Clearly the Democrats are uncomfortable sitting across from families, who a year later, still have no answers on what happened to their loved ones. The Democrat response to situations exposing truths they don’t like is to walk out. Flashback – Holder Contempt vote over Fast and Furious.

Key item that came out of the Oversight hearing was that Hillary Clinton’s top aides (Cheryl Mills and Charlene Lamb) were given a ‘heads up’ and it  comes out in the second video below that the ARB report was given to Clinton and Lamb before it was made public.
