Well it's been a brutal week of course for the IRS spending scandals targeting scandals leaking private taxi info wacky videos.
-- it all going where is it all lead.
Will -- end.
-- Goldberg is editor at large for national review online -- Fox News contributor -- good to see so.
Almost fifty million dollars in -- my money your money taxpayer money.
Of all Americans.
Fought -- conference is in just two years.
Why did they even have one conference off sight it just doesn't make sense.
I think he could say that they could have a conference every now and then but the the the wild mismatch of the spending with the with the necessity is is just sort of part of the problem and does contribute to this idea.
That you know this is IRS agents gone wild.
And so far by far my favorite thing about this which really highlights.
The panicked at the IRS is in the crisis that there and it -- inspector general found out that the higher -- couldn't find its receipts.
Fortunately the Olympics and since you know what is -- -- Tom Wolfe novel it's just it's too good.
You know that that's classic -- let me move on because I'm gonna talk to a committee member in the next hour.
And we're gonna.
Dispel some of the myths about the spending and expose some of the other truths but look and the other big news story has been.
What I think may turn out to be to whistle blowers in the Cincinnati office of the IRS -- now come forward and told congressional lawyers.
It was a -- we weren't the ones who were targeting it was -- didn't.
And lawyers for the IRS they are the ones who were targeting in the Tea Party.
And when they heard some of the testimony these two workers in Cincinnati were outraged in fact one of them said.
Quote I was furious.
It looked like lowest Warner was putting it on she called it ridiculous.
She was so angry she demanded a transfer.
So John is this not only contradicts -- Lerner.
But it contradicts the sworn testimony.
Shoulder -- as well is Steve Miller.
And it doesn't it also make the inspector general's.
Ridiculous because he's a wanna -- -- now it's stopped in Cincinnati.
Right and that raises a very important point though the White House is a desperate.
To say that the inspector general audit which is very different than an investigation.
Is all we need to know.
And -- got -- there I don't think.
But he -- limited by what he was allowed to do it and the people he interviewed had their supervisors.
In the room.
Which is why it may not be right to call these two Cincinnati employees whistle -- it may just be that this is the first time they actually had to tell the truth.
Without their bosses in the room and the story when you get from these people when they're under oath.
And -- and not under pressure from above.
Is very different than the white wash that we've gotten so far and that's why you actually need a real investigation to go all way through this.
And not have a sort of the White House -- the democratic version of this which simply says we know all we need to know let's move forward let's talk about how to fix this problem.
We don't really know what happened we still don't know who ordered this all we do know that the -- they came at a -- -- and her associates of the in the leadership.
Was flatly untrue and that's why she's pled the fifth.
There's a new Bloomberg pull out John oh and nearly half of Americans do not believe the president.
And he says he eat you know anything out about the IRS targeting 47%.
Say we just don't believe -- only 40%.
Thought what's the political impact on the White House the president his agenda well.
We know that the White House considers this the story -- -- pretty radioactive which is one reason why David -- You know one of the chief spinners of of the entire communication shop.
You know went hammer and -- after Darrell Issa.
Attacking him personally.
August I think they were they recognize that they -- that that this is a real problem for -- -- and it undermines almost the entire rationale of the Obama.
Administration that they are competent managers.
That the government can do all of these wonderful things.
And I think it's a real problem we don't know that this -- it Obama all we do know so far in terms of Obama's culpability on all of us.
He did absolutely nothing to stop this you had you know congress pointing this out for a long time -- journalistic reports on this.
And they did nothing and that doesn't mean he ordered it but you know -- a -- watches a building burned long enough without doing anything.
He sort of part of the problem and not part of the solution and I Jenna Goldberg thanks so much good to see you.
