Thompson was telling a gaggle of younger folks, “Folks abroad who admire us as People, and we’re simply performing like hoodlums, and that’s not who we’re, so our committee’s accountability is to search out out what occurred and make suggestions again to Congress, so if adopted, it gained’t ever occur once more.”
Laslo advised us Thompson was surrounded by his new safety element and on his method to a ready automobile. But, “He took his time.”
Chairman Thompson didn’t need to take his time to talk to the younger folks and clarify to them what the 1/6 Committee is doing, however it’s heartwarming that he loves his nation and democracy a lot that he’s attempting to teach on the road and unfold American values and democracy even when he’s not within the listening to room and there aren’t any tv cameras.
