The letter to the committee from StemExpress also said some of the last-minute “exhibits” were unverifiable, out of context, possibly doctored screenshots of their website. One screenshot makes it look like StemExpress was advertising fetal tissue as “profitable,” they said, when the website was really discussing the company’s tissue procurement business as a whole.
Republicans refused to divulge the sources of any of their exhibits, other than to say that they were “discovered” during the course of the committee’s investigation. But Media Matters discovered that most of the exhibits seem to have been ripped straight from the Center for Medical Progress’s website. The silly charts above were apparently created by committee staff, based on God only knows what data.
And all of this might be funny if it weren’t so tragically misguided or so dangerously irresponsible.
