Congressman Darrell Issa, R-CA., reportedly gave a reporter the middle finger on Tuesday after she asked him to comment on the recent news regarding President Trump allegedly asked the former FBI director James Comey to drop the agency’s investigation into former national security adviser Mike Flynn.
“I just asked @DarrellIssa abt the Comey news and he flicked me off – literally gave me the middle finger—and kept walking. Said nothing,” Politico reporter Rachael Bade tweeted Tuesday evening.
Later Tuesday evening, Issa responded to Bade’s tweets by denying the incident and said there must have been a misunderstanding.
“I respect @Rachealmbade and worked with her for years. I know she must have seen or heard something to believe this happened, but it didn’t,” Issa Tweeted.
