And -- the impact segment tonight the talking points memo going bull worth on all the controversies in Washington.
According to an article in New York Times president Obama's told confidants that he would like to gold.
That is a reference to a 1998 Warren Beatty movie with a onetime matinee idol played senator Jay Billington little bull worth.
Who was a complete phony toward the end of the film the senator has an epiphany and decides to tell the truth.
You could have -- -- -- what it.
There really save me money to my.
They pretty must attend the meeting get a bill like that followed up -- my committee during an election and that way the killer -- -- not look.
Now I as an American citizen walked.
President Obama -- goal bulwark.
To actually tell us what he thinks especially about the controversies in Benghazi with the IRS and the Justice Department snooping around reports.
But so far the president is doing a great imitation.
Of the late actor Jon banner.
-- -- Now here's how bad lack of information really yes.
When Chris Wallace asked where the president was tonight ambassador Stevens was killed -- -- Ghazi.
He didn't get very far.
Do you not know whether he was -- -- I don't I don't remember what room the president was in on that night and that's and that's a largely irrelevant facts.
No it's not Americans want to know where the commander in chief was while his ambassador in three other Americans were being killed.
That is a valid question.
Former I Harris chief.
Testify before the senate but predictably.
He doesn't know anything about targeting conservative.
How did this happen.
-- chairman I can't say.
I can't say that I know that answer it's I've now had the benefit of Reading the report.
On and that's you know the full accounting of facts that I have at this point and so I -- I don't think I can answer that quest.
-- I don't.
Nobody can answer any questions do you sense a pattern here.
If you're a fair minded person -- Obama administration's becoming a frustrating experiences and -- Just tell us what happened Mr.
President stop dancing around we don't need a replay of Watergate.
This is not Watergate but there are some people in the administration.
They have acted as if they want to be nixonian.
And it's a -- big problem.
Yes it's a big problem so Mr.
President again let's goal -- -- Tell -- a true.
And that's -- -- now for some interesting information on the -- story as you may know President Obama says he learned about the scandal on May tenth.
-- White House counsel Catherine rambler.
Apparently knew about it on April 24.
And so did -- White House chief of staff Denis McDonough.
Treasury Secretary Jack -- knew about the IRS investigation.
On March 15.
But again mr.
Obama knew nothing.
Until -- tenth.
To us now from Washington Fox News political analyst Charles Krauthammer and you say.
Well the president says.
Everybody has to tell the truth.
I was on the show last week Thursday today the president answered questions from the press who I was standing next -- the prime minister of Turkey.
There was a question asked by the Bloomberg reporter.
Did anybody at the White House know about the IRS activities.
And you remember my saying on the show that time when you.
That Obama gave a very lawyerly and peculiar answer.
-- C did not answer about the White House staff he said.
I didn't know about the IG report until I learned about him in the press but the question was not about him.
The question was about the White House staff.
And he deliberately -- that answer now we know that when he was asked that question last Thursday.
He knew at the time -- -- his staff did know about it.
The press story from Jay Carney was only you know White House counsel knew about it but it turns out -- -- as you just showed.
The chief of staff knew they were actually discussion -- treasury officials.
How to let the story out so all of his activities going on the president knows that they do.
But he doesn't answer the question.
That was an ally but that was a deliberate surprise invasion eBay -- this from a man.
Who somehow leaks to the times the idea that he's -- only interest is.
In everybody on his staff.
Coming out and saying what they know.
Why didn't he say what he knew.
When that question was asked of him because that's there's they're not interest in telling anybody anything we know the answer to that -- tomorrow -- Lerner the head of IRS is exempt organizations division.
Is gonna testify.
-- She's gonna take the Fifth Amendment in front of the house oversight committee.
This is huge.
Now -- into criminality alerts and -- it should commit a crime but she's gonna take the Fifth Amendment anyway.
I mean c'mon man this is really building is -- not.
There's a lot of oxygen here when anybody takes the fifth in front of congress.
We compute -- it's not unreasonable.
That there's a lot they've got to hide and they're very worried yes in -- court of law the -- is not supposed to -- that.
But this is an accord -- us is that Julia and I wonder why this person is certainly -- -- citizen -- citizens making reasonable references.
That there is very nasty stuff here.
And the reason there's more oxygen here.
Is because -- -- of that committee to one that held hearings today that you showed in the clip.
It is a Democrat.
This isn't a Max Baucus the democratic chair.
The Senate Finance Committee.
The senate controlled by Democrats who said this story is very very unusual.
The and that there's a lot he said yesterday.
When he submitted 41 questions.
To the IRS including did you have any.
About this with treasury or with the White House -- he said my gut tells me.
There's a lot here so you cannot -- you can no longer have the White House.
Pretending as it does -- Ben Ghazi.
That this is a partisan witch hunt this is Democrats this is yet.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- investigating a story about North Korea.
Two UN sanctions by testing of missiles -- -- -- what he was doing.
Justice Department wants to find out who -- and sources for this information.
Goes in and looks it -- James his personal email account for about the almost a month.
What do you say about that.
This is a brazen assault on the First Amendment.
Freedom of the press we have traditionally will go after the emails.
The person who's under criminal suspicion for leaking it.
But -- there we do not go after the journalist who merely are soliciting information we have never had.
A successful prosecution of a -- -- you see it as -- his -- fox play here.
Look I don't know whether in this particular case it was any fox.
But it surely was an assault on the press and we also know that from the beginning of this administration the White House starting with the president.
Has tried to delegitimize.
Fox and pretend somehow it's outside the sphere of journalistic.
Integrity and protection and again it all on their this is all -- -- the attorney general.
All right and he can't recuse himself from this so let's hear what you have to say mr.
attorney general hi Charles quote to quoted Democrat.
The fish rots from the head -- And we'll have more on a controversy surrounding.
