Dems Pull Anti-Issa Stunt on the House Floor

You’ll remember, Lerner on March 5 invoked the Fifth Amendment during her second appearance before the panel, prompting Issa to shut down the hearing. Ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said he had a “a procedural question.” When it became clear that what Cummings actually had was a political statement, Issa cut his mike.
