    A shame he wasn't prosecuted by the Federal government.

    Perhaps you're on to something but isn't the issue who knew about the activities of the IRS and didn't disclose them not who knew they were being investigated?

    Soon you'll want to tar and feather him. And then finish him off with Zeppelin's Hangman. Impeachment ends at the doors of the Senate.

    Suppose these groups needed investigating. Conservatives hate paying their taxes. Why do they hate their Country?

    If Issa knew about the IRS thing in July of 2012, long before it became known to the general public, why did he not act on this since this is such a scandal.

    Lemme just say that even if we were to begin the impeachment process, look at his senate. Not even worth the time fellas.

    To be fair, pretty much all of Congress knew that the IRS Inspector General was investigating concerns that Congressmen and Senators reported to him related to this issue. None of them had, in July 2012, any proof that anything systemic was actually happening, they just had anecdotal evidence from concerned constituents. It wasn't until about 10 to 12 days ago when an official of the IRS let the cat out of the bag when she realized the Inspector General was about to issue a scathing report against the IRS's actions that proof was ascertained and became public knowledge.

    So, again, the real issue is not who knew in July 2012 that the IRS Inspector General was investigating. The real issue is who in the administration knew in 2010 and 2011 that this was standard practice in the IRS and who actually initiated the process.

    The Senate belongs to the 50 states of the United States of America.
