The 22 senators from the Justice Committee also all made statements. Kamala Harris, Democratic nominee for vice-presidency under Joe Biden on Nov. 3, felt that this session should not have taken place because of the corona infections. She made her statement via a video link.
Republican Senator Mike Lee was physically present in the room and also addressed the committee. He tested positive for the corona virus nine days ago. Other Republicans commented that enough measures have been taken to ensure security.
