Bum’s Rush

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) used to be the head of the congressional committee investigating Benghazi!, but when the new Congress came in back in January he got rotated out and replaced by Rep. Trey Gowdy pf South Carolina.  That didn’t stop him from trying to get in on what he considers to be the worst political scandal since Queen Victoria and the ladies of the bedchamber, so he tried to sneak into a closed hearing of the committee to hear what former Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal had to say.

Hilarity ensued.

Issa marched into the closed-door deposition and remained inside for about a minute before he was escorted out by the panel’s chairman, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.).

The pair briefly exchanged hushed words in a nearby hallway before Issa stormed off, throwing an empty soda can into a nearby trash bin.

Gowdy returned to the private session after the incident.

“Sorry about that,” he said as he went back in.

“And stay out!”
