...Toward the end of Massie's time, witness Timothy Jenkins, who serves on the board of social justice organization Teaching for Change, criticized Massie for steering the hearing in what he believed was the wrong direction.
..."Mr. Jenkins, that's absolutely false. I can give you multiple examples," Massie replied, only for Jenkins to insist, "No, it's not false!" This prompted Massie to raise his voice while recalling a tragedy involving a former staff member.
...Committee Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., then told Massie that his time had expired, but after Massie requested permission, she allowed him to continue.
..."What you're saying, Mr. Jenkins, is absolutely incorrect," Massie said.
...Jenkins then accused him of "Filibustering," before Massie yielded back to Chairwoman Maloney.
