weeks.
