A string of embarrassing incidents has led many to question whether the young congressman from North Carolina was really ready for the job.
Reps. Jim Jordan and Kevin McCarthy were among five House Republicans subpoenaed to testify by the 1/6 Committee.
The New York Democrat didn't hold back during a House committee hearing Wednesday.
The time for politely asking for voluntary cooperation with the investigation is over.

This story was constructed with the SHARI Process:
- The StoryGraph Toolkit extracted URIs from the biggest story of the day from the StoryGraph service
- Hypercane performed the following steps:
- It accepted the list of original resource URIs from the output of the StoryGraph Toolkit, and queried the Memento Aggregator to find as many mementos as possible
- For resources that were not already mementos, it submitted them to web archives with ArchiveNow
- It analyzed all mementos to automatically discover the most frequent sumgrams and named entities present in the overall story
- It analyzed all images in these mementos to automatically select the best image for the overall story
- It then formatted the data for the story based on all of this input
- Raintale took the input from Hypercane and rendered the final product with information supplied by MementoEmbed
