easily. it is actually a very simple situation, not a big deal. we will be having a press conference sometime in early january. a little bittalk more about your conversation with president obama. is the transition going smoothly? >> he called me. we had a very good talk generally about things. he was in hawaii. it was a very nice call, and i actually thought we covered a lot of good territory. >> are you satisfied with the transition so far? >> our staffs are getting along well. i am getting along very well. it and smiledt about it, and nobody is ever going to know because were not going to be going against each other in that way, but it was a great conversation. hesenator graham today said

90, take a look at what is happening, they are out for 20 reprimands, and other nations that are horrible places, treat people horribly, have not even been reprimanded, so there is something going on, and i think it is very unfair to israel. thank you very much. >> thank you. over the next few hours, i look back at congressional hearings from the past year. first up, the flint, michigan livingroblem, resident with lead tainted water for the past two years or more. the health oversight committee hears testimony from the governor of michigan and the head of the epa. here is congressman elijah cummings, the top democrat on that committee. >> there will now be an entire generation of children who suffer from brain damage,

later, c-span takes a look at the senate banking committee's hearing on wells fargo cross-selling. peer before the committee to explain why thousands of wells fargo employees had opened unauthorized accounts in customers names. here is senator of elizabeth warren of massachusetts: for the ceo to resign. ifwhat gets me about this is one of your tellers took a handful of $20 bills out of the cash door, they would probably be looking at criminal charges for theft. they could end up in prison, but you squeezed your employees to the breaking point so they would cheat customers and you could drive up the value of your stock and put hundreds of millions of dollars in your own pocket, and when it all blew up, you kept your job, kept your multimillion dollar bonuses, and you went on
television to blame thousands of $12 an hour employees who were just trying to make cross sale quotas that made you rich. this is about accountability. you should resign. you should give back the money that you took while this scam was going on, and you should be by thelly investigated department of justice and the sec. we will also look back at a senate hearing with top executives from the cable and satellite industry. they were called to testify about a report on cable and satellite companies overcharging customers for equipment and services. we will show you portions of all of these hearings tonight, but keep in mind that you can always watch them in their entirety any time at our website, c-span.org. with thein tonight flint, michigan water contamination hearing.
