Axios explains how the 1/6 Commission offers a 'new template' for congressional hearings in the future

The wheels fell off the January 6th Commission’s latest “bombshell” allegation after Secret Service agents disputed the story told by Cassidy Hutchinson about Trump’s actions on January 6th of 2021. Politico has reported that the 1/6 committee never even reached out to the Secret Service for comment before Hutchinson’s testimony (almost certainly because they knew what the response would be):

The Jan. 6 committee didn’t reach out to the Secret Service in the days before it aired explosive testimony about an alleged physical altercation between Donald Trump and his security detail on the day of the riot, according to an agency spokesperson.

Anthony Guglielmi, the service’s chief of communications, told POLITICO that select committee investigators did not ask Secret Service personnel to reappear or answer questions in writing in the 10 days before asking Hutchinson about the matter at the hearing.

“[W]e were not asked to reappear before the Committee in response to yesterday’s new information and we plan on formally responding on the record,” he wrote in an email. “We have and will continue to make any member of the Secret Service available.”
[…]
It’s not clear why the select panel didn’t seek further corroboration from the Secret Service as it planned Hutchinson’s hearing. Members of the select committee have said they welcome any more information about the Secret Service altercation that witnesses would provide under oath.

Axios is now reporting that this kind of thorough and responsible congressional hearing might be a good thing moving forward because of all the revelations and drama reserved for people like Rob Reiner and George Conway:

“A new template for effective government hearings”? Oh, please.

How they did it? A complicit media always helps.

The committee is also set up like a show trial so no defense is allowed to be presented, which also helps.

“New template”? No thanks.

They’ve “over-delivered on revelations” as long as you consider hearsay that’s been disputed by the people who were cited to be very revealing of the truth.

Libs and media (pardon the redundancy) in the Acela corridor bubble think this is all a big deal, but elsewhere people have other concerns.
