I've been wondering about this....

Cummings spent the past week battling committee Chairman Darrell Issa, accusing the California Republican of cherry picking bits and pieces of transcripts for release to support his argument.
Cummings is threatening to release the transcripts of other interviews conducted by the committee. He’s especially eager to make public an interview with a self-identified conservative IRS manager in Cincinnati who said employees there began scrutinizing tea party tax-exempt applications.
Issa has warned Cummings that a broad release of interview transcripts has the potential to hobble the committee’s probe, but Cummings contends that it’s “more reckless to leak cherry-picked excerpts that omit key details and hide the full truth.”
The transcripts — and the fact that they were chosen for release — is a clear sign that congressional staffers are turning their sights to Paz.
