Which is why the GOP shouldn’t be minimizing the issue by merely asking for an ‘apology’.
The Republicans didn’t ask for the apology that was given out of the blue freely by the IRS mostly as a response to the IG report which becomes public this week, thanks in no small part to Mark Levin’s Landmark Legal Foundation. He went around the IRS and filed a complaint with the Treasury Department IG Office. If they are willing to give up that info, what else is there in the low hanging fruit they are willing to give up to protect that which is much higher.
If I were an employee of the Cincinnati office and heard that on the news, I would have been taking a long coffee break to get in tough with my lawyer, or find one, and have him contact the House and Ways Committee chairman to invoke the whistle blower status. Cantor has already said they will be initiating hearings and from what I have read, two others, one of which is Judiciary.
Boner will cry and apologize.
