House Oversight Committe


Dr. Fauci blocked from testifying before House

Members of the White House's coronavirus task force will not be allowed to testify on Capitol Hill this month unless they are given permission by Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. President Trump defended the decision Tuesday saying, "The House is a bunch of Trump-haters." CBS News congressional correspondent Nancy Cordes and congressional reporter for The Washington Post Mike DeBonis join CBSN's Elaine Quijano with the latest on Capitol Hill.

CBS News' Olivia Gazis joins CBSN's "Red and Blue" to discuss her reporting.
