    You can accept that or continue to prattle on with last years debunked talking points, its up to youn

    Here's what you can say about Darryl Issa.

    His perseverance with the Obama administrations and the IRSs continued obstruction is building one hell of a legacy for this President and the Democrat party.

    You don't counter a empty political motivated " witch hunt " with lies, 5th amendment pleas and the destruction of evidence.

    You can complain all you want. What you don't have is evidence.

    Do you have a link for that? Thank you.

    It's fun to watch those who support the current administration try to spin this. The fact is i f the court allowed the case to go forward they clearly saw enough evidence to think it has merit. The opinions of a handful of people on an internet forum doesn't matter, and "the dog ate my email" is not going to cut it in court.

But that's not why those groups were targeted.

    BTW, the IRS targeted other groups, in addition to those.
    That is one thing I haven't seen any conservative consider here. What if those groups were targeted because they were attempting to circumvent American tax law?

    I don't doubt that was the IRS's motivation..... the ****ty part comes about due to discriminatory targeting.

    this whole ordeal was initiated by Democratic congresscritters butthurt over Citizens United . they implored the IRS to get the ball rolling ( which is completely understandable, considering their perspective on CU ...and i don't mind such .
    oversight one damned bit)
    I'm not sure who decided to go after conservative groups primarily, but it was an improper decision... a decision that a couple of congresscritters( Orrin Hatch and John Kyl ) were concerned about before the ball got rolling
    these 2 guys insisted that Treasury provide an IG to ensure impartiality.... and lo and behold, we find out that this idea to provide oversight was a good idea, as it uncovered discrimination and improper criteria for targeting groups.

    the good news in all of this is that Democratic and Republican leaders, alike, have come together to condemn such behavior.....hopefully the rank and file follows suit, but that doesn't seem likely..... too many people still support and/or defend the IRS's behavior on the matter.

    They are defending Obama, no matter what happens on his watch. The IRS targeting conservative groups is all OK with the Obama supporters and/or defenders.

    They still need to do it in an even handed way.

    Lol !

    Lois Lerner ADMITTED in 2012 that these Conservative groups were targeted.

    Anyway, you're still not getting it.

    The Obama administration chose to perpetuate this scandal and legitimize these charges rather than be open and honest.

    They made the decision that perception was better than proof and they made that decision after Lerner ADMITTED to the targeting of Conservative groups in 2012.

    I guess they thought Americans would forget that.

    For anyone who's not a blind follower of the Obama administration the perception is growing that this White House was involved in the unprecedented targeting of innocent Americans based on their Political views.

    Thats because AGAIN, there is no stupidier strategy for countering " politically motivated witch hunts " than with obstruction and lies and the destruction of evidence.

    Obama's trying to do the impossible. He's trying to shut down a politically motivated investigation by perpetuating it and lending credibility to the charges leveled against his administration.

    Only left wing Obama sycophants actually believe his administration is innocent, and thats fine with me.

    They have serious some credibility issues too and won't be the people who get to define his legacy.

    She was instructed to 'admit' it. It was a 'staged' admission. It is also a fact that other groups, that were not conservative, but were progressive were also targeted.
