Hi I'm Bill O'Reilly thanks for watching us tonight grilling the IRS.
That is -- subject of this evening's talking points memo today the house Ways and Means Committee questioned me.
Fired IRS commissioner Steve Miller.
One of his deputies.
IRS has admitted.
It unfairly targeted conservative groups for years.
-- the boss Miller.
Says -- don't know much about it.
I'm gonna take.
Exception to the concept of targeting because it's a loaded term.
Delisting was done mostly.
Not a list things and you created a be on the lookout list there that's not a centralized.
Government mandated or directed listing.
You had to be on the lookout list did you acknowledge.
Who is responsible.
For targeting -- these individuals.
So I don't I don't have name's -- mr.
Brady and then I'm willing to try to find that out.
Since his last day this to death I think is today.
So let's say -- guys see the Obama administration's gonna find out.
Exactly what happened and -- the -- its injustice and now in the IRS you know there are willing.
To find out.
You sense a theme here.
Attorney general holder also announced.
A criminal investigation of what happened.
I think we're gonna mail -- figure out exactly what happened.
They'll be able to figure it out.
Now -- in this because it's so ridiculous the inspector general discovered the iris targeting conservative groups months ago.
Miller and a White House both new.
The IRS is being investigated.
Yet now not before now that everybody wants to find out who did -- This is why many Americans don't trust -- government.
Talking points doesn't know who directed IRS agents to target values that -- conservative groups and individuals.
But Shirley Miller knows much more than he sank.
And that brings us to what happens next Miller could be indicted.
As possible the FBI's investigating but only only.
When IRS people from the inside start to blow the whistle.
Will -- scandal be defined.
To -- happens it's all speculation.
What's not speculation is the chaos we are seeing in Washington right now that's damaging a nation.
And the president is rightfully taking massive heat.
That's -- memo now for the top stories and I while ahead of the IRS objects of the word target one man apparently did have a bullseye on his back is speaking out.
Franken -- salute and Idaho businessman.
Donated one million dollars to help Mitt Romney well after that.
He was audited on three different occasions running up nearly 100000.
Dollars in legal bills to -- south of Salt Lake City is -- -- -- -- So you had you on a little more than a year ago after you donated to Romney campaign.
And the Obama campaign website began to hammer in -- you name out there and all of this business let's start there.
Then what happened.
Well that morning April 20 2012 that's when my life changed.
I got a phone call from my son and he said daddy gotta look at this and I went on there the campaign's website didn't turn out there was -- -- -- singled out out of thousands of donors.
Suggests saying two things about us one thing they said was.
That we had Davis had less than reputable records in that we had been on the wrong side of the law which certainly wasn't through for me.
And I don't think was true for -- -- so that was not the Obama campaign official website right.
Yes there is smear of you OK so then it gets out in the far left web site start to do want.
The very same day we -- started seeing blog sites and so called journalist stood started to repeat does messages about -- and did an about me personally.
And then I started leave losing customers that my business and we had putters of customers are our.
Our emails lit up our phones lines lit up and down.
We all hell broke loose for us and when -- the IRS appear.
Well there's one thing that happened before the IRS came in and daddy is.
We found an investigator.
Working for the -- subcommittee of investigations at least he said he was employed by them.
Severe around the courthouse I don't false -- courthouse in my hometown for three days asking questions about.
Meet personally in my personal background and and dignity and directors and and can straw also came out she said this is the president's.
And dead then there was an outpouring of support for us but.
But we don't know I -- show you that man was who -- nose and around in Idaho we don't know exact certainly laws.
Sure we do is sure we -- and his name is Michael Wolf and he worked for them and well we don't know for sure -- workable that's what I mean that is -- we don't know where website who he's connected to.
His website said he worked for the permanent the permanent subcommittee on investigations for the US senate.
-- -- so that's what is said at the time are so -- that looks like there's some -- you know guy trying to dig up dirt on you but let's get to the IRS which is most important.
Then they come in win.
Let's see too much later.
In September 12.
I got my first letter of of that we're going to be audited had you had -- audited before.
One time in the last thirty years OK so you're audited by the IRS.
And then I understand somebody else came in to look -- your books as well.
Yes I tell you did wrong the date was in June that got a guy I just -- -- all right the -- from the IRS was on September.
And -- and other agency involved in looking at your finances as well.
Yes -- Department of Labor so I got to audits on two notices of one notice of two artisan in June and then the Department of Labor.
And then once again in September the third IRS audit OK so there's less for -- cannot get as you.
Now it's almost a year later -- any of those audits come up with -- anything.
No sir nothing -- health no no penalties no finds nothing they owe you money I understand -- The only a large refund yes it's been held up.
And they tell me it's coming I should get it within the next ninety days okay it's been held up for a long time but in order to defend you in your corporation you had to spend a 100000 dollars in legal fields are they gonna.
These are they getting reimbursed -- for it.
Oh I don't think so I don't think that's part of it.
About it was about 80000 dollars in total that we spend on legal fees and accounting fees all right so heavily on its circumstantially there's no question that -- -- target.
Because she gave money in and Romney.
That's what it seems -- hit.
No here's the question they chose eight people.
The president's campaign -- eight people.
I believe to show what happens to donors to there to the Romney -- -- -- had a big impact on me it was chilling on the other people to and a -- I'm hoping that they'll come forward and say what happened to them also.
You know what's gonna happen tremendous -- You're gonna be called in front of congressional committee to testify after they see this tonight.
And you know we got to stop this we can't have the IRS terrorizing American citizens for.
What they want to do legally in the political round.
You -- -- courage we appreciate you standing up if anything happens any blow back toward you any threats toward -- you let us know right away.
And we'll follow the -- eventually the sorry had to go through it.
Thank you thank you next --
