Darrell Issa escorted from Sidney Blumenthal’s deposition by chairman Trey Gowdy
It was only a minor skirmish as far as congressional turf wars go but it underlines the difficulties of Trey Gowdy's job a Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi. Gowdy has gone to great pains to be even handed in his treatment of partisans, a tricky proposition in a House of inflated egos.

The two exchanged hushed and probably heated words outside the hearing room before Issa stormed off. You may view a brief video of the dust up here.
