For more than four hours at a much-anticipated hearing about radical Muslims in America on Capitol Hill on Thursday morning, Democrats accused Rep. Peter King, (R-N.Y.) chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, of engaging in political theater, while Republicans spoke of the need to directly address the threat of radical Islam. Republican committee members prefaced their questions to the panel with thanks to the chairman for convening an “important” conversation; California Democrat Rep. Laura Richardson called the hearing “discriminatory” and “an abuse of power.”
