You are probably spot on. Big Hand Cummings up to run interference for Zero.

Huh?
Not at all. Anyone higher up can order underlings to do things, and the underlings would often have no knowledge of “political motivations”.

it’s not over. Hull has ID’d some more people that can be called in who were higher in the chain.

We have to follow the chain.

Cummings has one purpose: provide cover for the WH and Obama Admin.

Cummings now brings up a McConnell statement or ad? Why is he asking Liz about this? Asks if Liz knows whether Obama has dug through anyone’s tax returns. allrighty.

Great point. Cummings playing the fool,

"Do you have any knowledge of the President digging through tax returns?"

Mr. Turner taking Mr. Cummings to task about what they know...did Obama have lunch yesterday? Well you weren’t there, but you know he had lunch...

Issa smacks down one Cummings red herring - No one has claimed this leads to WH.

Today we have established that it does lead to Washington.

BOOM!

Issa says facts now show the trail leads to Washington. keeps adding, though, that he has never implicated Obama.

Rep. Turner - Says Liz and Carter don’t know whether Obama had lunch yesterday, even though we know he DID have lunch......Cummings asking whether Liz or Carter know if Obama had any involvement in this process is stupid. (stupid is my word). They can’t know that.

Cummings ordered to get “I have no personal knowledge of connection to President...White House” from witnesses.

Issa had already interrupted and said “I never said it went to the President.”

Cummings more or less said, “screw off, they ordered me to give this speech, and I’m not done.”

Connelly up: “It’s all a big mistake. WORDS are to be blamed, not people.

uh.... Connelly wandering around in circles, stating “it’s not Obama’s fault, it’s not Obama’s fault”.

All we need is one more person to DENY it without it being an accusation as PROOF.

The democrats are making it very clear that this is a pure political fight for them. They don’t want their weaponized IRS to be stopped or their emperor fingered.
