Darrell Issa Furious After Dem Releases IRS Transcript That Exposes His Investigation

http://www.seattlepi.com/technology/...RS-4608074.php

Quote:
Brett LoGiurato, provided by
Published 1:34 pm, Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Democrats have posted the key portion of the transcript here, in which the manager says he initially was made aware of a case involving a Tea Party group when an agent "asked for guidance." He agreed with the agent that there "wasn't enough information" to determine whether the group should have a tax-exempt status, and said he elevated the issue to his "area manager."

The manager also said an official in the exempt organizations division in Washington was "pleased with the decision to elevate this case," but suggested there wasn't a political role in the targeting.

"I do not believe that the screening of these cases had anything to do other than consistency and identifying issues that needed to have further development," the manager said.

He also told the Oversight Committee that he believed no one from the White House was involved in the IRS' screening of Tea Party groups.

From Page 141 of the transcripts:



The release of the transcripts came after two weeks of back-and-forth squabbling between Cummings and Oversight Committee Chair Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), who Cummings accused of selectively releasing portions of the transcripts.

Cummings called on Issa to release the entire transcripts, which Issa said would harm the investigation. Cummings asked him for specific reasons, and demanded he respond by Monday. When Issa didn't respond, Cummings released the entirety of the transcripts.

Issa's office also did not respond to requests from multiple media outlets — including this one — that asked whether he would eventually release full transcripts.

"I believe releasing this transcript serves the best interest of Congress and the American people by ensuring that there is an accurate and fair picture of the management challenges facing the IRS and that recommendations for legislative reform are appropriately crafted to address the specific problems identified as a result of our oversight efforts," Cummings said in a statement along with the release of the transcripts.

Issa immediately decried the release of the transcripts, saying he was "deeply disappointed" at Cummings' decision. He said their release would encourage IRS officials to "navigate investigative interviews" with Congress.

"After unsuccessfully trying to convince the American people that IRS officials in Washington did not play a role in inappropriate scrutiny of Tea Party groups and declaring on national television that the case of IRS targeting was ‘solved’ and Congress should ‘move on,’ this looks like flailing," Issa said. "Americans who think Congress should investigate IRS misconduct should be outraged by Mr. Cummings’ efforts to obstruct needed oversight."

Issa created a witch hunt when he should've been creating jobs.

The (incredibly politically biased) IRS voluntarily started this scandal themselves, don't distort reality kid. Also, government doesn't create jobs.

That very broad statement is incorrect.

Hey let's criticize Issa for releasing snippets of testimony...by releasing snippets of testimony

good grief

And no, government doesn't create jobs (outside of government). No government can wave a magic wand and make the public sector come alive, unless that magic wand reduces government

No magic wand required, but they do create jobs. They have a heavy hand in economic policy. Governments also build successful institutions, and infrastructure as well as ensure property rights which are important to economic development. Believing that governments don't create jobs is akin to believing in Cinderella. All fairy tales.

The last thing you want is a crop of retards (aka politicians) tinkering with an organic system like an economy trying to coax an outcome. It ALWAYS blows up in their face.

What do democrats have to do with your original statement regarding governments don't create jobs?

That's what the Tea Party/GOP ran on during the 2010 midterms.

No I don't. You didn't say democrats do not create jobs. You implied government (the entity) doesn't create jobs. That claim is inherently inaccurate. Perhaps if you implied strictly the democrats you should state that and from that point there may exist an argument to your claim. Regardless if appeared the claim is typically AoG. There is always an attempt at the misdirection and trying to steer the topic to something else. Continue on.
