The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol on Monday abruptly scheduled a hearing for Tuesday afternoon to hear what the panel called “recently obtained evidence” and take witness testimony.
The hearing is scheduled for 1 p.m., according to a news release issued by the committee, in which it provided no other details about the surprise session.
The panel has held a series of hearings this month laying out the findings of its nearly yearlong investigation, but it had not been scheduled to have any additional sessions this week.
The committee is planning at least two more hearings for July, according to its chairman, Representative Bennie G. Thompson, Democrat of Mississippi. Those hearings are expected to detail how a mob of violent extremists attacked the Capitol and how President Donald J. Trump did nothing to call off the violence for more than three hours.
Previous hearings have focused on the pressure campaigns Mr. Trump launched against the Justice Department, state officials and his own vice president, as he sought to cling to power.
