B. I.'s decision to investigate members of the trump campaign in twenty sixteen his testimony took over two hours in the morning and then another three hours in the afternoon explaining over and over that while he found no evidence of anti trump bias in the decision to start the investigation he found the FBI made way too many mistakes during the investigation mistakes serious enough that some people need to be fired it was testimony that didn't quite fit either the democratic or Republican story line but I think both sides did agree that Mister Horowitz definitely earned the compliment he received toward the end from Louisiana senator John Kennedy long day general you've got sturdy kidneys yes and I predict that America is going to need many more officials like Mister Horowitz because in an era of endless testimony integrity is not enough well you're testifying or just watching you have to be that person who deliberately chooses the window seat who doesn't get up during intermissions the error of endless hearings requires not.
