I understand; however, the member has a right to make a statement. Whether or not it can be corroborated and whether it's accurate or not, of course, can in large part be directed as questions to the witnesses who may come here to give us that information. If his statement is meant as a prelude to soliciting a response from witnesses, his comments are in order. If it is simply meant to make, I suppose, a statement regarding information that he does not present factual information to back up or support, then it would not be in order.
I'm assuming the member would certainly be speaking relative to potential witnesses who might wish to deal with his topic, so I would ask him to continue.
