A federal grand jury would operate in secret; should it uncover any prosecutable offenses, those would be completely emasculated by Eric Holder.
On the other hand, the committee proceedings demand coverage by the media. While much of the liberal MSM would downplay negative findings, enough of the information developed would be dispersed by alternative media that serious questions would arise in much of the voting public.
respectfully the key word here is “indictments”.
if the American people allowed any attorney general to ignore or attempt to nullify a federal grand jury indictment, then we no longer deserve to be a free people with a constitutional republic.
it is dangerous to be satisfied with political theater or entertained by it.
with a lawless and out of control federal government, we need to return to a concept called “enforcing law” and a congressional committee is not the instrument for that.
