Yes, there’s another Congressional hearing today, this one, at 10 AM ET, is held by the Senate Judiciary Committee where the Department of Justice’s inspector general, Michael Horowitz, will testify about his recent report on the origins of the Russia investigation.
Horowitz’s report has debunked the right-wing conspiracy theory that the Russia investigation was not properly predicated. But Trump stooge William Barr, posing as the U.S. attorney general, quickly moved to undermine the findings.
So today’s hearing has import, especially within the context of the impeachment process.

So far, I’ve only heard one Republican speaker make what seemed like an honorable argument: Martha Roby. I don’t agree with it but it was, as the lawyers I used to work with said, colorable.
In the case of Lindsey Graham this is a symbiotic relationship. He turns to Fox News to know what to say. In the Senate he does what he does so his behavior is fit to earn a positive Fox News review. All to appease Trump’s rabidly sycophantic voter base, Fox’s audience.
