Johnson interrupted him, “Just like you prepared for every little thing else? For each and every contingency? I bought it. Listen. It is bureaucratic speak. “

Information are “bureaucratic speak” when Republicans really don’t want to hear them.

The purpose of congressional hearings is to conduct oversight. They are intended to be tools for accountability and information gathering.

Sen. Johnson didn’t want to hear the specifics. Ron Johnson is a national shame since he does not treatment about details. Johnson is only at the hearing to press his misinformation.

It is a disgraceful abuse of oversight electric power and exhibits why Ron Johnson does not belong in the United States Senate.
