Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee this morning are boycotting a public hearing...

Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee this morning are boycotting a public hearing convened on emerging technologies and national security, citing the committee's lack of hearings or briefings on FISA abuse.




In a letter to Chairman Adam Schiff, GOP members write, “Until the Committee prioritizes oversight activities related to urgent and critical concerns, Republican Members cannot support distractions from our core responsibilities”

Here’s the half-empty dais



In their letter, Republicans say there are “numerous committees” in the House that can conduct hearings on emerging science and technology matters, and that House Intel should focus on “critical issues we are uniquely postured to address.”

But...

... it’s very much worth noting the country’s counterintelligence chief warned just this Monday of the growing threat from foreign adversaries leveraging new technologies for espionage:

Subcommittee chairman @jahimes called GOP letter "as wrongheaded as it is mendacious," and said Rep. Stewart (its ranking member) told him GOP was reluctant to engage in committee's public work because of grievances related to impeachment - an issue not mentioned in their letter

The hearing is nonetheless ongoing, and streaming here:

5. Republicans: "Wah-wah-wah! We don't like political stunts so we're skipping the meeting! Wah!"

And here, the Republicans always claim they belong to the party that's most concerned about national security.

7. They do publicity stunts and want political investigations ...

GOPers accuse the innocent while GOPers are guilty.
