CNNs Jim Acosta and White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest had a spirited exchange Tuesday over the IRS lost emails in the conservative targeting scandal, with Acosta quipping it sounded like the classic dog ate my homework excuse.
I think the problem is despite all of this, we have seen an unwillingness Earnest began.
Doesnt that sound like the dog ate my homework, when you have two years of missing emails? Acosta asked. On the face of it, it doesnt sound credible.
Earnest played the partisan card, saying if one only listened to Republicans, a skewed picture of the controversy would emerge.
The fact of the matter is 24,000 emails from that time period have been reconstructed and produced to Congress, Earnest said. Again, because of our commitment to cooperating with Congressional oversight in this matter. Thats what weve been focused on, so again I understand why your eyebrows are raised when you see Republicans on Capitol Hill suggesting there are two years of missing emails. Its not true. A large chunk of those emails have already been provided to Republicans in Congress.
Earnest didnt seem to comprehend that a large chunk doesnt qualify as all. Like his boss, who told Bill OReilly in February there was not a smidgeon of corruption at the IRS, Earnest dismissed the controversy, again calling the charges conspiracy theories.
Speaker of the House John Boehner (R., Ohio) specifically addressed White House cooperation on the IRS matter Tuesday, saying the Obama administration hadnt done a damn thing to help us get to the truth of what really happened.

Spirited exchange??? LOL
How about going thru the motions.
Every bit the snarky liar that Carney Was.
Sharyl Attkisson Wastes No Time Linking Jay Carney’s Successor To Benghazi
If you only listened to the Republicans. That’s like a bank robber making an excuse for his innocent by saying you’re only listening to the police.
Still a pathetic White Hut press ‘corpse’.
