    I wasn't aware the IRS leaks was the problem Rep. Issa was investigating. I thought he was looking into the IRS purposely scrutinizing/delaying applications for Conservative non-profit groups. Which one is it?

    Obviously there is more to investigate.

    Does it have to be one if the problem is corruption throughout the IRS? The American people will likely want to know if this very powerful agency is doing any wrong.

    In short, "let's turn the IRS upside, down and see what shakes out." If you go fishing for trouble, you'll liable to find it sooner or later....even if it's trouble of your own creation or imagination.

    I'm not saying there weren't any questionable activity that took place within the IRS. Clearly, there was. But you investigate what you DO know to be wrong-doing and, if necessary, dove-tail onto whatever else you find in the normal investigative process. But you DON'T go creating an investigation from an investigation which is the true definition of "looking for problems where there aren't any".

    That's right. The IRS serve the American people. The People have a right to know the IRS is conducting its business properly.

    No one except you said "let's turn the IRS upside, down and see what shakes out." If you are going make things up you should at least have the dignity of Lois Lerner and plead the Fifth instead.

    Again, you are fabricating quotes from your imagination. While you're in such a creative mood, why not imagine a quotation from Lois Lerner as to why she pled the Fifth?

    But apparently only on a 'need to know' basis.
