3. I am sure glad such a stand-up guy like Bob Menendez who has no ethical challenges is leading

this effort

Remeber in 2006 when Menendez steered federal funds to a nonprofit group that was paying him rent, or in 2014 when he intervened on behalf of two accused Ecuadorian criminals in exchange for campaign donations, or in 2017 when he was accused of helping an affluent eye doctor in exchange of gifts of nearly 1 million dollars?

While I don't have a problem with a fact finding mission in the Senate foreign relations committee what happened with the Afghanistan withdrawal event, and what went wrong, I do have a problem with what happened to Secretary of State Blinken, and his treatment among some of the members of Congress, whose intent was NOT to understand what went wrong, and ask relevant questions, but instead use as an opportunity to not give Blinken a chance to answer questions, name calling with some of the most vile insinuations, and just to make political speeches.
