  37. Jones says:

    She’s done it again, Way to go Katie Porter

  38. S C says:

    Nothing will come of any of these hearings. It’s a big sham to make people think their representatives are looking out for them. I bet they all went out for an expensive lunch afterward.

    I wish some of these hearings actually produced results

  47. Marky Ortiz says:

    Thanks Laurence. This woman is not getting the coverage Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, Thalib, Omar, Pressley, etc are getting. She's also a member of the Progressive Democratic Caucus. Thank you Rep. Porter.

  48. susan nezami says:

    My god, she's amazing. If she was running for president, I would definitely vote for her. But I'm glad instead that she's in congress. She's going to stand up for us all!

  49. Hindukush says:

  58. Darien Guy says:

    Love Porter and AOC!

  59. BD Walters says:

    I have concluded that learning history just for historical reasons is moot. I need and want to know history for its effects on my life today. I also want to at least consider the ramifications of proposed policy. We cant prophesy, except based on the results of similar past actions. Experimentation and exploration of past as it applies to the present and its possible effects need discussed, but not to a point of boredom…hence the term '"board meetings"…everyone gets bored with the same old rehashing. Much like mass media rehashes the news that isnt new, ad nauseum. We are destined to repeat the past which we dont explore, but sometimes history is good enough to repeat and keep.

  60. docfloc says:

    That’s the way to do it.

  61. Eric Schumann says:

    Love that woman to give us the math lesson on how our law makers make 174 per year but are worth 300 million

  62. A Moore says:

    Spitfires and Lancaster bombers stayed in the air longer. She shot him down like she was an anti-aircraft battery…what a woman.

  88. BavonW W says:

    Oh, they were 'fraudulent' were they? It sounds like you realised that you'd left something that could incriminate you on your tax returns, so you came up with the fraudulent claims story.
    At the same time you needed a couple of slush accounts but you were found out, so you claimed to be a victim of identity theft.
    What bull! His stories should be subjected to some of that, old-time, Cold Case, scrutiny.
    A corporate criminal caught by a rabbit. Katie Porter is like a heat seeking missile that's locked on to you, Mr CEO.
