Former Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien will not testify before the House Select Committee on January 6 due to a “family emergency,” the committee announced Monday.

Stepien was originally expected to be the star witness of Monday’s hearing. The event will be the committee’s second public hearing, having kicked off with last week’s primetime hearing.

The hearing was delayed roughly 45 minutes from its 10 a.m. ET start time due to Stepien’s absence.
