Boehner, so far, has been unmoved by the hearing fallout. “From what I understand, I think Mr. Issa was within his rights to adjourn the hearing when he did,” he told reporters on the Hill on Thursday.
Cummings did the media rounds yesterday to complain about Issa’s behavior, as well. After Issa’s call, he issued a statement.
“This evening, Chairman Issa telephoned me and apologized for his conduct, and I accepted his apology,” Cummings said. “My sincere hope is that as we move forward, we will respect the opinions of all members of the committee, we will proceed in a deliberate and considered manner to obtain the facts, we will refrain from making accusations that have no basis in fact, and we will seek resolution rather than unnecessary conflict.”
