Not a total victory, but close. And almost as good as a live broadcast. Of course all assuming that the Republicans aren't lying.

"Grateful for a fair hearing from judge. Hard to protect my rights without being in contempt, which I don’t believe in. So will sit in the dark, but Republicans agree I’m free to talk when done and transcript released in 24 hours. This is the closest I can get to public testimony."

Sounds better than the 5 min per questioner and the grandstanding that does nothing. Why closed session? Mostly so they can ask a line of questioning that leads to answers rather than gotchas. They can also discuss classified info without having to hear the "I can't comment due to security" responses. Will we get to hear it all, no it'll be redacted before release.
