George Floyd's brother to testify in front of House Judiciary Committee

Philonise Floyd, the brother of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who died in Minneapolis police custody on May 25, will testify before the House Judiciary Committee next Wednesday, June 10, sources confirmed to The Hill.

It's not yet clear if Philonise Floyd will testify in-person or virtually now that the House has amended its procedures to allow virtual hearings in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

The hearing comes as House Democrats plan to unveil policing reform legislation this week that would repeal the so-called "qualified immunity" doctrine on Monday.
