Speaking to TPM on Thursday, Issa expressed doubt that anyone could confuse his voice with Bardella's.
"How much have you talked to Kurt? Ever?" he said. "Do you see any similarity in our voices?"
Issa said he had no reason to believe Bardella's [sic] acted deliberately.
"The fact is Kurt made on the record commitments for a plethora of issues every day," he said. "It's not uncommon for him to make those, he did it, and when we had hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of on the record [conversations], what purpose would it serve for him to deliberately impersonate me? I believe Howard misunderstood, but I don't see a conflict between his misunderstanding and Kurt making statements on behalf of the Congressman every day and sooner or later someone not fully paying attention to who he was talking to."
Not paying attention is an interesting euphamism.
