The Citizen Hearing On Disclosure: Sgt. Jim Penniston (USAF, Ret.)

April 8, 2013

This is part of an on-going series that is going to highlight the witnesses that are going to be speaking at The Citizens Hearing on Disclosure being held at the National Press Club in Washington, DC from April 29 to May 3, 2013. More information can be found on their website at

As you will see, these are not just any witnesses – these are high level officials that are risking life and limb to bring forth disclosure.

The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure will attempt to accomplish what the U. S. Congress has failed to do for forty-five years – seek out the facts surrounding the most important issue of this or any other time.

The main ballroom of the National Press Club will be configured to resemble a Senate hearing room. There will be press areas, an audience area, witness tables and committee tables.

The Hearing committee will be composed of former members of the United States Congress. They will conduct themselves in the same manner as when they sat in committee during their tenure in Congress. To the extent possible the protocols for congressional hearings will be followed. Committee members will receive written statements from witnesses, hear oral statements and ask whatever questions they wish about the subject matter at hand.
