They are monitoring YOU and all American citizens.

See the difference.

(I guess you're OK with it either way.)

Since they can't keep up with many of the people here illegally, I guess they just decided to monitor everyone.
They are monitoring ME?

Remember Jack Ryan? Funny how that works out.

Is that the IL Republican whose divorce papers were made public? I wasn't into politics as much back then, but I recall the name.

Yeah, running against Obama. Had the lead, then suddenly his sealed divorce papers were made public.

I just did some quick reading on it and it's suspicious. However, I wonder what influence, if any, an IL Democrat would have over a seemingly small time judge in California.

In any event, I still stand by my first comment that political leaks happen on all sides....it's not unique to D's or R's. It's the nature of the game.

Breaking: Full House committee transcripts shed new light on genesis of IRS targeting

Quote:
Democrats on the House Oversight Committee have just released a full transcript of testimony from a key witness in the investigation of IRS targeting of conservatives - and it appears to confirm that the initial targeting did originate with a low-level employee in the Cincinnati office.

It also shows a key witness and IRS screening manager - a self described conservative Republican - denying any communication with the White House or senior IRS officials about the targeting...
Seems like the GOP scandal mongering is again coming up pretty thin on actual fact and evidence of real scandal. One can only fan the flames for so long if there's but scant kindling to fan. Eventually the GOP may well end up with only a face full of smoke of their own making and their credibility charred.
