Given the increased level of attacks on Rep. Issa and the IRS investigation he must be making some progress.

I'm puzzled. Does the chairman have the right to call on members, or do they have the right to speak whenever they want to? Did Rep. Issa do anything wrong? (I know he apologized, but that might be just political pressure from the Black Caucus.)

Does the chair of a committee have the right to abridge the speech of the minority? Do members of the committee, other than the chair, have the right to question witnesses?
