Darrell Issa Refuses To Release ‘Evidence’ That Obama Conspired With IRS To Target TP
What a slime ball Darrell Issa is, he blames Obama for the targeting of the Tea Party.
When he was on CNN's State of the Union show Sunday June 2, he promised the host Candy Crowley he would produce the evidence, now he is backing away. On Sunday June 9, Rep. Elijah Cummings, the senior Democrat in the Committee said that if Issa didn't produce the evidence, he will. That should make this weekend interesting.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) is refusing to release transcripts of interviews with Internal Revenue Service (IRS) agents that allegedly prove how political officials in the Obama administration directed the IRS to target conservative groups applying for 501 (c)(4) status.
The California congressman, whose committee is conducting an investigation into the agency’s behavior, provided CNN excerpts of interviews with IRS agents on June 2 and assured host Candy Crowley that “the whole transcript will be put out.” The portion purported to show an IRS official conceding that “directions” for to treat Tea Party groups “emanated from Washington,” though Issa himself conceded that that excerpt was not definitive.
But in a letter to the top Democrat on the Committee, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), Issa appeared to back away from his pledge, arguing that releasing the transcripts would “needlessly jeopardize the integrity of the investigation and hamper the Committee’s ability to get to the truth.” Experts, he contested, are useful and “serve to provide important updates to the public” and “empower other witnesses to become whistleblowers.”

Issa is a fraud and a clown. No wonder conservatives love him.
Did I mention he's also a car thief -- a true conservative hero.
