    She has already spoken to her alleged innocence thereby legally nullifying her fifth amendment rights. Are you against ferreting out criminal activities in government according to political leanings? You should be outraged by these IRS activities or are you thinking completely short term?

    I am all in favor of finding the truth, but these hearings are a complete farce of what is supposed to be a oversight Commitee.

    No I don't think the Commitee is interested in finding the truth.
