-- -- IRS -- really attempted coverup is climbing -- not everyone is wondering how high -- it does go Republican senator Kelly got joins -- nice to see senator than Ecstasy -- -- -- -- -- they're investing in the IRS and one of the people who know something about it is this woman name -- pies and apparently she said -- when their dad interviewing -- lowers bad day in Cincinnati in the Harris here for a prosecutor what to think about this.
I think it's absurd Greta you would never conduct an objective investigation that way with someone who is going to be a witness.
To all this and also is a supervisor.
I mean think about it this is the person you report to.
And you're asking the people to be straight and you might have implicate her so I mean no one would conduct an investigation this way just doesn't make any sense.
We -- I I find particularly I confess is the fact that is that on the about the Friday before the IG report came out which showed the targeting.
Is that that lowest -- appears before some meeting at the American Bar Association something.
And she found some patsy some woman lawyers and asked me this question.
And and -- basically I mean I assume maybe you don't that I am I I thought that that was a deliberate efforts or take the wind out of the sails of the report make it look not as bad.
I think it was a complete set up.
And obviously it was completely contrived.
So they knew the IG report was coming up so we're gonna announce you know you've got bad news coming your gonna announce it first.
To try to break did an awesome they stage this they did this yeah I think they need this plot but they -- would be picked up in -- -- you were called that afternoon it was picked up.
And then it went from there.
Cat so that they could say they -- it themselves first but that whole thing was so contrived but -- but if you listen to at least the reports show that -- said in her interview.
Is that lowest -- that according to hers at Lewis that looks -- -- said to her that the head of the IRS.
Miller was well aware of this plots and there was nothing to prevent him from -- -- for the cameras not doing the stupid charade right just making the announcement that would have been you know that would have been more honorable than trying -- like we'll -- a lion and -- -- agency.
Doing that but it set it up with -- ABA to have someone asks you a question -- yard you know the answer to that you're gonna give out to make this big announcement.
And obviously to not have Miller -- the director come out and say it I mean the whole thing is not that's why I think the whole thing was just really.
Kind of a charade and how they just does it make you more suspicious the way they rolled it out or is it just -- -- clumsy handling of a PR event.
I think it's makes you more suspicious because.
It's one thing to clumsily -- a press conference words you're the director you're the responsible agent -- run give it.
But to have someone set up asking you a question at a conference.
Knowing it's gonna get picked up and doing it that way I mean you think about -- you had to actually plot this out crowd up.
It wasn't something where -- -- clumsily did something it was all -- out would you have thought that -- -- months before the first learned of the problem that that would have been a good times have plot on the solution -- to sort of admit what's going on that coming clean sort of do gamble think that would have been a much better way to -- it would have been the best way to handle it.
It would have been much more truthful way to handle it.
And frankly it -- I think made people feel less suspicious about what's happening right now but the more we found out the more questions there are I mean even with the recent testimony of -- -- How it contradicts.
What Miller and Lerner said about Washington's knowledge about what was happening.
They want to stick it to Cincinnati right and actually making far but the thing that she's reported Hussein and I haven't in the trenches myself but this -- -- -- Is said that she it she's reported -- -- that.
That she did at that -- that.
Eat in sort of rolling this out instead it was there was -- -- is being done by others mean she's like.
She clearly sort of sets herself -- herself from -- and she says that he only had a discussion it was about a brand like Kleenex but can you hear that only.
One liberal group vs 300 according to my last guest.
From what -- was she was trying to claim that the term Tea Party with some kind of generic term for just political groups in general.
Which to me just strikes me as very absurd nobody and I -- that she wouldn't be so bad if out of the 300 groups.
150 of them even hotter whatever balance -- -- -- only that but but this is.
If you look at the groups that were targeted.
It's clearly Tea Party patriots and 912 and you know if you can come up with a one you're lucky.
But hundreds on bad and and so you're right if there were balance that we might be able to believe that but in light of the facts it just isn't believable -- -- -- gonna back before the house committee -- -- you think she waved her -- Fifth Amendment from I clearly think she waived her Fifth Amendment you would never let a witness come and in any kind of criminal case give their side of the story and not be subject.
To cross examination be able to claim your fifth you know from trying cases it just wouldn't happen.
I think she really -- -- -- if she should she what she should -- take the fifth and gone outside centerpiece on the right she couldn't -- have -- and do that yeah -- she didn't.
And -- nice to see you thanks -- great student now.
