Issa to Cummings: 'Thanks for Giving IRS Officials a Roadmap to Navigate Future Investigative Interviews'
by Debra Heine 18 Jun 2013, 1:49 PM PDT

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) fired off the following statement regarding Ranking Member Elijah Cummings’ decision to post the full investigative interview transcripts of IRS employee John Shafer on the Internet.


    “I am deeply disappointed that Ranking Member Cummings has decided to broadly disseminate and post online a 205 page transcript that will serve as a roadmap for 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.  Americans who think Congress should investigate IRS misconduct should be outraged by Mr. Cummings’ efforts to obstruct needed oversight.

     “In the course of this fact based inquiry, Ranking Member Cummings has wrongly argued that questions about IRS conduct are somehow not legitimate.  His own previous release of excerpts from this very same transcript undermines his claims that the Committee is somehow trying to keep some specific revelation from public view.”

If anybody is politicizing the IRS investigation, it's the shoe-sized IQ'd Cummings. 

He and John Conyers and John Lewis are the equivalent of Congressional sideshow acts.

Throw some coins at 'em!!!


It's far easier to dupe people than to convince them they have been duped.
