Rep. Peter King: Critics Who Wanted Hearing Broadened After Norway Attacks Are "Vacuous Ideologues"

Rep. Peter King (R-NY) came under criticism this week for refusing to broaden a series of hearings on Muslim radicalization in the wake of Friday's terror attack in Norway. During today's hearing, King responded, lashing out at the "politically correct media" for "shamelessly attempting to exploit the horrific tragedy in Norway this past Friday to cause me to refocus these hearings away from Muslim-American radicalization." He went on to say that he "will not back down," in part because he "owe[s] it to all the friends, neighbors, and constituents I lost on September 11th."

The "Cozy Ties" Rep. Issa Covered Up Between The Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission And Big Banks

This week, a House Oversight subcommittee indefinitely suspended a scheduled hearing entitled "What Went Wrong At The Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission?" The commission's final report, which blamed the "captains of finance" for causing the financial crisis, was roundly criticized by Republicans. Prior reporting had indicated that Rep. Darrell Issa's (R-CA) Oversight Committee investigation centered on the "cozy ties ... between key Democratic commission members and trial lawyers suing banks on behalf of state employee and union pension funds." In choosing to target the GOP's political enemies, the Issa investigation appeared to be covering up parallel relationships between the financial industry and Republican commission members and commission staff. Indeed, a report from the committee's Democratic staff, the preparation of which may have triggered the hearing's cancelation, found that Republican FCIC Vice Chair Bill Thomas' FCIC staff was providing confidential information to Thomas' law firm, which represents major banks.
