House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) revealed new testimony from IRS employees on CNN's State of The Union on Sunday. According to transcribed excerpts released by the Committee, a Cincinnati IRS employee made it clear they were told by Washington, D.C. personnel to give extra scrutiny to Tea Party groups:
Q: In early 2010, was there a time when you became aware of applications that referenced Tea Party or other conservative groups?
A: In March of 2010, I was made aware.
Q: Okay. Now, was there a point around this time period when [your supervisor] asked you to do a search for similar applications?
Q: To the best of your recollection, when was this request made?
A: Sometime in early March of 2010.
Q: Did [your supervisor] give you any indication of the need for the search, any more context?
A: He told me that Washington, D.C., wanted some cases.
Q: So as of April 2010, these 40 cases were held at that moment in your group; is that right?
A: Some were.
Q: How many were held there?
A: Less than 40. Some went to Washington, D.C.
Q: Okay. How many went to Washington, D.C.?
A: I sent seven.
Q: So you prepared seven hard copy versions of the applications to go to Washington, D.C.?
Q: Did he give you any sort of indication as to why he requested you to do that?
A: He said Washington, D.C. wanted seven. Because at one point I believe I heard they were thinking 10, but it came down to seven. I said okay, seven.

14th Amendment apparently got overlooked along the way.
Worst administration ever..
Nuke ‘em from orbit, its the only way to be sure...
So who is the “he” supervisor?
It always pisses me off to read this type of article and no “names”
are ever mentioned.
“D.C. Told Us To Target Tea Party”
New shorthand for the Obama administration: “D.C.”
They didn’t ask for the name of the person to whom they were sent???
You and me both. It's like saying "they" blah blah blah...
Knock knock....who's there? They. They who?...I don't know..."
Totally agree! It’s like a report on Playboy with no photos. On a serious note, at what point in the info chain are those all-important names neglected or removed.
“They didnt ask for the name of the person to whom they were sent???”
He volunteered the name: D.C. = Darack Cobama
LOL that was funny
Eventually, several people under oath will say the orders came from Obama. Then what? I think I’d rather it was not from him. It’d be a lot more likely heads will roll. If it’s Obama nothing will happen.
Feigning ignorance and scapegoating subordinates is not an answer to criminal activity.
Thank you. I missed that.
I hope as the threat of felony prison time sinks in some of these dupes decide they’re not and let this trickle UP where it started.....let us pray.
