I live in Los Angeles. Our San Fernando Tea Party coordinator will be testifying BEFORE CONGRESS along with 5 or 6 others at 10 AM Eastern to 10 AM Eastern. CSPAN DOES NOT HAVE ANY SCHEDULE SHOWING THEY WILL BROADCAST. Please hit "Contact Us" and ask them to do that!
10 AM Eastern to 1 PM Eastern - sorry for the typo!
The MSM helped the coup d’etat against the American people.
The ENTIRE MSM is culpable, and many were PAID OFF.
In front of whom and for what purpose?
Probably of no importance - just more GOP hot air.
Give it to ‘em with both barrels!
they need to go back and bring this forward - remember this? Totally swept under the rug...
Nowis the time to go back and look at this...they got away with it 0 so why not keep right on with targeting
Obama must have told C-Span not to cover the testimony.
I don’t think this has anything to do with CSPAN choosing not to broadcast the hearing. According to the report here, the House Ways and Means Committee (not Issa’s oversight committee) will conduct interviews “behind closed doors.”:
This article also indicates Issa’s committee is involved:
I’m not sure where the “breaking news” about Tea Party people testifying comes from since the link is just to the CSPAN video library, which is almost completely blank when I just followed the link.
OK, this article at the link here indicates that on Monday the Treasury IG, Russell George and acting IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel will testify before the House Appropriations committee, Tuesday targeted organizations will testify before the House Ways and Means committee, and on Thursday Issas committee will have a hearing that should probably be called the Cupid Shuffle IRS Dance Routine hearing:
The dance routine video needs to go viral ASAP. The absolute ridiculousness might get the attention of some LIVs and provide a way to open their eyes to the bigger picture.
Interviews usually take place in private, off camera. Testimony, which usually follows interviews, is the activity that CSPAN covers usually.
“Interviews usually take place in private, off camera. Testimony, which usually follows interviews, is the activity that CSPAN covers usually.”
I did not know that. That clarifies some things for me.
To me it looks like they are bit by bit boxing in certain parts of the “chain of command.” I don’t think Lerner (for one) has any wiggle room left. The limited transcripts released the other day has the look of an attempt to herd in some of the middle level people, most likely for pointing fingers up the chain.
It is a useful technique to interview people off-camera but on record and get the information needed to take testimony with the public given a clear view.
I did hear Rep. Gowdy saying they were taking lengthy depositions to prepare for hearings.
Those depositions or interviews make it possible for the testimony to be very focused, direct and to the point. Plus, like any good lawyer, you don’t end up asking a question in testimony that you don’t already know the answer to. As you note, makes the “boxing in” very efficient for the little time allotted to each member for questions.
“Plus, like any good lawyer, you dont end up asking a question in testimony that you dont already know the answer to.”
I’ve been hearing this for some time now, and that makes me all the more curious about Rep. Jordan questioning Shulman on the White House visits. It gives me the impression that Jordan knows whom Shulman meet with and what was discussed. Even the democrat Connolley referred to Jordan’s questioning and reminded Shulman that he was under oath. It would be surprising to me if Jordan was just fishing.
I hope those dance routines go viral as well. I’ve heard them all morning on our local Rush radio station with some woman screaming her “dance” instructions!
Yeah! Step to the left, step to the left, now step on the right, step on the right . . .
Here is the House Committee’s announcement of the Testimony (on Tuesday):
Will do!!! I have hearings on right now. But I want to hear WE THE PEOPLE speak about the abuses.
