Here’s how Betsy Rothstein of the Daily Caller described what happened:
Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), ranking member of the House Oversight Committee, left an important hearing Tuesday afternoon concerning the White House Secret Service for a media hit on MNSBC.
“If you want to make improvement in any relationship, there must be trust,” Cummings told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on her show at noon. “I am very concerned with Julia Pierson.”
Julia Pierson is the director of the Secret Service. Cummings continued, “I’m trying to listen very carefully, but I must tell you, my trust is eroding.”
Listening? How about heading back to the hearing to actually listen to what they’re saying?
It’s really no surprise Cummings would pull a stunt like this.
