Hes retiring in a month or so, so has nothing to lose.
Exactly. Hull is retiring and the critters are going on vacation. Boehner let the WH run out of the clock on this one. Nothing will happen on the IRS except more debate club meetings. Then there will be a new crisis in September to focus on. Debt ceiling, etc., etc. Boehner flat has no fight in him.
The House Committee can’t do anything to any of these people except try to get the facts out, then, if they see criminal issues, REFER IT TO THE JUSTICE DEPT PROSECUTOR. Which is like saying refer it to Obama/Holder for action.
I’m in favor of finding the facts and getting them out, needless to say.
Expecting more is to misunderstand the system under which we operate.
Fact finding hearings/investigations plus criminal referrals is all that can be done, from the Congress. It’s all that could ever be done, historically, light years before Boehner ever drew a breath on this earth.
Next, we’ll hear about how everybody who is culpable in all things administration need to be impeached, and Boehner will get blamed for not bringing impeachment charges against everyone from Lois Lerner on up.
I’ve even read posters who claim that House members or Senators themselves can be impeached.
I think most of us are skeptical but I guess we’ll see.
