Watch: Former IRS official struggles to remember who she worked with:
The Blaze ^ | June 25 2014 | Pete Kasperowicz

Jennifer O’Connor, a former IRS attorney who now works in the White House, struggled on Tuesday to remember the names of her former IRS colleagues before a House oversight hearing.

O’Connor, now in the Office of White House Counsel, testified in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on what she knew about efforts to gather together emails that Republicans are seeking as they investigate the IRS’ targeting scandal.

But in one conversation with Rep. (R-Utah), O’Connor had trouble remembering who she dealt with at all during her six months at the IRS. Chaffetz started by asking who she worked with and who reported to her.

“One of the things that I did was to work with a team that was fairly small at that time, but got very large later,” she said.

“Who was on that team?” Chaffetz asked.

“It’s a whole number of IRS people and it changed,” she replied. When pressed by Chaffetz, she suggested, “I think the best way to get you accurate information on that would be to ask the IRS.”

Chaffetz pressed again for O’Connor to list who she interacted with. O’Connor named a few people she reported to, which prompted Chaffetz to ask who reported to her.

“Um…” she began. After more prodding, she eventually replied:

“There is somebody who’s name was… I can’t even remember his last name. I think his first name may have been Ben.”

“So a guy named Ben,” Chaffetz said. “A dude named Ben.”

Later, she said she talked with Ken Corbin, who replaced Lois Lerner as the head of tax-exempt organizations at the IRS. But she couldn’t come up with any others.

“You’re a very bright person,” he said. “You’re very bright, you’re a very personable person. Why are you being so elusive?

Because if she told the truth, it would blow the case wide open? And then she'd be under the Obamabus?

All bark and no bite. Lots of cheap political theater of no consequence.

If I was a Dem, I would have no fear of this circus. Its all posturing and grandstanding. The Dems know the GOP is a complete farse and isn’t going to do a damn thing about it.

What’s the point to all this? I watch Darrel Issa on television last evening all but admit, they can investigate, but in the end, the DOJ will do nothing.

End of story. Nada

Trying that again...

“You’re a very bright person,” he said. “You’re very bright, you’re a very personable person. Why are you being so elusive?

Just plain wow.

That woman was going to answer “I don’t know nuthin and nobody told me nuthin” to everything.

I grew up in Chicago hearing that phrase every day as a punchline.

She doesn’t deal with people. She deals with numbers and power.

"a former IRS attorney who now works in the White House"

Typical, isn't it. Obama knows how to keep the hardcore criminals on his leash to prevent them from becoming whistle blowers.

No. Because if she told the truth, the truth was that she did nothing to gather the emails.

She couldn't remember the names because there were no names to remember.

Because of a nasty head injury I'd guess.Osama Obama's people seem to be the clumsiest people on earth.No wonder Osama himself has made reference to the Special Olympics.

Obama and his minions are making a complete mockery of Congress. Files disappear, hard drives crash, people can't remember the most obvious things, etc. and they are getting away with it and will unless Congress starts to draw real blood.
