13 of the 41 Republicans who crashed a closed-door hearing to protest an alleged lack of transparency sit on committees?
with the power to question witnesses and review documents. Do you think the Cons will notice the obvious stunt like when Pence went to a Football Game so he could leave?

These same party crashers who broke the law today had met at the White House with a desperate and defensive Donald Trump, so there is a strong possibility that Trump was pushing for this justice-delaying criminally partisan stunt.
The impeachment investigation is like a Grand Jury, and a Grand Jury is secret. Witnesses before a Grand Jury can reveal what they said, but no one else who participates can legally spill the proverbial "beans." There are House Republicans serving on the Committee taking the depositions of witnesses, and each Committee member of either party is given equal time to ask questions, so the Trump-sent Republicans who forcefully crashed into the secret proceedings with their cellphones active (a violation of the law) did nothing useful other than cause a five-hour delay. They did order themselves some pizza, it turns out. Childish and ineffective.

false sitting on those committees only allow them to review the transcripts not question the witness op.
