With the senators limited to 5 minutes why did they even bother having this hearing? What was the real purpose of this charade? Why did Clinton choose to testify at all given the fact that: "What does it matter?" The only thing we learned from the hearings was that Hillary did not know whether weapons were being transferred to Syria via Turkey. The hearing was useless and a waste of time and money, but then this can be said about almost every hearing staged by Congress whose main purpose is to promote oneself or to transmit propaganda to the American people.
