Congressional Hearings

Hosted by

From McCarthy to Iran-Contra, GM to Planned Parenthood, Congress has used high-profile hearings as a way to shed light on injustice and score political points. Sometimes it is hard to tell which they’re trying to accomplish. You could say that about the Benghazi hearings now taking place on Capitol Hill.
