And there is new fallout for the Obama administration there's a new Fox News Paul.
That shows that a vast majority of Americans want congress to dig further.
Into these three big scandal stories look at these numbers 78%.
Think that congress should continue investigating the IRS targeting of conservative groups.
Want the Justice Department's monitoring of journalists investigate it.
And on -- -- look at that number remember when everybody thought that was -- story that should go away.
Still want more answers on Ben Ghazi.
But there is the anchor a special report here on Fox News and he joins me now but -- -- pretty big numbers.
They are Martha they're they're really big numbers and people on Capitol Hill I think look at those numbers.
And of course one side fields feels emboldened and the other side perhaps.
A little bit concerned with the public sentiment about these investigations you your ride a number of a Democrats -- spent specifically on Ben -- have said.
This is a done deal it's time to move on.
But others have talked about the DOJ and the IRS in the same way.
Those numbers change that dynamic let me just.
Bring you a couple of other numbers in there.
In this poll believe the President Obama did not try to rescue those and in Gaza because of political concerns you didn't want to risk reelection.
Believe that -- Obama's Justice Department seized those records reporters' records for political reasons.
Compared to point 9% -- take the administration's national security argument.
To be true and 68%.
Believe the White House is not telling the truth about targeting.
Political enemies by the RS that's and just 24%.
Believe the White House line that.
The team Obama neither directed nor was aware of the targeting that's internal on the all of those three scandals -- That's big.
That they are incredible numbers really when you look at them and you get into the that the background on them.
As you just did it -- let's take a listen -- a look at what one more actually this is on transparency.
In terms of how transparent is the Obama administration more or less transparent than previous administrations as a question.
And 39% say it's the same no different at all which certainly was not the goal of candidate Obama.
Less transparent 35% say it's less transparent than prior administrations.
And the numbers gone from there and let let's play -- candidate Obama out on the trail back in 2008.
This is what he said.
What I want to do is maintain.
Community that we've built.
And I want people -- keep challenging me impressing me.
And I wanna create a a White House that is more transparent.
Where and any government we've seen before.
You know last time -- -- Charles Krauthammer said you know the president is to get out there -- used it to be a leader and take these issues and talk to people about what's going on.
-- out you know you add that up so it's 74%.
Believe it's -- the same or less transparent than George W.
Bush you said.
You know eight years ago.
Is this going to be the case.
You know as you're in the heat of Democrats attacking that bush administration for not being transparent.
I think no one would have believed that especially after the first term President Obama.
Where people were.
You know excited about the possibility of transparency.
I don't think many Democrats would agree that's this White House has been transparent and I think that's translated in those numbers.
I don't know if the president coming out can dress all of this because he's been reticent to do that.
-- -- -- on each one of these things.
Yeah I am but but does -- I guess is the question now.
He may have to be discussing mess in the -- -- you know is this a time to come out.
And talk about some of these things I -- the easiest one it would appear would be the NSA to come out and say look -- -- We're very effective were doing this in a way that's protecting the American people I mean is that Brett you know politically the most likely want to take on first.
Well I think Charles made -- good point last night that it would and and Steve Hayes I think reiterated this morning on your show that that it would go.
In part against some of the things she said in that big national security counterterrorism speech he gave just a couple of weeks ago.
In which he said the threat you know had evolved and it's not really the same pre 9/11.
This would suggest that the threat is very real we need to take it seriously and so much to is happening.
That we need to collect all these records and and try to stop terrorists.
And then flaws in that system as we have been talking about here this morning Brett thank you very much.
Big show tonight no doubt there's so much to talk about and we're watching tonight.
-- special report every weeknight at 6 PM eastern it is appointment viewing here on the Fox News Channel thank you Brett.
