Darrell Issa Throws A Tantrum After Getting Kicked Out Of Benghazi Deposition


Darrell Issa threw a tantrum today after he was escorted out of the room for trying to crash a closed-door deposition before the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

The Hill reported:

Former House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) tried to crash former Hillary Clinton adviser Sidney Blumenthal’s deposition before the House Select Committee on Benghazi on Tuesday.

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.

Rep. Issa tried to crash the deposition that he was not invited to because he is still bitter about John Boehner kicking him off the Benghazi investigation. Issa responded to Boehner’s decision to no put him on the House Select Committee investigating Benghazi by trying to sabotage the investigation last year. In May of 2014, Issa went to the media and discussed a confidential State Department memo that debunked a big piece of the House Republican Benghazi conspiracy theory.

At the time, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) explained why Issa keeps trying to muscle in on the Select Committee, “I think the Speaker has lost control of Issa. Mr. Issa’s trying to interject himself into the Select Committee’s business. Keep in mind, Wolf, when the Select Committee was formed what the Speaker said was everything comes under the Select Committee. Now, here we have Mr. Issa trying to bring the Secretary in, and the Secretary is saying, you know, I’m going to come, but I’m just going to come one time. This is it. By the way, Wolf, it undermines the Select Committee. It undermines them. This is the very thing they were worried about.”

Issa is completely out of control. He is crashing depositions and meetings that he has no right to be in. Things have gotten so bad that his fellow Republicans are removing the Benghazi crasher. Darrell Issa is still bitter and angry that Boehner took Benghazi away from him. Rep. Issa used Benghazi to boost his own fame and fundraising.

Darrell Issa is throwing a fit because he has had his favorite toy taken away, and Republicans are letting him crash their Benghazi party.

  1. I will give $1,000,000 to anyone to can identify a Reichwinger who acts older than a 24-month child…

  2. Considering his ‘loose cannon’ actions against the U.S. Postal Service this shouldn’t come as any surprise.

  3. Oh how I wish someone had gotten a picture of his face. Priceless.

    I thought you had to be a certain age in order to serve in Congress. Did that recently change?

  4. Physical age, not mental age…or anyone GOP would still be in grade school sucking their thumbs and teasing girls.

  5. One can hope that he infuriates his caucus to the point where they call on the Ethics Committee to investigate him and move to expel him from the Congress. This of course will never happen. It would require a degree of patriotism to do so and there is no love of country or patriotism on the republican party.

  6. What the hell is his (and Republican’s) BENGHAZI obsession? It’s Benghazi 24/7 and no sign of this thingy ever letting up. And I can bet that when Hillary is President it WILL FLARE UP hotter than it is now. Unless, unless….Democrats regain control of the House and the Senate; then this Benghazi madness will disappear.

  7. Whats the little rat going to do, burn the place down? that is after he removes all his valuables from his desk and makes sure his insurance is up to date?

  8. While 4 dead Americans is tragic, and I really am in sorrow for them… What about the LIES of your party Darrell. 4,500 DEAD for nothing. I think that 4 dead PALES in comparison to 4,500…

  9. Trey Gowdy. Now where is my money? Then find me a Dem who is not hell bent on taking our guns, or destroying our country

  10. I hope Hillary Clinton is elected president.

    And I hope her first act on moving back into the White House is to acquire a nice little puppy and name it Benghazi.

  11. This is my rifle
    This is my gun
    This one’s for fighting
    This one’s for fun–

    Don’t worry. No one is planning to take your *gun* away.

  12. It is dead, Kim. What they’re doing to that horse now is considered beastiality at this point.

    Which means most, if not all of the Republicans, would be arrested for indecent acts against a dead horse.

  13. Mark Twain must have been thinking of the current GOP when he wrote:

    “ANGER/HATRED does more harm to the vessel in which it’s stored…
    Than to anything on which it’s poured”

    The GOP have seriously ‘harmed’ themselves.
    That’s why we must send-out Positives!

    H> is doing just that painting her Vision for a brighter/better America.

    On Paid Parental Leave…Look at the US vs. the world:

    Be Positive!

  14. That’s easy. All of them. Nobody is trying to take anyone’s guns away and what would be the purpose of “destroying the country?” Y’all been making this same speech for 80 years. Fire the NRA and get some new speech writers.

  15. This guy I a real nutcase. Instead of throwing him out of the meeting, they should have thrown him out of the building. And told him not to come back. Damn idiot!

  16. I hate to break it to you Midge; but your warning to the Republicans could very well be counterproductive.

  17. I am a Democrat, a liberal, and educated person who is not a gun owner and never will be. Do I/we want to take your guns? NO. We just want to keep guns out of the hands of sex offenders, people with restraining orders, people who are mentally ill … etc. Do you fit one or more of those categories? If not, let me know if your gun ownership is in danger. I am way more afraid of having my children go to someone’s home where guns are available because there are too many jerks who do not take appropriate precautions than I am of having someone try to get into my home to harm me. You set up a straw man so you can whine and carry on and be paranoid.

