Congressional Committees: Finding Witness Testimony 

Looking for a witness's testimony before a congressional committee?
Here are a few resources:
Congressional Universe: Available to Law School students, faculty and staff. Can find congressional legislative history documents and citations to older documents. Takes a while for transcripts of testimony to show up on this database.
Lexis - CQ Transcripts database (identifier - POLTRN): The POLTRN file contains transcripts of 4 to 5 complete congressional hearings per day as well as press briefings from the State, Justice, and Defense departments, presidential news conferences and press briefings, and speeches and press conferences by national newsmakers.
Washington Post: Often posts transcripts from Congressional Committees. You may need to register on this site to access them but registration is free.
