-- that you misled this committee.
So that was a lot of questions earth it's want how can we conclude that you did not mislead this committee I did not mislead the committee.
We got -- what the Democrats or Republicans.
Did something like this the oh great -- still believe it -- is that not correct.
-- the outrage as to.
Yes our most expansive federal powers.
Are given to our most intrusive.
And then you add on top of that incompetence or whatever else we have and it's a disaster.
-- Then a man and here Republican congress into -- like talented individuals warming up the man who says he wants to get to the bottom there's IRS best it was a right now Hong -- It's as we get any answers at all today.
Well to get a mixed bag of responses from mr.
Regarding what he -- calls when he doesn't -- call in this very important time period from January 2010 the president.
He seemed to have some good memories on some issues -- very lackluster memory and other issues so I think bottom line is our committee.
Got a lot of information from which to build on now are further inquiries and are further investigation.
About not only -- tax exempt organizations were handled with their applications for 501 C four status that whether.
Even the just dissemination of taxpayer information.
To outside groups whether that occurred as well -- -- as a result should be held accountable for that.
Do you suspect that this goes way beyond this conservative groups other reason I mention -- -- and I will give their names away by the number of very prominent CEOs and ten and top conservatives Republicans in general some moderate Republicans of that.
Told me you know -- I was audited and Minnesota I was like hey you brought -- -- in other -- -- that there.
They're not groups these are individuals and I'm wondering it might just be coincidence.
But whether there might have been a larger systemic.
Our problem and and targeting going on.
-- that's what we need to find out the purpose of today's hearing was just to set the table for the parameters around which we're gonna continue our work on the Ways and Means Committee.
Chairman campus on a great job just to get -- get everything in place so that the full committee as well as the subcommittee on oversight can continue.
To look into these individual issues.
That are out there and have a lot of credibility and for the answers that I heard from mr.
Miller we're certainly not answered -- by what his commentary was today who.
Real quickly said the one thing that caught my mind with some of the democratic questioners today was that -- be kept mentioning you know.
Lot of these were bush appointees a lot he's -- bush -- -- isn't as if that minimize what the series is what's going on today.
We do know enough that it was these conservative groups -- were targeting so whether they were bush appointees are Milledge still -- point is that it does that really matter.
Now I don't think it matters at all the question as.
Why employees with -- -- -- Both in the Cincinnati office but also in Washington DC DC and other offices.
Clearly violated their obligations under current federal law on how they handle these applications and how perhaps they handle taxpayer information generally.
And it's not with it's not really irrelevant -- who was appointed to -- it's when you're in that position what your legal obligation is and how that information is used and how you handle those applications.
And that's where we're gonna continue to a moving query.
We're gonna have a summer hearings -- Well there's a lot of information that we want to go over and a lot of information it's not been produced for our committee as of yet.
And if you listen to the testimony by inspector general George that office is gonna continue to a lot more investigation into these issues.
There's going to be a lot more hearings.
That are -- ultimately to the truth of what happened all right.
Congress and thank you for taking the time.
