But was it really just incompetence or an abuse of power either way our next guest says it is frightening for America.
Florida senator Marco Rubio joins us live scores weren't you -- much from them.
Good morning also we've got this breaking news this morning and that apparently the federal government.
Remember the president said this would be the most -- transparent administration ever.
Apparently Barack Obama's administration.
Ten departments have not yet released their -- they're using secret government email accounts.
And the problem with that is senator.
If -- secret when somebody wants to look into them like we'd like to get the IRS email accounts and stuff like that if you don't know their secret.
You can't ask for -- with the supreme.
Down that's our -- beyond that I think this administration should take the lead in being forthcoming about all of us.
I would like them to see them to be more proactive about again an all out there get it all out there are now if there's nothing to hide in fact that they're claiming is that this was -- confidence not this is deliberate.
They get all the information out there quickly and let's dispose of this once and for all sold in fact their email accounts like that out there and more like him.
The administration should be proactive about getting these things out there since.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- That that the tea parties if the Tea Party was and strong in 2010.
It affected the election.
In 2010 or twelve I'm -- twelve excuse me.
Yeah well listen I think a couple things and I wouldn't say that at the national level there might have been local places where some of these organizations -- we're trying to get going couldn't get going.
And -- was the intention here by the way and in fact this was done deliberately you look at -- this was applied.
The big organizations the big mega you know -- and so forth.
Many of them didn't go through these problems and even -- they did.
They can afford to hire the best election lawyers in the country to navigate all of us it was the smaller in the mid size ones the -- started -- a small community about fifty people -- a hundred people.
They're the ones -- got put through the -- here and a lot of people we don't know how many people just dropped out just that you know what forget it I'm not gonna start organization it's too hard to do it.
And and so we need to figure out whether that was done intentionally but I think it's also a lesson on what happens when government gets too big.
Big government doesn't hurt the big companies and the people who have made it that may not like it but they can afford to deal with -- it hurts the small and midsize companies and in this case the small and -- political groups.
You know what senator in addition to having you on today -- Ingram always joins us on.
On Tuesday at this time she's straight -- from not far from understand and are.
What do you make of this secret email thing that apparently is is cooking right now in the administration.
And I hope we're waiting for President Obama to take the lead on that's I think we're gonna have a very long way.
It it begs the question.
Why haven't you with the understanding is that they needed these secret email accounts because.
There email official email was still look a lot of extraneous -- it was overloaded with too much email well.
What we all deal -- and I everyday lives and it's ridiculous.
Clearly they want to make it more difficult for people to track what's going on behind closed doors and senator rubio is exactly right this demonstrates why big government initiatives big government got big bureaucracy he's -- -- the administrative agencies.
Have got to be shrunk.
The spending has got to be -- in Washington and the people have to have a bird's eye view.
Of what goes on behind closed doors whether it's an issue that we're talking about now of the IRS or frankly issues like senator rubio deals with an immigration reform we want.
Bought some light to shine and we want and I was -- at home we want to know what deals are being cut.
And that we need to know the public has a right now this country is in big trouble across the board and we want real answers and I'm glad I'm glad we're on this topic.
That's right we'll get immigration and just of Atlanta but -- Arabia want to talk about air colder.
-- ignoring congressional requests and has actually had a staffer.
For the Department of Justice come forward and say that they do back what he he is saying that he did not indeed lied to congress when he said that he wasn't sure about.
Potential prosecution against James Rosen what do you make of all this.
Well look I call for his resignation a year ago after fast and furious and that what we need to understand about the attorney general's job is the top law enforcement job in the country so much of it depends on the credibility and the trust that people haven't willingness to do the job right.
-- I think Eric Holder has had that for quite awhile but he definitely no longer has that now.
We saw -- reports yesterday that there apparently are people in the west wing that would like to see him move on I think it's time for Eric Holder to step aside quite frankly for the good of this president.
Who because he I think -- -- longer effectively serve this president.
He is people simply don't have the confidence and and what he's saying they're doing anymore and I think that's growing by the day.
I think that's very important that the chief law enforcement officer of the United States of America.
Be someone that people have confidence and that there ability to do the job and impartial and fair way and I just don't think that's there anymore when it comes to mr.
holder -- Lorie.
On your radio show you had big exclusive with senator Isaacson regarding mr.
holder hearing is with Greta.
Repeating what he had -- on your program with some of -- I voted for Eric Holder but Eric holder's actions since that time.
-- proven that vote to have been wrong in terms of fast and furious in terms of not prosecuting voter intimidation in Philadelphia.
Terms of what's happened in terms of the press here he is just not proven himself be worthy in my judgment.
Representing the president United States you or me and the American people's attorney general.
