Former Sen. Joseph Lieberman will be among the witnesses at the first congressional hearing on the Boston Marathon bombings this week.

As the former chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security, the Connecticut Democrat-turned-independent is expected to provide some insight into Congress' broad investigation of the April 15 tragedy that killed three and left dozens wounded.

House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mike McCaul of Texas said the hearing this Thursday will be the first in a series in both the House and the Senate.

The House panel is expected to examine a number of issues, including how federal, state, and local officials worked together and the challenges associated with securing the United States since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

“Ultimately the investigation will assess how our efforts have evolved to meet the dynamic terrorist threat of foreign-inspired attacks on our soil, and what changes may be necessary to protect the homeland,” McCaul said.

Witnesses at Thursday’s hearing will also include Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis and Kurt Schwartz, the Massachusetts undersecretary for Homeland Security.
