    So your position is that this low to mid-level guy is telling the whole story while his supervisors and the IG were all just making up stuff?

    And with regard to your other comment....I'm talking about government. Right now this is the Obama administration's baby but wrong is wrong no matter who is doing it.

    I find it fascinating that you seem to consider all other Republicans to be liars but this one guy who says something you like is OK.

    Re: IRS targeting linked to Republican staffer

    why can't obama say exactly when he learned what his cos and white house counsel knew, that his irs was engaged (according to the irs and doj) in discriminatory practices against the president's most pointed political opponents?

    ron fournier, longtime associated press dc bureau chief, editor of the elite natl journal and regular msnbc contributor:

    At last Thursday's press conference, Obama chose his words about the IRS scandal very carefully. "I can assure you that I certainly did not know anything about the IG report before the IG report had been leaked through the press." Even though he was asked about the overall malfeasance, he specifically said he didn't know about the report. That parsing alone raises questions about the level of candor coming from the White House.
    Is The White House Obscuring the Truth? - NationalJournal.com

    roger simon's professional leftists and journolisters, proud print partners of msnbc in the morning:

    Though the White House counsel’s office was informed of the IRS probe in late April, Obama has insisted that he only learned about the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups through media reports last Friday. But he wouldn’t say definitively that the White House was unaware of the targeting before then.

    cnn and nbc urge obama to come clean

    has he? will he?

    stay tuned

    It's unfortunate that the left needs a Republican in office before they can don their ceremonial garb's of accountabillity.

    You guys have one guy, who's political affiliation cannot be proved, who sent back ( To Washington) one case, and now Issa is lying ?

    There are letters signed by Lois Lerner ( who took the Fifth under questioning ). IRS agents in Cinci have told NBC that there was a task force in Washington for targeting the Conservative groups, that final decisions were made in Washington.

    Conservative groups were sent lettersbfrom the IRS with Treasury Dept return addresses on them.

    Cinci IRS agents have stated that the orders came from " Management " in Washington, not some mid-level employee who's a " Conservative Republican."

    Dude, the self-described conservative republican has already explained where the idea to investigate the applications of Tea Party groups originated, and it has nothing to do with Obama, or anyone in the White House.

    And as far as republicans, or anyone else, being liars - When they say something that makes them look bad, and absolves their enemies of wrongdoing, I assume they're telling the truth.

    How desperate are you people to first take Elijah Cummings word for anything and second, to ignore all of the other evidence that contradicts the IRS's initial story ?

    Why didn't Lois Lerner just say this was a mid-level Republican doing this instead of lying and then taking the Fifth ?

    It's under penalty of perjury. Are you saying a conservative republican is risking jail to protect Obama?

    That's what happens to a brain on Obamaphobia.

    He testified under penalty of perjury. And it's easy to prove party affiliations. It's as simple as asking coworkers if the guy ever talked about them.

    So now the tea bagger position is the guy is risking jail to protect Obama?

    BWHHAHHAHAHAH! Oh the conservative brain on Obamaphobia.

    But his account contradicts the reality and other accounts that say there was a task force in Washington.

    Sorry, you guys are putting a of your hopes on one guy who returned one case to Washington.

    Who's political affiliation cannot be proven. It cant be proven he wasn't '' visited " prior to being deposed.

    Sorry, if that story had any credibillity then why didm't Lerner lead with it instead of lying about "rogue agents" ?
