Everybody it's Friday here in the newsroom it's been a busy week as you can imagine very busy up here in Washington and -- Capitol Hill.
Intense IRS hearing today on the capital have everything.
But I want to take this -- to answer the questions that you have sent him.
Mentioned the best that we can and if your name is.
Called here we'll send you one of these lovely prices -- the water bottle.
War that fact.
Of the hat.
Or -- you have this special report spatula.
There handy come barbecue season.
We also have -- we have.

Art first of all.
K Robinson Clifton from Twitter.
-- Clifton 111138.
-- Brett how can the president not know there is an IG investigation and -- about the IRS.
Especially with the subject this bit.
-- I think that's a great question one in which.
The president's been asked a number of time a couple of times.
He said that he did not know about the IG investigation.
And the White House.
And he answered it a little in a strange way the semantics he answered in the Rose Garden yesterday.
Then some of his advisors went out including -- five for the White House communications director.
On CNN he was asked about it he -- the first time we were aware of this -- when we heard a few weeks ago there was an active inspector general report.
Into the IRS that's the first we heard we didn't know the details of it until they came -- in the press late last week now.
Remember the president said he found out Friday with the press reports.
He said no the -- the end the White House counsel was notified that there was inspector general review.
And then he said you know there are dozens of reports happening at the same time we didn't have any details of what had actually happened.
Or that they had actually found any wrongdoing here it was until we heard from the IRS and saw the reports in the press.
That we knew what had happened at that point the president of swift decisive action.
It is hard to believe that allegations like this so big.
Didn't make it up to change as somebody who would have told somebody who would have told president.
But that's what they're saying at this time.
It will also point out that the Tea Party and other organizations other groups.
Had been charging that this was happening for a long time so they knew about those allegations for quite some time.
So that's one question that I think -- it will it will continue to -- -- -- Bower and needy BO ER and EA TTY.
Brett where's the proof on actual wiretaps as I read DOJ got two months records.
A phone calls attorneys do that in cases but openly.
They did they got.
It was actually listening to phone calls wiretaps.
There were phone logs and phone numbers.
Twenty different phones I think it was.
That roughly 100 reporters use according to the Associated Press.
But who they were talking Jews who -- who they were trying to go after.
OK from FaceBook lose -- in the Garcia -- my question do you what is the atmosphere.
Like in DC right now has it been -- change since the election.
All right now the atmosphere in DC is pretty heated.
You have Democrats and Republicans both outraged at the -- scandal up on Capitol Hill really grilling me acting IRS commissioner.
You have Republicans.
Really asking some more tough questions and calling for more hearings on the Ghazi.
And there's a frustration on that issue I think on both sides of the I'll.
Depending on where you stand.
Whether things are getting -- or not and then on the AP story there's a well there's just skepticism that those that net had to be that why there's an understanding about national security.
But we're learning today that.
The AP held their story back based on the mold.
The al-Qaeda mole that was inside him and they thought was according to multiple sources that they wanted to send this person back into that al-Qaeda group.
In Yemen -- held the story.
-- were funny -- more details about that so the atmosphere here is explosive.
And I think you've seen that on our special report.
This week how long it'll be like that I don't know.
James Carville says this law passed in thirty days we'll -- Sharon Darlene rose -- figure.
With Sony major issues arising in daily -- to report on how do you prioritize.
And that's our biggest challenge.
To prioritize what goes into the show.
Active management walking by.
Because we have one hour.
-- mean we could easily take over Sheppard Smith's show every night due to our respect we -- have one and with commercials that's about forty minutes.
And we have to prioritize and make sure that we hear.
Doing what's in the news -- things today and there's been a lot of news lately so that's a real challenge for us we try to do the best that we can.
Two more and -- Hudson Anthony do you think you'll ever know the truth about -- -- You know I've asked been asked this question numerous times in the past eight to nine months.
I think it will eventually all come out.
Maybe not all of it but a lot more will come out that we learn.
Just from what I know privately.
-- and people that has not yet come out.
That we are trying to confirm and get other people to talk about.
Carol so we're bellow why does fox repeal all afternoon and evening shows except special report -- often -- SR because of work obligations.
I'd love it if he repeated at eleven -- I would love it to Carol pleased to have a repeat it twelve.
And that went away and then we repeated it 4 am.
Which was not ideal but people on the West Coast dealt with it -- but that went away so.
We'd love to have a repeat but we don't so what we ask people to do is is get -- DVR set.
-- -- DVR and if you're not home from work and a lot of people aren't.
You can watch it whenever you want to watch specially after -- -- 3 PM 4 PM mountain.
Even central time you need to probably record but.
It's still good recorded.
