YOU GO, REP. ELIJAH CUMMINGS

I’m tired of it, too, sir.

“A congressional hearing on the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting controversy turned into a tense affair Wednesday as former IRS official Lois Lerner declined to testify and a top Republican adjourned the meeting without input from Democrats.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) asked Lerner a series of questions about her role in developing the IRS’s problematic screening methods for nonprofit groups, but Lerner refused to answer.

‘On the advice of my counsel, I respectfully exercise my Fifth Amendment right and decline to answer that question,’ the former official said repeatedly.

A frustrated Issa soon adjourned the hearing, but the panel’s ranking member, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), objected after the chairman ignored his request for a chance to ask ‘a procedural question’ first.”

Lack of communication is unhealthy.
