Top IRS officials in Washington, D.C. planned and oversaw the agencys improper targeting of conservative groups, according to the 72-year old retiring IRS lawyer who will testify Thursday before the House Oversight Committee.
Retiring IRS lawyer Carter C. Hull implicated the IRS Chief Counsels office, headed by Obama appointee William J.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Drip, drip drip....soon a torrent.
Can’t be Lerner - she did nothing wrong. Said so herself!
Will this get BO and the Mooch impeached?? I hope so.
Holy Pete I hope this Whistle blower isn’t driving a Mercedes!
Who would leak that ahead of his testimony? Deplorable! The whole festing putrid city of DC.
Until I see someone in jail I will continue to believe the GOP will let this get swept under the rug like every thing else. For crying out load no one is in jail for fast and furious yet and people died. A lot of people died.
Obama will be granting a lot of pardons.
Of course the instructions to break the law came from Obama the queen b*tch Valerie Jarrett.
How is bouncing Bob Beckel going to spin this one?
the GOP will let this get swept under the rug like every thing else.
The space under the rug is a hill by now!

ISSA: Oversight Hearing Will Examine Role of IRS Chief Council in Targeting
No doubt ALL major networks will be broadcasting his testimony tomorrow! /s
Meanwhile, Issa, stunning everybody, already gave Lerner a pass and she’ll never be back.
On CSpan tomorrow? I looked for it on their website and came up empty.
“Will this get BO and the Mooch impeached??”
Impeached by the House? Possibly.
Convicted by the Senate with Hasshole Reid in charge? Zero chance.
Probably was the intern.
Interns seem to cause a lot of damage and release things when they shouldn’t.
[ Darrell Issa ] == [ Larry Klayman ]
We have as much chance of getthing those two grifters impeached as we have of seeing the real Santa Clause.
