Skip to comments.Gibbs: Issa charges against IRS ‘shameful,’ owes agency apology
Posted on 06/03/2013 8:12:15 AM PDT by Nachum
Former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs on Monday pushed back at House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issas (R-Calif.) claims that top officials from the IRSs Washington, D.C. office directed the targeting of conservative groups, calling the allegations unsubstantiated and shameful.
Republicans are on the verge of overplaying their hand publicly and the American people will quickly lose interest on their side in this, Gibbs said on MSNBCs Morning Joe. They want to see the IRS cleaned up, but they understand that Darrell Issa is doing nothing more than politicizing this event. To throw around the words liar and perjury as easily as he did is shameful.
Speaking on CNNs State of the Union on Sunday, Issa said his panel had conducted interview with IRS workers in the Cincinnati office that revealed they were being directly ordered from Washington.
This is a problem that was coordinated, in all likelihood, right out of Washington headquarters. We have subpoenaed documents that would support that, Issa said.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
The Previous Liar-in-Chief wants his old job back?
“I’m sorry IRS, but you need to bend over now.”
I want to see Gibbs convince the American people that the IRS are the ‘good’ guys. I really do.
gibbs is such a greaseball.
Speaking of apologies. The whole thing became known when the IRS apologized for doing it.
Obama is slime.
Gibbs is the mud beneath the Obamaslime.
And blithering idiot.
Back to Baghdad. Seems there is just no escape.
Apology....never!!! Gibbs, Obama, Carney, Holder, Pelosi, Reed, Clinton, etc. are all serial liars, from head-to-toe!!! America will never prosper, be free, have opportunity, again until they all are removed from office and public service. They do not deserve apologies, they deserve jail time....starting with Obama & Holder!!!
It is shameful ,bad Issa , they were only following Obama’s orders LOL
With a planted question to mis-direct the media and people on other equally important issues.
If there was nothing to worry about, the best thing for those on the Left to do is let Issa and others rant away. Gibbs’ “concern” for the reputation of the Right leads me to believe the worst is yet to come.
“Gibbs said on MSNBCs Morning Joe.
Bad news dude, nobody heard it! BWAHAHAHAHAHA
Can Gibbs explain this?
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) official who apologized for targeting conservative nonprofit groups for extra scrutiny is married to an attorney whose firm hosted a voter registration organizing event for the Obama presidential campaign, praised President Obamas policy work, and had one of its partners appointed by Obama to a key ambassadorship.
IRS Exempt Organizations Division director Lois G. Lerner, who has been described as apolitical in mainstream press coverage of the IRS scandal, is married to tax attorney Michael R. Miles, a partner at the law firm Sutherland Asbill & Brennan. The firm is based in Atlanta but has a number of offices including in Washington, D.C., where Miles works./
Hey, Gibbs! Put a sock in it!
Do you like being a tool for the regime? Does that make you feel good?
Wow, someone with no shame...calling something shameful.
Mother: "What are you doing??!? It's nearly dinner and you don't have permission to be stealing a cookie and cheating on your dinner!!!"
Child: "Mom, you are on the verge of overplaying your hand publicly. Dad and my brothers will quickly lose interest on your side in this. I want to see the Cookie Situation cleaned up, but let's understand that you are doing nothing more than politicizing this event. To throw around the words stealing and cheating as easily as you did is shameful."
