The Congressional Black Caucus might stage a walkout during the contempt vote of Attorney General Eric Holder, according to Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), who was on MSNBC’s The Ed Show last night.
Host Ed Schultz tried to portray Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) as someone who is on a witch hunt, who even went out of his way to use the tired accusation of racism on the part of Republicans. Schultz tried to get Cummings to say it was about race.
Cummings did not take the bait, but he did not say anything to contrary, suggesting Schultz’s claims are true.
“I’m not going to say that. I leave that to other people to make the determination,” said Cummings.
