Typical slanted yellow journalism for a media overtaken by Marxists... the focus is taken off a Democrat refusing to testify, stonewalling Congress like Democrats have stonewalled on Benghazi, Fast and Furious, et.al... the focus for the Democrat Liberal Marxist dominated media is turned to a whining Black Congressman, who shows up to do this same slight of hand at every Congressional investigation of Democrats wrongdoing. AFTER the hearing is closed, Cummings starts whining about not being able to make an opening statement AFTER the hearing is closed. A media stunt almost as ridiculous as Hillary screaming "what difference do it make" and the media ignored her stonewalling, too.

Democrats have become tyrannical, lying, grandstanding slugs.

To be fair, he protested these "one-sided" investigations when Waxman led them, right?

Darrell Issa is as repulsive as they come. Someone should do a witch hunt into Issa's criminal record.

Larry Boie your party partiality is showing?? Someone should run a full investigation on Cummings, they probably would find out he hadn't graduated from kindergarten? If they ran an IQ test on that poo' boy, it probably show up in the negative range.

Cummings is ticked because his mike was shut down?

Tell him to talk to the senators who had their voices shut down by a change to the rules courtesy of Harry Reid.

I remember Elijah Cummings quite well from senior high school (Baltimore--1969). He was always the consummate self-promoter; little seems to have changed. He staged that ridiculous scene with Issa because he sensed the walls are closing in on Obama's thugs at the IRS --- hardly a "phony scandal" or "smidgen". If the media were even quasi-balanced, heads would be rolling all over D.C. by now.

Can you tell me when one of Darrell Issa's "inquiries" yielded any damning results, except to himself?

The hearing was adjourned after the primary witness for that day took the 5th and did not testify. If it's an investigative committee there shouldn't be speeches. Investigation means questions and presentation of facts.

Cummings should've made his speech off record to committee members. Or divert attention away from Lerner not testifying in another fashion or venue. He didn't want the hearing ending on 'I take the fifth' which is used regards to criminal activity.
