Jabbing his dues and they hear Republicans tell -- the chairman is loaded for bear dead heads rolling heads the house financial services committee the very same -- -- -- That will be holding what stands to be an explosive RS hearing this time asking -- secretary Jack -- and authorities and the White House itself note.
And -- when they militants service.
What didn't -- hear today you wanna get answers from these guys tomorrow.
-- -- -- you know look where do we start I mean I think you may have heard that tomorrow Lois.
Learner he's leading offensive.
She's pleading the fifth for leading an IRS division -- trampled on the first.
We continue to hear a different story from some segment of the administration with -- Passing day -- what do you don't let that person was that the -- that is the center of all of us.
Isn't talking is an answer your questions I mean what he did.
I think it's just a matter of time -- before people come forward to expose the source of all this we still don't know.
Who have originally issued do you Warner who.
Who approve this activity and again.
You know the American people are are are outraged and -- you would think they need.
It's nice though they haven't lost their ability to be outraged because again this is the most feared agency of government.
Trampling upon almost sacred rights I think it's a matter of time and chairman -- who heads up our.
Our committee on oversight investigations will be very methodical.
But you know I'm interested -- speaking to our new secretary of treasury.
I don't precisely know what he knew and when he knew it.
But if you know what it appears is that there is a -- sure.
To keep bad news from going to the president -- his then chief of staff you know any organization I didn't -- Then his -- travel fast and these are guys who are saying hear no evil see no evil in order to insulate them.
That's unacceptable I want to ask the secretary well how about going forward you know what is going to be an acceptable activity.
Now that you're taking over the yard as -- you weren't in charge of the White House for the president for a full year.
Yeah how did you have not knowing this why why did you have a culture that -- such a serious charge who's being leveled.
You seemingly were unaware of it.
We you know -- -- you're -- it's no lawyer.
Congress -- but the one thing that struck me as odd and maybe it is a legal defense and real rationale port.
Because when the White House chief counsel's.
Knows that the inspector general.
It's about the really support saying that IRS was targeting conservative groups who doesn't want to pass it on to the president for fear that it would look like he's.
Immersing and may be meddling in in an issue.
Then I began thinking what else -- -- hold off from the chief because I'd always tend to think the president is not elaborate they know.
They know everything and and and this would place his counsel.
Above and that is knowing more stuff that -- does.
-- so so on that level -- about -- I can understand the legal rationale.
People could come back -- so the president was hiding something.
But it's not is it ignorance is bliss he so you know that's a good.
The American people want to know why is our commander in chief why is the chief executive.
Learning about this from the newspaper at the time when the rest the American people learn about.
Why is it that the house has asked these questions for over two years you know two years and always gotten was stonewalling.
From the IRS and the president and his and his then chief of staff now secretary of treasury Jack listen you know -- I'm not naming any news or maybe -- -- special prosecutor because it witnesses aren't gonna talk he'll answer your questions maybe the only.
The solution is a special prosecutor.
Well the house -- the authority to subpoena witnesses.
And again we will see where this goes with our house ways and means and -- In our house oversight and investigations committee the American panel.
You know -- says here that they're demanding answers and it really goes beyond the IRS because now the IRS.
Is combining with the HHS.
The Affordable Care Act also known as Obama care.
Creating some of the largest databases on individual.
But when decision HHS and you're an encyclopedia would deserve -- the same public news service is -- -- that has now -- up the private companies like H&R block of the Johnson Foundation's.
To pay for promoting a law that might it gone against that law.
So it's a mess.
Bet it is it is a total -- and we're not getting answers man from the administration.
And we will get answers and there will have to be accountability and I think the American people or waking up to the fact.
This is really the case of how government can get.
-- too expensive too intrusive too powerful and frankly too arrogant.
For the American people it's a real wakeup call well I enjoy watching your question questioning because -- relentless but never obnoxious which is.
Heidi I just fired about myself but I've rarely succeed chairman -- but thank you very much are very good to see if thank you.
