Now that the White House has labeled it a “phony scandal” apparently they feel free to obstruct the investigation. The IRS actions are nothing less than stonewalling. According the House Oversight and Government Reform committee:
o The IRS originally identified over 64 million pages of responsive documents and has revised that number down to 660,000 responsive documents, but has produced to the Committee only about 12,000 pages.
o Approximately 2,500 pages are fully redacted and a significant portion of the remaining pages are duplicative.
o The IRS – without consulting with House Committees – unilaterally limited the date range for searching relevant documents and appears to have unilaterally narrowed the search terms from 81 agreed-upon terms to a subset of only 12 terms.
Big government liberals were initially troubled by the IRS Scandal and wanted to get to the bottom of it. But now when it comes time to actually investigate they are stonewalling and President Obama is calling it a “phony scandal.”
Thank you Chairman Issa for staying on top of this and working to get to the bottom of it.
