-- -- to back to Hannity now while there was no October surprise that shook up the 2012 presidential election we now know that in reality there with three massive scandals or happening behind the scenes.
-- the widespread national security cover up of the -- Ghazi terror attack the IRS targeting conservative groups and the Department of Justice spying on reporters.
There was clearly no lack of scandal within the administration but regardless of whether the president know about any of -- The question we're asking tonight did anyone in the Obama administration -- -- stories from you the voters so that they can win the election.
Here to answer that question -- more former Obama economic advisor.
Professor of economics at the university Chicago Booth school of business Austin police.
-- couldn't see the piracy issue you know I'm going to be I'm always afraid that you got a trap door here today I think that I.
I think I'm not a good idea that might not mean that as ever here -- what.
I think does -- that's terrific.
-- I'm gonna give you.
Uninterrupted minute I I -- that hard to believe but I appreciate what I am gonna what's the thought OK I want you to answer this question.
Okay twelve stories on -- Ghazi twelve versions are talking points that went from a truth to a web of lies okay.
And in the Irish story by my count five.
Adjustments versions that have come out from the Obama White House tell me why you got one minute.
Well I don't know I mean I'm not in the White House I've I've been gone for almost two years so I.
Nobody tales of who heads said who -- what but I think to characterize that that it was all of election ploy.
The being -- issue.
Was the subject of one of the presidential debates I mean I don't think that's something that's -- central issue of a presidential debate could be considered.
Not involved in the presidential campaign.
And as I've said on this show.
The to me the issue on the I -- scandal if they targeted.
Only conservatives that's a major problem and they've got to get to the bottom of that and that that seems -- -- as major legal implication.
Thus far the inspector general's report came out and -- believe that the evidence is saying that 30%.
Of the enhanced investigations were of conservative groups.
I think we at least -- -- little more what's going on -- minutes up that was one -- I've got in right let me go to him -- -- -- start there.
We -- -- -- CIA.
Said that they needed more security and the people on the ground asked for it.
It was denied knowing you want to know who -- who denied that.
That's exactly what have added I have what what my understanding you you are more brand expert about it you are following it very closely and I have not -- But it is my understanding.
That there was significant disagreement between the CIA the FBI.
And several other girls that but that's what comes around in the and they -- -- there -- multiple requests they would tonight Doreen the attack.
We still don't know where the president of the United States was after it was told about it and four in the afternoon which -- we know that.
I have no idea.
And you should we know -- -- to stand down orders when Americans were under attack that night as what we familiar you are hilly expert on -- I know you've been following close -- you really don't be put at a disadvantage I don't follow that it.
Spyware guys are ever -- look when Americans are attacked and even if they're not under attack.
-- favor more information not less -- blank -- -- and national security implications.
Edgy as I think we can all agree the first maybe it should be done within intelligence -- first talking point.
Had the exact truth to what happened not yeah well now I don't Margaret what was -- an agreement but they knew was on -- Sharia that now terror that right on out there was a character disarray waited between multiple agencies.
But I just -- -- you know wants it wasn't just the State Department I know you keep saying that.
But now there's this allegation.
Then they change is good.
That they changed the email because they know not -- government that whoever gave it to the press but it doctored email we're told was a big lie.
The whole thing was a lie and a great kicks Pressler you I don't when I think -- -- -- -- they could not agreed.
Win I I don't understand why not talking got to take a break we'll come back early I'll try and -- just to match help you won't let him get his opinion on the IRS story when we come back of Austin will be straight ahead.
-- to take you now -- -- Austan -- right so the arrest -- six months before the election.
That conservative groups were targeted.
Don't you think that -- -- the voters should've known that.
Possibly though they were doing investigation why not I congressman isolate the one they know six months before the did it happen.
Would leave the -- -- asked the inspector general to inspect.
Right you certainly shouldn't announce things about the investigation Wallace going on -- even get -- but for example a big impact on election it might have what I -- then ask why didn't.
Chairman nice to say anything I mean he was told in march of 2012.
He that but that's exactly my point.
We shouldn't be talking about investigation the -- -- could have told the country hey we discovered we're targeting and that what they did is -- -- to sort of trump the BIG report they went out on their way but as.
If -- I agree that part was weird this thing about planting some I don't ask a question I don't understand that and now that's the person is pleading the fifth Friday and then that -- -- I don't understand.
In this circumstance though.
With the IRS.
I think it's important that we figure out is.
Since being conservative the thing that they were targeting does that say well.
It did did I just say you probably it is actually I'm not sure you didn't know it is Alex his -- because the data now show.
Only a third of the invent it as special investigated groups say that -- conservative she came out instead they went after groups with the word Tea Party patriots.
Conservative yes but she didn't -- -- and other things they looked at the other guy Miller who testified said.
-- all of the 300.
Were in that.
Tea Party because he'll serve my investigation -- why wouldn't she just told the truth why -- she -- she can't told I don't know what -- couldn't understand what was going -- I think she felt threatened or that I don't know but it but it she made an opening statement but then said she did she wouldn't talk about a so I can I just couldn't understand what was going and I got a previous guy Miller.
Wasn't it had information it was clear.
It's easy to pull teeth to get a good answer -- -- that -- good answer whatever that was a great way if you credits next the American tomorrow.
