Assistant senior advisor to President Bill Clinton.
Richard soccer it's good to have you with yankees.
Let me start if -- -- -- here this is a White House that is now up front.
-- -- -- -- -- -- They are out front caught.
Using the IRS is a political weapon.
For which the -- director was kind enough to apologize.
This is an administration.
Digging very deep holes for itself.
I don't think they've been caught in the lie around in -- him and I think there are serious.
Issues about why there was inadequate security.
At the embassy and we got the guys who in the attack occurred and I think there was you know report.
That I answered some of those questions there -- other questions raised by those hearings but I actually don't think anybody's been caught in any kind of lie and on the IRS thing.
The IRS -- during the time of this incident was run by an appointee of George W.
Bush and you know.
This was a deplorable action but there's no suggestion.
That that the president or anybody any political appointees had -- you do with the enemy will get -- will no doubt get to the bottom of it.
And nothing ain't nothing like that should ever happen I mean it's really deplorable OK but there's no suggestion.
That the president or anybody working directly -- -- -- about it.
There's not a sufficient defense not to be conservative groups were hollering all for the election that they were being.
-- now that the IRS was asking to see their donors you've just learned it was George Bush -- to basically well popped up to basically say today.
It was some low level and Cincinnati and something like this doesn't end up -- low level and I think -- -- -- more than an apology need some heads.
The -- this is an activity that has taken place in the past.
IRS abused rights of citizens in both of them and the Republican -- Democrat administration is not tolerable today.
I think to a certain extent that -- at the bottom.
So I -- I I completely agree with that I mean that's a very reasonable statement I mean we have to get to the bottom -- it.
They -- this should be an appropriate investigation.
And whoever is responsible should be content should be fired and you can't use the -- like and then usually iron -- the -- is going to be the enforcement agency -- -- on the health -- and which right now they're basically.
Trying to figure out how they're -- basically enforced so listen -- all us privacy information that people -- have the medical records of what it's all to do with the -- -- per day and and obviously you don't trust the IRS.
It didn't live up to the privacy rules of the country.
-- -- while I don't think that this permeates the entire IRS and and I think so far we think that there's who has won division.
In Cincinnati we don't know if there on every other involved but I mean nobody should nobody -- we -- -- the interest they are as I.
-- -- -- -- -- Well actually I trusted -- somewhat more than I do the other parts of by the IRS is run by an appointee outlet that point period in question -- run by an appointee of president George W.
And if you.
You you make -- happens that somehow excuses the conduct of and also -- oversight by the it was the United States because it.
Irrespective of who appointed -- it is still the Obama administration and he is.
This -- -- -- responsible for a federal government by the way.
When you look at obamacare -- have to wonder if he really wants his name on it because it's falling to pieces.
Now we got immigration reform very quickly.
We've watched it yesterday the the Senate Judiciary Committee over seven camp -- refuse to secure the border in -- amendments.
Conservative if you will.
How can this possibly get through -- no one knows how many immigrants are under discussion here.
No one knows the cost we've got numbers that range from six point three trillion dollars in net cost of the country -- two and a half billion.
How does this would call -- rational public -- Well I think that you have a by about thirty bipartisan group -- very Smart people trying to find a solution to a very typical how bipartisan is when the vote is ten to eight but I had.
-- equally as important need these gangs of eight which we've seen over the years on both sides.
I've served at the end of days here -- tough tough they'll get through I don't have without -- -- for an out of the senate.
Seventy votes for this and heard it here and they the Obama administration didn't know anything about it a bit higher Ed Rollins Richards -- thank you very much that's.
