Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said he apologized Thursday to his colleague Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) for cutting him off at a hearing earlier this week. His apology came after the U.S. House voted down a resolution that would have condemned the Republican congressman's behavior.
In a Wednesday hearing, Rep. Issa, Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, turned off the microphone of Rep. Cummings, the committee's ranking Democrat, while he was in the middle of speaking. The Maryland Democrat protested the move, shouting that he had a question.
