The third hearing was scheduled for Wednesday morning and was meant to focus on alleged pressures by former President Donald Trump on Justice Department officials to convince state election officials to reevaluate the results of the 2020 presidential election.
According to NBC News:
The committee did not say why it was postponing Wednesday’s hearing.
The witnesses who were expected to testify at the hearing included former acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen, former acting Deputy Attorney General Richard Donoghue and Steve Engel, former assistant attorney general for the Office of Legal Counsel.
Former Attorney General William Barr, who has emerged as a key witness in the hearings, will not be testifying at upcoming hearings and has not been asked to do so by the committee, a person familiar with the matter tells NBC News.
It’s the latest mishap for the committee, which had to delay its second hearing on Monday due to its star witness, former Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien, canceling his appearance after his wife went into labor.
