Summary
As Chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Issa led a years-long fight to uncover what was really happening in the Obama Administration and Hillary Clinton's State Department, while taking on a mainstream media and establishment Beltway culture he quickly found out weren't always interested in the truth. Through it all, he has sought to remind everyone in government they are still subject to the rule of law and accountable to the American people. This is the inside account of what it took to get the truth and what it will take for our democracy to endure
