Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) apparently tried to sit in on Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal's closed-door testimony before the House Select Committee on Benghazi, but was "escorted out" by Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), The Hill reported.
Blumenthal was set to testify in a closed-door session about emails he exchanged with then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the wake of the attacks.
Issa led much of the probe into the 2012 Benghazi attacks while serving as the chair of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee before Gowdy's select committee was named.
The Hill's Martin Matishak chronicled the encounter between Gowdy and Issa, who "stormed off in a huff" after he was sent on his way.

Issa stormed off in a huff after Gowdy escorted him out. Slammed an empty soda can into the nearest trash can. With authority, as they say.— Martin Matishak (@martinmatishak) June 16, 2015
