1. My take


Unlike in a trial where you're trying to prove specific elements of a crime or civil wrong, a congressional hearing is more of an open ended fact-finding process. This requires not just laying out basic facts, but asking additional questions, delving into the testimony to test it, pull out more facts, and possibly develop additional evidence. That takes much longer than traditional testimony that people are used to seeing in a courtroom trial.
