Did the House Intelligence Committee Violate Congressional Transparency Rules?

The secretive House Intelligence Committee (HPSCI) held an organizational meeting on January 28. HPSCI, in its conduct of its meeting, may have violated the rules of the House of Representatives. The committee has not posted video of its proceedings and apparently did not provide required public notice of the meeting.  At these meetings, each committee debates and adopts rules for its operation, an oversight plan may also be adopted, and other business takes place.
