-- the official who was in charge of the IRS tax exempt organizations office.
When the scandal is taking place she now is the head of the IRS -- obamacare implementation office.
-- as the latest piece of evidence that all of this was a coordinated political campaign aimed at silencing conservatives.
Now reaction from this bombshell is begin in -- pour in from Capitol Hill a short time ago senator John corner released a statement.
It reads in part quote.
The official who oversaw the targeting of Tea Party groups is now in charge of implementing obamacare at the IRS.
Now more than ever we need to prevent the I -- from having any role in americans' health care by the way I couldn't agree more.
And joining me now with reaction all these late breaking developments for speaker of the house Newt Gingrich.
The speaker welcome back.
It's good to -- with you and this is an extraordinary time for us to have a chance to talk about.
How Washington really works you know -- spend a lot of time thinking we've been friends for many many years.
Big before we get into the specifics of all those give -- the big picture of what you see going on and in Washington overall.
Well I think between the Ben -- scandal.
The scandalous secretary Sebelius who's been using.
Government power and prestige to raise money illegally for implementing obamacare despite.
The scandal though we have with the Internal Revenue Service.
The scandal we have with the Justice Department taking two solid months of records from the Associated Press secretly.
What people got to confront is.
This is a challenge of the entire process of big government this isn't about Barack Obama is a person.
This is not a personality.
-- to do dangerous things.
Then to lie about having done them and then to smear the people who tell the truth and I think we need to confront.
But the -- never gonna have a better argument for repealing obamacare the what you're watching day by day.
-- this starts to unfold and interestingly today that very thing happened though only two Democrats a House of Representatives again they've done this before voted to repeal the health care bill.
Only two Democrats.
Voted with them.
Let me -- this breaking news about the woman was in charge from the IRS during the Tea Party targeting is now running.
The -- -- IRS.
But a good choice well and look look first of all this ought to tell you that this certainly reaches up into the White House.
Mean does anybody any serious person believed that the top ranking Internal Revenue Service person in charge of implementing obamacare.
Was just casually picked.
Does anyone think that there was any disapproval what she was doing.
To stop conservative groups Tea Party groups.
Some of them -- -- there's a 27 month period.
One not a single Tea Party get certified by the Internal Revenue Service 27 months over two years.
Now is anybody seriously believe.
That the person in charge of doing that who by the way got a 100000 dollars technically a 103000 dollars in bonuses for having done a great job.
You really believe that she was picked.
To implement Obama -- -- Internal Revenue Service where there's a huge.
Build up of staff to make sure that they can track every single person in America on the health side.
That she was picked without the White House's approval.
It's it's inconceivable.
And I hope that the congress has -- -- demand.
Every single email every conversation.
Every decision document relating to her being picked.
-- for that job as it is clearly.
Gonna lead directly into the White House how all well that's pretty profound how significant in in your view.
speaker is it that they knew about this was such a long period of time before the election.
-- go back and look at every democratic senator who was writing letters demanding.
That the Internal Revenue Service inspect carefully.
All of these groups.
There -- a lot of democratic senators who were part of the pressure to do this look at the George Soros funded organizations on the left.
There were demanding the Internal Revenue Service to this go back -- look at the president and vice president's.
Hysterical language smearing and then attacking these groups I keep reminding people.
This is an administration.
Which refuses to profile terrorists even though thirty out of 31 of the top FBI wanted terrorist all have the same characteristics.
We can't profile would tell you about it there's going to be an appropriate but -- -- profiling words like patriots.
I mean it is unimaginable.
How corrupted the Internal Revenue Service had become culturally.
By this left wing bias against conservatism you do you talked.
Earlier about how they inevitably -- predictably will go after those that are seeking the truth or seeking answers.
And you often think strategically what do you recommend the Republicans do.
In anticipation of that as they try to get answers I think we need answers on -- Ozzie I think we need and answers on the eight.
But I think -- have the.
With a leadership for example of people like Darrell ice who's done a great job.
On the investigation oversight committee is chairman.
With the things John Boehner has been doing recently and that how we see Eric -- doing.
I think they're moving in the right direction I think Dave Camp and ways and means unity some great stuff and but I think the key is to slow down.
This story has to be thoroughly understood by the American people I -- the Ways and Means Committee over the next two or three months will bring in every single group.
That was sabotaged by the Internal Revenue Service let the country see how many different groups and by the way.
Not just Tea Party groups but I just got to know today for a friend.
What a conservative.
Pro national security group that exactly the same kind of treatment the same kind of harsh behavior from the Internal Revenue Service.
There are some -- there -- some donors frankly who are being treated unbelievably -- week.
They should be brought in and let's look at I think a lot of decision documents need to be pulled forward a lot of people asked to testify.
They can't get away on the Democratic Party side with claiming it was one or two people they'll war a lot of people involved in this and we need to look at all of them.
I like I like the idea let people command let the country hear their stories what they went through and and that we'll go from there I think that's a good strategy.
What we -- -- wanna ask you about Benghazi in the significance of that we'll continue more speaker Gingrich.
