“Tensions are high, and the bar for who’s allowed in the Longworth House is very, very low,” she added.

Her husband, David Ayllon, told NBC News that she was recently hired by the news app Happs to report on the hearing. She is reportedly expected to cover the event live on social media. 

Ayllon told the publication that Myles was scouted for the job at his “Barracuda show on Sunday."
