I guess your saying they should bypass the laws and let him testify. The democrats would raise hell, when they found out the truth later. Not surprised at your statement for a left wingnut.

You may feel he is a "rethug" but he holds elected office has defined in the constitution. Cordray holds an appointed position subject to senate confirmation. There are legitimate questions has to his appointment and therefore the congressman was well within his rights to say that Cordray could not testify.
