Congressmen clash at IRS hearing


Former IRS official Lois Lerner pleaded the Fifth Wednesday at a congressional hearing over the treatment of Tea Party groups.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, a California Republican, then did something we’ve never really seen before: he abruptly¬†adjourned the hearing without allowing any other member of the committee to speak.¬†

Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland immediately took Issa to task for shutting things down before he could make a statement.
