A Senate staffer attempts to deliver a poster to the hearing room where former acting Attorney General Sally Yates and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper testified on Monday before the Senate Judiciary Crime and Terrorism Subcommittee.

The panel is examining “Russian Interference in the 2016 United States election”. Yates was fired by President Donald Trump when she refused to direct the Justice Department to defend his initial executive order banning visitors and immigrants from several Muslim-majority countries. Clapper resigned his position when Trump took office.
