Investigative Journalists, Former FBI Testify
This week, I held a hearing looking at misconduct of the FBI and Department of Justice and suppression of the media during the Crossfire Hurricane investigation.
We heard testimony from investigative journalists Sharyl Attkisson and Lee Smith, as well as from former FBI Assistant Director Kevin Brock.
This corruption should be troubling to every member of Congress, yet no Democrats participated in this hearing (except the Ranking Member's opening statement saying we shouldn't be holding this hearing).
I've boiled down the nearly-two hour hearing into these shorter videos.
We also released 430 pages of new documents in this case. Read more in these articles:

Early Treatment of COVID-19 Hearing
Another hearing I held before Thanksgiving was called the most important Senate hearing of the year by the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. It focused on the urgent need for early home treatment for COVID-19 patients. Sadly, it has been grossly mischaracterized by the mainstream media.
It was an eye-opening hearing with frontline doctors advocating for more focus to be placed on early at-home treatment options. Right now, if you get COVID you are told to stay home and just hope you don't get hospitalized. How is that compassionate?
We will continue exploring this topic next week with another hearing.
We've boiled down the first 2.5 hour hearing into 30 minutes for your review here.

Joseph Project Graduates Find Work
Our November Joseph Project class may have been small but it was mighty! Two of the graduates started work this week and we will start class #99 the week of December 14 in Milwaukee.
This volunteer-led program offers interviewing and life skills training and ongoing support once participants get hired. Well over 500 people have received jobs through the Joseph Project.
