A peek into what a Senate committee hearing looks like comes to us today as the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Terrorism and Homeland Security meets to hear testimony on “cybersecurity.” Here’s what the hearing room looks like.
Absent from the hearing: Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, John Cornyn of Texas, Richard Durbin of Illinois, Dianne Feinstein of California, Orrin G. Hatch of Utah, Ted Kaufman of Delaware, Herb Kohl of Wisconsin, Charles Schumer of New York, Jeff Sessions of Alabama
Keep this in mind the next time you hear someone on the subcommittee besides Ben Cardin or Jon Kyl crow about how important it is to keep vigilant about our national security. The last time I checked, in order for vigils to work people have to show up. But don’t worry; I’m sure that the missing senators will not read the transcripts of the hearing later.
