Welcome again to Necessary & Proper. Today we bring you the great discussion we had from the closing panel of the 2019 Legislative Branch Review Conference, held on the Hill in February in partnership with the Federalist Society's Georgetown Student Chapter. The panel reflected on the history of bipartisan Congressional investigations and shared their expectations for how civil, united, and fact-based they expect the oversight of the 116th Congress will be. We hope you find this podcast interesting and enjoyable.
