12. I see that the issue isn't referred to in the rules as stated

However, I'm fairly certain I heard Klobuchar mention and emphasize the joint hearing was about facts and NOT politics.

Indicating that is how this joint committee would proceed. I feel like if that isn't an indication that it is a rule that they were to go by, then there is no point mentioning that reference, in fact no point in holding a hearing on this at all, particularly since an independent commission is about to be formed and given the authority to proceed with hearings etc.

This was just a stupid exercise in so called oversight. Unfortunate really.

The joint hearing is a joke. The ground rules was to keep the politics out of it msfiddlestix Feb 2021 #8
It's not that easy. There is no fast expulsion of congressional members. Because of due process. ancianita Feb 2021 #11

You are right. Even when she sees their politicization, all she can do is refer their statements ancianita Feb 2021 #13
Good Point. I hope she approaches future considerations based on this experience msfiddlestix Feb 2021 #15
Because it's the factual basis that justifies her leadership decisions & prevents challenge. ancianita Feb 2021 #20
