Keeping straight all the scandals, cover-ups, obfuscations and excuses for massive DOJ document seizures that are occurring during the watch of the administration that replaced the Bush era with unprecedented levels of transparency and rule of law does tend to be confusing. However, if these guys arent careful, at some point they might accidentally start talking about a scandal that the public doesnt yet know about:
At Rep. Steny Hoyers weekly meeting with reporters on Tuesday, the Maryland Democrat was asked if he was concerned about the DOJ seizing phone records from Associated Press journalists working in the House press gallery in the Capitol building.
Hoyers answer was well-delivered: Articulate, clear, firm and precise.
One problem: He responded to the wrong scandal.
The IRS activity was inappropriate, inconsistent with our policies and practices as a country, very concerning, needs to be reviewed carefully, Hoyer, one of the top-ranking House Democrats, said in response to a question from Fox News Chad Pergram about the DOJ. We need to ensure that this does not happen again, and we need to find out how long it continued, when it was stopped. It is my understandingthere was a front-page story on this at the [Washington] Postits my understanding that [IRS official] Lois Lerner, who was apparently overseeing this, at some point in time found out about this and said
When Hoyer named Lerner, Pergram interrupted.
Were talking about two things, Pergram, who apparently had not heard the first mention of the IRS, said from across the table, You said Lois Lerner and the IRS.
Another reporter sitting closer to Hoyer, Public Radio Internationals Todd Zwillich, learned over and said softly, Hes talking about the AP story.
Oh, Im sorry, Im sorry, excuse me, Hoyer said, pausing briefly. Whatever happened, we need to find out why it happened. But clearly it should not have happened. I dont know enough about whether there was a warrant sought.
Maybe the three should be condensed into one big scandal APBenghazIRS just so no matter which theyre commenting on, theyve got the right one.
He probably thinks Benghazi is something you rub on sore muscles.
Hoyer is talking Crap.
We need to find out facts. What a joke. Hoyer doesn’t want facts, because facts point to Democrats. Hoyer is in the top 10 biggest pieces of dung in the federal system.
A man who never worked a day in his life. Has spent his entire life sucking at the Government teat.
He and Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are the biggest slime in the Congress.
I predict the media will start doing the good cop bad cop and thus start saying the feel sorry for 0bama with all the people around him screwing up.
Bottom line: unless our sides reps, sens, etc., push for investigations, make lawsuits, there wont be any impeachment, no anything.
Hoyer IS crap.
Steny was trained by Nancy
I have been working for the last ten years to save Maryland from that POS, but people in his district are convinced that the only reason the Pax River Naval Station is still in St. Mary’s County is because of Steny.
Lots of jobs at stake so they vote for the worthless scum.
I know two things.
The sun will come up tomorrow—and the Republican Party will let me down.
I think Ol’ Steny can be excused. Heck, he’s got many years on me and I can’t keep them all straight without a scorecard.
Whatever scandal you are talking about... Democrats were not at fault!
hoyer is toilet bowl scum...one of the grandest parasites in government.
Maryland "Freak State" PING!
