The spat began as Rep. Issa, R-Calif., stood up to adjourn the
hearing, but Rep. Cummings requested to ask a “procedural question.”
While making a statement, Issa asked Cummings to yield when the Maryland
Democrat became incensed at the California Republican.
“Mr. Chairman, you cannot run a committee like this,” Cummings appealed.
“If you will sit down and allow me to ask a question,” Cummings
insisted. “I am a member of a Congress of the United States of America.”
“I am tired of this,” Cummings continued. “You cannot just have a
one-sided investigation. There is absolutely something wrong with that,
and it is absolutely un-American.”
