  1. Bennie Thompson:

    No one is exempt from the review of Homeland Security Committee. And without saying,' We will do this to former President Donald Trump,' or some other individual, I will trust the professional investigation that will be conducted. I will trust the people who are tasked with the responsibility of a deep dive into the scope and circumstances that got us to January 6, and if in fact they bring to us that information, that says' you need to do this,' there is absolutely no reluctance on my part as chair to issue the subpoena.

  2. Van Heerden:

    You can't outrun the rhino, if it means to dive into a thorn bush to the left or to the right, we need to get out of its way in a big hurry.

    Dive deep into what is truly important to you and your lifestyle when it comes to the home you’re buying. Your ‘must-have’ criteria may be a two-car garage, a pool, or proximity to your work location, but perhaps you’re willing to forego an in-unit washer and dryer, a balcony, or a water view.

  5. Dale Vince:

    We thought, you know what, what we can do with this is actually bring our message to a new world, the world of soccer -- relatively untouched by eco stuff. Our work is on the issues of energy, transport and food; and within soccer you find that, like a stick of rock, written through the middle. So we decided to dive in, rescue the club, create the greenest soccer club perhaps in the world and use that as a way to reach a totally different audience.
