Congressional tensions have escalated as members engaged in name-calling, alleged physical altercations, and heated verbal exchanges.
This included Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s failed attempt to impeach Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, ultimately leading to conflict with Rep. Darrell Issa.
“Marjorie Taylor Greene is a hard-working member of Congress, but I believe she lacks the maturity and the experience to understand what she was asking for,” Rep. Darrell Issa said. (Trending: Photos Released Of Cocaine Found In White House)

Additionally, Rep. Tim Burchett accused Rep. Kevin McCarthy of elbowing him, while Sen. Markwayne Mullin engaged in a heated exchange with a witness during Senate hearings.
“I chased after him,” Burchett recalled.
“As I’ve stated many times, he’s a bully with $17 million and a security detail. He’s the type of guy who when you’re a kid would throw a rock over the fence and run home and hide behind his momma’s skirt.”
News — Rep. Tim Burchett accuses Kevin McCarthy of a “sucker punch” to the kidneys and describes heated scene as he chased the former speaker down the hallway.

“From behind, that kind of stuff, that’s not the way we handle things in East Tennessee.”
He continued, “As he always does, he just denies it or blames somebody else.”
“I didn’t shove or elbow him. It’s a tight hallway,” McCarthy argued.

Burchett shot back, saying, “There’s 435 Congressmen, I was one of the eight who voted against him. That hallway, there’s plenty of room. you can walk four side by side. He chose to do what he did.”
“It’ll end right here; it’ll Just be a little asterisk on his storied career.”
Sean O’Brien of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters called Sen. Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) a “clown,” and a “fraud,” who O’Brien claims “pretends to be self-made,” which lead to Mullin calling him out in a hearing.
“Quite the tough guy act in these Senate hearings,” O’Brien said. “You know where to find me, any place, any time, cowboy.”
“Sir, this is a time, this is a place. You wanna run your mouth, we can be two consenting adults, we can finish it here,” Mullin said, standing up.
The incidents reflect a high level of animosity and discord currently reverberating throughout Congress.
Darrell Issa is right, I am a hardworking member of Congress who puts the American people first.
But we all know what Darrell Issa lacks…
