Steve,

I disagree with your assumption that "most of them wouldn't make
the cut". Certainly there are several who are not credible, but
I believe that well over half the witnesses whose testimony has
been documented by DP are credible.

For some of them, documentation might be a problem due to covert
acts to interfere with verification, but it would seem
reasonable that at least some members of Congress would realize
that concessions should be made for such cases.

It certainly would make the strongest case to bring forth the
most credible witnesses with the best credentials.
