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.

Trump inherits Obama boom
On the campaign trail, Donald Trump repeatedly described the U.S. economy as a hollowed-out disaster of high unemployment and stagnant growth.
But the latest numbers show the president-elect will in fact inherit a fairly robust economy with the lowest jobless rate in nearly a decade, record home and stock prices and a healthy growth rate.
It’s a radically different position from the one President-elect Barack Obama found himself in 2008 with markets crashing, the financial crisis spinning out of control and joblessness headed toward 10 percent.
Trump instead will take office with an economy near full employment and wages and spending rising. The economy is in such strong shape that the Federal Reserve is likely to raise interest rates again later this month to try and cool things off.
DEMOCRATS ARE HARASSING 538 MEMBERS OF ELECTORAL COLLEGE AFTER POLITICO PUBLISHED COMPLETE LIST…HOW COME ONLY DEMOCRATS DO THIS KIND OF STUFF?
- “A lot of ’em use bad, rough language,” said Layne Bangerter, one of the four electors. “Nothing I feel intimidated over. But we’re watching it very closely. They’ve got our home phone numbers, our cell numbers, our emails, our Facebook. We’re just getting an orchestrated barrage from the left.”
After POLITICO published a list of Electors last week, Hillary Clinton supporters did not waste time gathering information, making spreadsheets and hunting down the 538 members of Electoral College, using twitter to recruit thugs to harass the electors via facebook , emails and nasty phone calls using foul language, insults and intimidation. The electors will ratify the results of the presidential election on December 19.
Idaho’s four presidential electors say they have been getting harassing phone calls, emails and Facebook messages urging them to become “faithless electors” and not cast their votes for Donald Trump in the electoral college.
“A lot of ’em use bad, rough language,” said Layne Bangerter, one of the four electors. “Nothing I feel intimidated over. But we’re watching it very closely. They’ve got our home phone numbers, our cell numbers, our emails, our Facebook. We’re just getting an orchestrated barrage from the left.”
“They’re not even from this state – it’s Oregon, New York, California, Massachusetts, a lot of these is where I’m getting messages from,” she said.
Bangerter, who worked for U.S. Sen. Mike Crapo for more than a decade, said he’s received around 40 messages on Facebook alone. “They attack my religion, they attack my politics, they tell me that I must be a terrible father, I must be a terrible American, they use foul language – every swear word,” he said. “They’re just trying to steal this thing. They won’t be able to do it, but they’re trying.”
Bangerter said the messages have included automated robo-calls.
