    Yes, over and over and over, not to mention their donor list we're released, illegally.


    I love it. I wonder if Holder is going to set up a Hot Line ?

    Sure I did. The IRS operation was a GOP operation run by the GOP and then lied about.

    It's coming out. Issa is in trouble and George may wind up with contempt of Congress charges, if not obstruction of justice.

    But it's a blast to watch you guys spin.

    LMAO Are you still using this asinine line? There is nothing even remotely similar with Nixon. With Nixon there was the illegal break in of the Watergate hotel, with the IRS nothing as yet has been found illegal.

    Actually, there have been illegal activities. Holder has just refused to go after them.

    In watching these hearings my respect for Russell George just keeps growing. This guy is getting hammered by partisan hacks on this committee and he has not only maintained his composure but keeps redirecting to the facts and circumstances. He has showed absolutely no indication of partisanship or unprofessional behavior. If we had an entire government made up of people like this we'd be head and shoulders above where we are now.

    they caught the guys who did the break in so according to your logic case closed no need for the Water Gate investigation. FYI they never tied Nixon directly to the break in they got him for lying about knowledge after the fact and covering that lie up

    To some, the existence of a investigation alone designates partison hackery.

    I know the story fairly well, I voted for him. You seem to want to put words in my mouth, I never said the case was closed, I merely said it was nothing like Watergate.
