Video: Darrell Issa vs. Elijah Cummings on Fast and Furious

Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa and Ranking member Elijah Cummings, who is registered with Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), appeared together on Fox News Sunday. Issa is rightfully focused on getting the documents involved in the Justice Department's demonstrably false February 4, 2011 letter that it didn't retract for ten months. Cummings comes across as foolish while making straw man arguments.

For example, Cummings claims this is a witch hunt against Holder and proceeds to whine about Issa not calling former Acting ATF Director Kenneth Melson publicly before the Committee, despite the fact that Melson testified in private session for two days before congressional investigators last July. Issa explains that Holder is the guy withholding the documents and that Melson - as well as a slew of others involved - would be called before the committee publicly once Holder releases the documents that would help the Committee prepare to ask these individuals the necessary questions.

Another takeaway here is that Issa seems convinced not only that the House will find Holder in contempt of Congress but that the vote will have bi-partisan support (possibly up to 31 Democrats).
