Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., told MSNBC that the delay was necessary to give the select committee’s video team more time to compile exhibits. “Putting together the video and the exhibits is an exhausting exercise for our very small video staff … so we’re trying to give them a little room to do their technical work,” Lofgren said, Axios reported.
