GEIST: “And you heard that from a lot of conservatives. I could pick one from any paper. Byron York said it was a very, very good day for Hillary Clinton. I think these hearings were — if this was the display that the committee put together after these months and months and months of preparation, it wasn’t very impressive.

Within the committee they fought together about getting to the truth of what happened.”
