During a House committee hearing yesterday, a Republican Representative called consumer advocate Elizabeth Warren a liar, suggesting she’d “made up” an agreement to limit her testimony to one hour.

Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC), who chairs a House Oversight subcommittee, further accused Warren of trying to impose upon Congress and make demands of its members, seemingly in an effort to tarnish her reputation in the minds of other representatives.

The New York Times has more.

Update: Later in the hearing, a Democratic Rep. apologized to Warren, telling her that Republicans want to seize upon anything at all to make her look bad because “people are afraid of you.”
