SHARE WATCH: Cummings says he was just trying to help

A day after Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings lashed out during an IRS hearing with the House Oversight Committee, Cummings went on MSNBC to say he was only trying to help.

I was trying to actually help the chairman, Cummings, who is ranking member of the committee said on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. What I was trying to do was to get to allow the attorney to at least provide us with a proffer, that is, to tell us what his clients would have said if she were to testify, he explained.

Even after Wednesday’s incident, Cummings said he has a “pretty good relationship” with Darrell Issa, the chairman of the committee.
