Waters' ability to comprehend the law and parliamentary procedure has been called out in the past especially when she got in an argument with Treasury Secretary Mnuchin during a hearing when he wanted to leave to meet with a foreign dignitary.
Tensions between House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters, D-Calif., and ranking member Rep. Patrick McHenry, R.-N.C., reportedly overflowed Thursday during a hearing with bank regulators.
Waters abruptly ended the nearly three-and-a-half hour session with little warning, Republicans complained, while McHenry and at least one Democrat still wanted to ask questions, Politico reported.
"This is a travesty the way you've handled this," McHenry shot back at Waters after she refused his attempt for a parliamentary inquiry.
McHenry and other Republicans say Waters' behavior is part of a pattern, although the two have expressed their hopes of bipartisanship on several issues, including the reauthorization of the National Flood Insurance Program, according to Politico.
