      U.S. Senator Joe Biden sat on testimony that could have corroborated Ms Hill’s statement in reference to the conduct of Clarence Thomas who was the former incompetent Director of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
      Congratulations Ms. Hill for standing up and speaking truth to power.
