“Our committee will consider it”
Translation: It ain’t gonna happen.
Issa adjourned for obvious reasons, but also wanted to adjourn before democrats could do what Cummings did. The dems have been vicious in these hearings.
I don’t know what else he could have done - unless he held the contempt hearing right then (not sure on procedures). He may have known that Cummings was agitated before the hearing started.
Keep in mind Cummings was named in ethics charges on this very issue. He sent 3 letters to Catherine Engelbrecht and she filed a complaint.
Gowdy knows how to get Lerner to talk...
