The Jan. 6 House select committee says its hearing tonight will include testimony from two witnesses who interacted directly with the Proud Boys during the riot at the Capitol.

The panel announced earlier this week that it will call documentarian Nick Quested to testify about his experience filming members of the Proud Boys in the week leading up to and on Jan. 6, 2021, and Capitol Police Officer Caroline Edwards, who was injured after she was part of an altercation involving members of the Proud Boys while defending the US Capitol.

Quested has already been deposed by the committee and Justice Department officials about his experience and has provided the committee and the department with video footage from the filming of his documentary.

He was embedded with the Proud Boys for a significant period of time leading up to Jan. 6, 2021, and is considered a firsthand fact witness because of the amount of time he spent with the group.

Some background: Leaders of the Proud Boys were involved in some of the early clashes that overpowered police lines and breached the Capitol. The group has been a focus of the Justice Department for months, and on Monday the agency charged the head of the Proud Boys, Enrique Tarrio, and four other leaders with seditious conspiracy in connection with the Jan. 6 attack.

These are the most aggressive charges brought by the Justice Department against the Proud Boys, and the first allegations by prosecutors that the group tried to forcibly oppose the presidential transfer of power.

Tarrio and his co-defendants previously pleaded not guilty to an earlier slate of charges.

Even though she’s now married to former teen heartthrob and pop megastar Justin Bieber, Hailey Bieber (née Baldwin) says she spent barely any time around boys as a teenager.

In a chat with TikTok star Dixie D’Amelio, posted on D’Amelio’s YouTube page on Sunday, the 24-year-old model shared that being homeschooled during high school may have been responsible for her lack of social interaction with boys her age at the time.

“I missed out on interacting with boys,” Hailey said. “I think I’m okay now, but … when you’re in high school, it’s boys and girls. It’s a different environment.”

Hailey was homeschooled for the majority of her teen years

During her conversation with D’Amelio, Hailey said she went to a regular brick-and-mortar school in fifth, sixth, and seventh grades before switching to home school for eighth grade and all of high school.

Hailey told D’Amelio that her parents, Stephen and Kennya Baldwin, gave her the option of either going to a Christian school or be homeschooled. They were opposed to her going to a public school, Hailey said.

“I actually wanted to go to a performing arts school in New York City and they didn’t want me to do that either. So, I just chose to stay home,” Hailey added.

However, she said that she didn’t feel particularly socially isolated despite being homeschooled because she went to ballet classes almost every day for over a decade.

“All of my socializing and my friend interactions, for the most part, were there so I don’t feel like I really missed out,” Hailey said.

The model went on to marry pop megastar Justin Bieber when she was 21

Hailey and Justin briefly dated in 2016 and broke up for several years before reuniting in 2018 and getting married in a courthouse in New York City later that year.

They had a bigger wedding ceremony in South Carolina the following year, surrounded by celebrities like Jaden Smith, Usher, and Kendall and Kylie Jenner.

In an intervew for Elle’s March cover story, Hailey said that while she got married to the 27-year-old singer “insanely young” and that it “sounds almost ridiculous when you say it out loud,” getting married so soon made sense for the couple.

“We’ve seen a lot for our age. We have both lived enough life to know that’s what we wanted,” she said.
