Although House Majority Leader Eric Cantor has been mediating a dispute between two influential Republican committee chairmen over the Stop Online Piracy Act, the lawmakers seem to have conflicting opinions on where Cantor stands.
In discussing his conversation with Cantor, Issa said, “You understand that, and I serve on that committee, but when the chairman and ranking member are using all the assets for one direction, you have a problem in which there is no balance on Judiciary. There is no support from the loyal opposition. So that’s one of the reasons that I needed that assurance.”
