Removed from the White House Susan Rice is now president Obama's national security advisor that position does not require senate confirmation.
-- -- Johnny Isaacson joins us now from Capitol Hill senator.
No -- required from senate hearings.
She takes -- a very central position at the White House right next to the president what's your response.
Well Susan rice's experience in government she was in the Clinton administration she's done a good jobs and -- been Gaza situation has been troublesome.
The Stewart quite frankly have been Gaza situation -- which he was she repeated what she was told to say.
I think that whole lot from the administration not with her so I think -- be a good point.
But we do not we will not -- -- -- find out what happened in the Gaza -- -- senate hearings required for ms.
We're continuing to try and find out I was on the foreign relations committee last year I have read the email traffic.
We know exactly what was true and that was that the administration knew Ben Ghazi was in trouble months before the attack took place.
They tried to report a story that there was a movie trailer that cost and -- it was spontaneous.
Which we now know it was not we're not gonna -- -- -- that -- are you comfortable with ms.
Ryan's in this very senior position might have -- very center -- now.
Given what she did on that someday have to thank god some pretty flat out misleading -- -- in the -- the administration gave her the information that she repeated five separate times on the Sunday morning shows.
That's the fault of the people gave her the admin information not her fault for repeating -- she had no way to know better OK I wanna get back to the RS comment on that because.
We the people we do not yet know who was behind the target him.
So the -- that is the question that we've we've all been asking and we haven't got an answer yet what can we do about this.
Grant immunity for testimony in return for testimony we -- suspect and pretty much believe that the trail goes up the chain.
Somebody in the IRS knows who called on this to -- somebody knows who orchestrated it somebody knows information and -- they're going to be people take in the Fifth Amendment is learners already -- We need to give them immunity from prosecution in return for testimony so we get to the bottom of -- we cannot destroy the trust of the American people.
In our government but we're gonna do it if we let the IRS -- go unabated.
Do you believe that there was a direct link at some point between the campaign the Obama reelection campaign.
And what the RS was doing to the present political opponents.
Until you have an investigation to disprove that that certainly got to be a consideration -- you don't want a special prosecutor.
If we have to have a special prosecutor but I would rather start with a robust investigation.
In the house and in the senate.
Grant immunity in return for testimony which we have the capability of doing trying get to the facts and if you get a special prosecutor everything goes behind -- -- you've got transparency in the house and senate the IRS needs to be transparent investigation is being transparent.
And we need to grant immunity to those who can come tell us what really happened do you think we'll see that this summer.
I think -- on this issue is not going away Stuart you can bury this issue.
It's too important to the credibility of the country and the IRS we've got to get it right in congress is gonna get it right.
-- senator Johnny Isaacson we appreciate you being with us today on a very busy day thank you so.
Thank Stewart so.
