Where they first making here is going to take place got tossed was going on there right now. Saw my people are starting to arrive of course were in the Russell rotunda. And right down from the hearing room is Jeff Sessions office so reporters are kind of staking out his office for its been all morning we assume he's been going over notes. Maybe even a mock practice here in the air and then he will walk. Roughly 200 feet. From his office in June the hearing room and inside that hearing right now I know that you guys at live pictures up I just want to. Did you since the people who we've seen so far because your com of course he. Was the man that spoke about his son at the DNC then became a big circuit for Hillary Clinton he's here he will not be testifying. Arm but we saw him earlier this morning senator Corey Booker.
