Here is an interesting excerpt from page 72.
Ranking Member Doug Collins had noticed the Democrat Lieu was live tweeting information being spoken in the hearing.
Collins interrupted the proceedings with this:
Mr. Collins. Could I just – I apologize, and I know we talked about this before. And we’ll stop the clock, we’ll give you a full hour. But it’s also been discussed in here that this was – and the chairman made a great elaborate statement as we started this about being confidential and keeping that through the day. But Mr. Lieu is live-tweeting this. So I mean, if he’s willing to break his own chairman, I want it noted for the record that the Member of the Democratic Party in this committee is live-tweeting what his own chairman had asked him to keep confidential. Now, if this is the way we want to play it, we’ve now proven that this is nothing but a political stunt. It is a press avail opportunity. And if Mr. Lieu would like to go outside and testify to the press, that’s fine. But simply doing this like it is, it’s a mockery. And I don’t care what the answer will be. This was not what the chairman had said at the outset. And unless there was a meeting for a dramatic reading of what the chairman said, this is ridiculous.
Mr. Lieu. I’ve been live-tweeting their objections because they are so absurd.
Mr. Collins. Did you have trouble understanding the chairman?
Mr. Lieu. The objections –
Mr. Collins. Did you have trouble understanding your chairman?
Mr. Lieu. [Inaudible.]
Mr. Collins. Did you have any trouble with your chairman?
Mr. Neguse. Mr. Chairman, this is the majority’s hour.
Mr. Collins. And I said stop the clock.
Mr. Neguse. The ranking member’s objection has been noted. I think at this point, start back the clock, Mr. Eisen can proceed
