Apologies

After a new cycle dominated by Issa's treatment of Cummings that also threatened to derail his IRS investigation, the controversial California lawmaker issued an apology. “This evening, Chairman Issa telephoned me and apologized for his conduct, and I accepted his apology,” Cummings said in a statement, adding that his “sincere hope is that as we move forward, we will respect the opinions of all members of the committee" and "seek resolution rather than unnecessary conflict.”
