Members of the January 6 Committee reportedly used teleprompters during the primetime hearing on Thursday evening.
Photos appear to show a running teleprompter in front of the committee’s nine members while they were making statements and playing video evidence.
“WOW they are using teleprompters,” the House Republicans’ Twitter profile posted along with a photo that featured the members and a teleprompter.

Of the committee’s nine members, there are seven Democrats and just two Republicans. Reps. Bennie Thompson (D-MI), Liz Cheney (R-WY), Adam Schiff (D-CA), Jamie Raskin (D-MD), Elaine Luria (D-VA), Pete Aguilar (D-CA), Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), Stephanie Murphy (D-FL), and Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) sit on the committee.
Despite the House resolution creating the January 6 committee requiring Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to appoint five out of 13 Republicans after consulting with House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Pelosi handpicked anti-Trump Republicans Cheney and Kinzinger to serve on the committee.
