Capitol Police officer Caroline Edwards and British filmmaker Nick Quested will testify before the congressional committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 riots at the U.S. Capitol.

Edwards was reportedly one of the first officers injured in the attack. According to The New York Times, Edwards suffered a concussion and chemical burns from a spray rioters were using.

Quested was embedded with the Proud Boys prior to Jan. 6, 2021 and on the day of the attack, according to CBS News.

Members of the Proud Boys are facing federal charges in connection to the attack.

Thursday's prime-time hearing will begin at 8 p.m. Eastern.

The committee says it will provide a summary of its findings of "the coordinated, multi-step effort to overturn the 2020 presidential election."
