Oklahoma Congressman Markwayne Mullins made it clear in a recent House subcommittee hearing what he felt about the protests of Native Americans against the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota.

Mullins, whose bloodline includes Native American was highly critical of the efforts of the Standing Rock Sioux in refusing to negotiate with Energy Transfer Partners as the company attempted to complete the $3.8 billion oil pipeline. He raised the issue how the company attempted 389 times to meet with tribal leaders and demanded answers from Chad Harrison, a councilman at large with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.

 

Mullins is a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. Its subcommittee on Energy held a hearing into modernizing energy and electricity delivery systems.

Listen to Rep. Markwayne Mullin’s questioning of Chad Harrison of Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.
