Lights Mysteriously Go OUT During House Judiciary Hearing In NYC

During the House Judiciary Hearing in New York City the lights went out suddenly when Rep. Chip Roy was addressing the floor.

The Hearing was called “Victims of Violent Crime in Manhattan” and aimed to call out Alvin’s Bragg soft approach to crime in the city.

Watch the moment the lights went out here:

It’s quite bizarre the lights would shut off during a major hearing.

The Hill had these details to share about the hearing:

Lawmakers of both parties may have gotten more than they bargained for during a field hearing in New York City on Monday organized in the shadow of former President Trump’s indictment in the city.

Ostensibly about high crime rates in New York under the leadership of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D), who is prosecuting Trump, House Judiciary Republicans faced a series of complaints from their Democratic colleagues that the hearing was little more than an effort to aid a political ally facing criminal charges.

Over the course of a sometimes-raucous four hours, Judiciary Chair Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) struggled to manage numerous interruptions from the audience, protestors and, at times, the invited witnesses.

“Today’s hearing is about the administration of justice and keeping communities safe, something that has always been a central focus of the House Judiciary Committee,” Jordan said in his opening remarks.

This isn’t the first time lights have cut off during an important hearing.

The lights went out during the Twitter hearing too.
