As reported earlier, the House of Representatives called an emergency hearing on Chen Guangcheng while the Obama administration made the gutsy call of ducking.

He fears for his family and wants to come to the United States.

BREAKING: Chen live now says he wants to meet with Hillary Clinton, says he's worried for his family. Chinese officials have taken his house

"I want to meet with the Secretary Clinton," Chen just told Congressional Exec Commission on China, via SPEAKERPHONE.

At least Bob Fu and Representative Smith (R-NJ) aren’t ignoring his pleas, unlike Secretary of State Clinton.

Twitchy will monitor the situation and update.


Christian Bale expressed his solidarity and desire to help the blind Chinese dissident.

Told Christian Bale called in to express his solidarity, Chen tells committee to thank him 4 "trying to get to Shandong to try to visit me."
