Thursday's hearing from the House select committee investigating the Capitol insurrection will be all about former Vice President Mike Pence, who was at the center of former President Donald Trump's last-ditch effort to overturn the 2020 presidential election on January 6, 2021.

Committee aides said the hearing would make the case that Trump's pressure campaign against Pence had "directly contributed" to the violence on January 6, which placed Pence's life in danger as rioters chanted, "Hang Mike Pence."
