Cummings: We’ll Stop Any Issa ‘Witchhunts’ (VIDEO)
Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) — the man Democrats chose to go toe-to-toe with incoming House Oversight Committee Chair Darrell Issa (R-CA) — is making the rounds on cable news and showing off the aggressive style that helped him win the spot.
Cummings said that he expects to see the tougher version of Issa — in other words, not the Issa who walked back his harshest statements and said he wanted to work with the administration — and said his staff is ready for an “avalanche of subpoenas coming out and all kinds of inquires” similar to what happened during the Clinton administration.
“Even when he said he was walking it back the other day he said that he wasn’t accusing the president of being corrupt, one of the most corrupt in the history of the country but then he said that he was accusing the administration, which I think is worse,” Cummings said. “I think he’s then accusing everybody in the administration. I think it’s just so unfair.”
“We on the Democratic side are holding this administration to a high standard ourselves, and so what we want is fairness. We want the American people to see the total picture, not just a part of the picture,” Cummings continued.
