Donald Trump’s baseless claim that the 2020 presidential election was stolen and how it fueled the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol insurrection are the planned focus Monday of the second in a series of June hearings by a House select committee. Panel members said they will also explore how Trump’s “big lie” drove Republican fundraising appeals after Joe Biden won the election.

Scheduled to testify before the committee on Monday are former Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien; Chris Stirewalt, a former political editor for Fox News; Benjamin Ginsberg, a Republican election lawyer; former U.S. attorney Byung J. “BJay” Pak; and Al Schmidt, a former city commissioner of Philadelphia. The hearing is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m.

Here’s what to know

  • Monday’s hearing follows a prime-time hearing on Thursday in which the panel began making its case that the Jan. 6 assault on the Capitol was the violent culmination of an attempted coup.
  • The witnesses summoned by the panel on Monday to make its case against Trump include Republicans and officials appointed by Republicans.
  • The Washington Post will have live coverage and analysis here before the hearings starting at 9:30 a.m. Eastern. Libby Casey anchors from the Post newsroom, with reporting and analysis from Rhonda Colvin, Hannah Jewell, Mary Beth Albright, Amber Phillips and James Hohmann.
