Chen Guangcheng calls into Congressional hearing, fears for his family; Update: Actor Christian Bale offers help

As reported earlier, the House of Representatives called an emergency hearing on Chen Guangcheng while the Obama administration made the gutsy call of ducking.

He fears for his family and wants to come to the United States.

At least Bob Fu and Representative Smith (R-NJ) aren’t ignoring his pleas, unlike Secretary of State Clinton.

Twitchy will monitor the situation and update.

Update:

Christian Bale expressed his solidarity and desire to help the blind Chinese dissident.

Americans express horror at how the Obama administration is handling the situation.

Update: Christian Bale has tried to help Chen Guangcheng before.
