In wake of impeachment, Trump allies boycott House Intelligence tech hearing
[www.reuters.com]

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives Intelligence Committee refused to attend a subcommittee hearing on technology and national security on Wednesday, boycotting the panel’s first public hearing since the acrimonious impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Democratic Representative Jim Himes said he had received a letter on Wednesday morning saying the Republicans would not attend because they disagreed with the committee’s priorities and calling the hearing “a publicity event.”

Aides to Representatives Devin Nunes, the ranking Republican of the full Intelligence Committee, and Chris Stewart, ranking Republican on the Strategic Technology and Advanced Research Subcommittee, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The subcommittee hearing, with testimony from experts on intelligence and technology, addressed the relationship between the U.S. intelligence community and the private sector as new technologies make their way into the marketplace.

Himes apologized to the witnesses and continued with the hearing. “We’re going to make the best of it ... and do what we were hired to do by the American people,” he said.

Voting nearly along party lines, the Republican-led Senate acquitted Trump of abusing his power and obstructing Congress’ investigation on Feb. 5.

I don't understand - why are they doing this? Is it because Adam Schiff is head of the committee?

Because Trump is the President of the US, and has succeeded in bypassing the separation of powers and checks and balances that rule our country.

The only lever of government Trump doesn't dominate is the House of Representatives, since he can't control it he'll kneecap it.

And if they won't revive it, then that must be proof that it's real and they're covering it up.