  18. Issa is so bitter from spending 2 years trying to get something on Hillary and not succeeding. He just can’t stand the truth, she is innocent.

  19. Oh, you’ve figured out the evil plot, Black Six. Obama’s going to take your guns away by…not taking your guns away. Devious, ain’t he?

    Is there any rightwinger on this planet who isn’t a moron?

  20. I remember that little ditty from basic training. Our drill sergeants told us: Never call your weapon a gun.

  21. So you are good with Psychopaths and the mentally ill being able to secure a fire arm? Of course you could be a psychopath or a mentally ill person and for that I am sorry to hear you are so ill. There are doctors that can treat your malady if you want to get well. I hear that there are also some drugs that help stabilize the brain synapses that you might want to check into.

    No one is taking your guns away from you – all we ask is that you obtain a license to carry that shows that 1. You understand your responsibilities as a fire arms owner. 2. That you know how to properly store and use said fire arms. & 3. That you confirm you are mentally stable (note that it does not take away the right to own a fire arm if you have a mental illness – only that you say you are stable) & know about the 2nd amendment to own a fire arm. The 4th should be “not use the fire arm to terrorize your neighbors, threaten or shoot people who disagree with you.”

  22. FYI – the Second Amendment secures your right to own a fire arm.

    “Amendment II. A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

    Congress would have to write, submit, debate & vote on the bill in both the House & the Senate to change the 2nd amendment & finally signed by the President to go into law. Barring the the President vetoes said amendment -the bill is sent back to the U.S. House of Representatives, along with the President’s reasons for the veto. If the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate still believe the bill should become a law, they can hold another vote on the bill. If 2/3s of the Representatives and Senators support the bill, the President’s veto is overridden and the bill becomes a law.

  23. Issa is a criminal. His insurance company refused to pay off his claim after his office was torched (arson. He tried to claim computers were destroyed, but he had removed them days before the VERY suspicious fire. He should be doing prison time for insurance fraud and arson.

    Oh how I wish someone had gotten a picture of his face. Priceless.


    I wish he would have crushed that soda can on his forehead….now THAT would be priceless.

    This? …a tempest in a sippy cup.

  25. gun control laws don’t “take” any thing from anyone and no dem is trying to destroy the country that’s just idiot blathery the people that yell what you think at you from the radio say because the people that own the don;t get their way or the president has too much melanin or next time a vagina.

  26. People who worry about their guns being taken are the ones who SHOULD have their guns taken! And besides the ONLY people who REALLY need guns are POLICE, Deputies, and Security personnel. No IF’s ands or but’s! And as for the people destroying this nation look in the mirror Jerk!

  27. Kindof.

    Smeagol did manage to show some small bit of humanity (hobbity?) every now and again.

    Issa? Not so much.

  28. …throw him OUTTA the building…throw him OFF the Building…anybody see that big flucking scaffold???
    …spark any ideas???[wink]

  29. As just another anti-American Republican, Issa has been trying to usurp the U.S. Constitution by trying to destroy the U.S. Post Office in favor of corporations like UPS and FedEx.

    Not happening.

    “In June 1788, the ninth state ratified the Constitution, which gave Congress the power “To establish Post Offices and post Roads” in Article I, Section 8 . The Act of May 8, 1794 (1 Stat. 354), continued the Post Office indefinitely.”

    Republicans and their clueless followers scream patriotism and the U.S. Constitution, but they are neither patriots nor do they have any respect for the Constitution in word and deed – except to enrich the NRA and deadly weapon manufacturers.

  30. How exactly are we supposed to disprove something you have yet to provide credible evidence exists outside your own head? This is the United States of America not “‘Murica *pew* *pew*” as the low-information Republican voters would define it.

  31. Hmm. You describe what is required for passing a law. Modifying the constitution is a lot more involved, including that the amendment be ratified by some majority of states. It’s not that simple.

  32. NO ONE wants anything from you except for you to go troll somewhere else. This site is for the intelligent, not for the likes of you.

  33. Can you name one person whose guns were taken? Of course you can’t.

    In what way have dems destroyed our country? Compared to 8 years ago, we are better off in almost any way you choose. Stock market up 250%. Housing prices have rebounded. Auto industry is back. bin Laden dead. International prestige is way up. Health insurance coverage is way up and people who have it love it. Millions of jobs created. Obama has been good for this country, there is no denying it. But we could be so much better off if the right would face reality and put their love of country over their hatred for the President. The extreme right is what is wrong with this country. And that is undeniable.
