Darrell Issa Abruptly Ends Hearing Before Witness Can Debunk His Attacks

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, seemed to catch everyone off guard Wednesday when he suddenly pulled the plug on his committee hearing before witnesses could even testify.

Issa read his opening statement for the hearing on potential abuses of taxpayer funds by the White House's new political office, and let his Democratic counterpart, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), read his statement before declaring the hearing over. Two witnesses who came prepared to testify were dismissed. A source who was in the hearing said one of Issa's witnesses, Carolyn Lerner, the director of the independent Office of Special Counsel, appeared to leave angrily.

2. Investigate

The Dems. should hold an investigation hearing on ASSA. Grant theft auto, insurance fraud, arson. He is a crook. Who elects these idiots? He most certainly does not "represent" the voters, he is making a name for himself.

7. What a useless grandstander he is

His every move showcases is pettiness and partisanship. He clearly is not capable of charing a committee.
