In a fiery exchange during Tuesday’s White House press briefing, one reporter pointedly asked Press Secretary Jay Carney how he could be “categorically certain” that no one from the White House was involved in the IRS targeting conservative groups.Carney stumbled when asked whether he was basing his claims on assumptions. “I can tell you that … I am not aware of anyone here knowing about it.”

If these acts were not directed, that means they were systemic. And if so, everyone needs to be removed, top to bottom.

Jay’s getting frustrated with the fact that the media’s no longer acting like a lapdog.

You can’t believe anything this bunch says. We found out last week that they denied ordering the officer in charge in Tripoli to stand down because they did not consider telling him he had no authority to go to Benghazi to be a stand down order. This bunch is worse than Bill “depends of the meaning of is” Clinton.

P.S. - how can anyone be sure Harry Reid didn’t get his rumor (about Romney not paying his taxes) from one of his ‘friends’ at the IRS?

“I can tell you that … I am not aware of anyone here knowing about it.”

Got to love the beginning of that statement, "“I can tell you that …", doesn't really mean it's true, but I can tell you that, LOLOL.

Why not just state " I am not aware of anyone here knowing about it." without a qualifier?

Maybe I'm too cynical, but it sure sounds like he left himself a legalese/weaselese out.

It’s time for a special prosecutor.

I’m betting they will appoint Bill Clinton.

Exactly, because if lower level employees can do this without their superiors even knowing then they have way too much power.

I wonder what the chances are that a few maverick nobodies did this? I wonder what the odds would be in Vegas.
