Cummings Responds to Issa's Apology

Washington, DC (Mar. 6, 2014) – Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, issued the following statement after Chairman Darrell Issa apologized to him for refusing to allow him to speak during yesterday’s hearing on the IRS:

“This evening, Chairman Issa telephoned me and apologized for his conduct, and I accepted his apology.  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.”
