@TheWeek "Here are four odd details from Wednesday's bizarre circus:

1. A third of the occupiers had the right to be in the room already
Despite Republican complaints that this is a secret partisan inquiry, 48 Republicans and 59 Democrats are on the the..."
@TheWeek "...three committees allowed to attend and participate in the impeachment depositions — including 13 of the Republicans who "stormed" the SCIF, by journalist Marcy Wheeler's count."

@TheWeek "3. Gaetz really wanted the footage
"In a 'look-at-me' move that's almost too on the nose, Gaetz also broke House rules Wednesday when his staff handed out expired congressional passes to some uncredentialed reporters and the crew of HBO's The Swamp,"
@TheWeek "...HuffPost reports. "The show is following Gaetz's efforts to combat the impeachment process."
