On Monday, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) wanted to make perfectly clear that he thought the House Judiciary Committee’s hearing with Richard Nixon’s former White House Counsel John Dean was a complete waste of time.

“I don’t know if they accomplished anything, but this is their pattern,” said Jordan, complaining that all Democrats wanted to do with their committee power was hurt President Donald Trump.

So it was a notable when just a day later, when his committee held an emotional hearing about getting health care for 9/11 first responders sickened by their exposure to toxic dust and chemicals at Ground Zero, Jordan was nowhere to be found.

When it came time to discuss a concrete issue that had nothing to do with Trump investigations, House Democrats were there — and Jordan, for all his bluster, was not.

Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."
I will NOT comply.

Are you implying the Republicans did show up at the committee hearing, because you don't like my source?

It's not just Republican Congressmen who are shameful.

Can anyone find a list?  The only ones I can confirm there were Nadler-NY, Cohen-TN, and Johnson-LA.
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

According to NY Post

In front of Stewart was ​House ​Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler​ of New York, along with ​Democratic Reps. Steve Cohen​ of Tennessee​, Mary Gay Scanlon​ of Pennsylvania​, Jamie Raskin ​of Maryland ​and the top Republican in the ​Judiciary subcommittee, Rep. Mike Johnson ​of Louisiana.

No, @Once-Ler, I'm suggesting that a radical leftwing spewsite might not be a reliable source.

I would suggest that this news is being presented in an intentionally provocative manner.

I understand that while congressmen were in and out during the course of the hearing, only two were definitely absent for the entire thing - one was Eric Swalwell (who can't get a mention here, for some reason) and the other a republican from Pennsylvania whom I've never heard of.

Heard this on Wilkow today. Several sub-committees hold hearings at the same time so the reps come and go. Deliberate drama by Stewart. The media is acting as if this wouldn't have passed without liberal tears.

More fodder for the media and hit & run posters.
