Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a Democrat from Connecticut, called out the Department of Justice for failing to appear at today's hearing despite being invited.
"The Department of Justice today was a no-show. The Department of Justice failed to appear. They have responsibility ultimately for the FBI, for the prosecutions, and for action here."
He said that the DOJ "hasn't run out of action" in terms of its responsibility to the case. Blumenthal reiterated that the DOJ "should be answering many of the questions" posed at the hearing today.
"So I am by no means satisfied with what I heard today," he said.
