White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler was told on April 24 about an upcoming report by the Treasury's Inspector General for Tax Administration on the IRS practice for which an IRS official apologized on May 10 triggering the controversy.

Soon after she learned of the report, Ruemmler briefed White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough and other senior staff, White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters at a briefing.

Both are being called to testify next week.

Immigration.

The downfall of the Republican Party.

If they pass it, they will please Hispanics & Give Obama another major victory.

If they don't pass it, they will continue to lose the Hispanic Vote & lose all credibility on the immigration issue.

If it passes the Senate with good bipartisan support & not the House, Republicans could lose the House in 2014.

Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz said Wednesday that Lois Lerner, the IRS official who oversaw exempt organizations during the admitted targeting of conservative political groups, could be held in contempt and even go to jail after her appearance at a congressional hearing earlier in the day.
Lerner made a brief opening statement insisting she had "done nothing wrong" before invoking her Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate herself. Some legal scholars, including Dershowitz, have said that in giving the opening statement, Lerner may have waived her Fifth Amendment protections.
"She's in trouble. She can be held in contempt," Dershowitz told "the Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV. "Congress ... can actually hold you in contempt and put you in the Congressional jail."
Dershowitz, who helped advise O.J. Simpson's defense team, said Lerner "should never have been allowed" to make her opening statement.
"You can't simply make statements about a subject and then plead the Fifth in response to questions about the very same subject," Dershowitz said. "Once you open the door to an area of inquiry, you have waived your Fifth Amendment right... you've waived your self-incrimination right on that subject matter."

He made that statement to a talking head on Newsmax TV. What happened to the good law professor's punditry gig on FOX? Or will any conservative media company do?

These are documented events that should not have happened.
-we cannot have the IRS targeting certain political groups
-we cannot have the DOJ claiming reporters are criminals in order to get a hold of private emails
-we cannot have security of our diplomats be a bumbled mess were there was no leaders

Anyone who tries to dismiss this as "witch hunt" is a Progressive butt kisser who doesn't care about individual freedoms and rights and deserves any ridicule heaped on him.

How stupid is the Tea Party?
Thev file for a tax exempt status reserved for non profit organization that advocate for social issues. Their main concern cannot be politics.
So these dumbasses in the Tea Party apply for this status using the name "Tea Party ThIs" or Tea Party that"
They announce their political agenda & then cry about it when the IRS sees this & knows they may not qualify.
Then the dumbasses whine to Congress & the Whiner-in -chief Issa jumps in to start yet another investigation.
This is just how stupid the Tea Party is.
The democrats like of Rev. Wright and Black Panther Farrakhan as "good ol boys" terrorist in the Obama crowd eh RealDave.. LOL and you are ragging on the Tea Party...

The same poll that approves of Republican's handling of the scandals.
Actually, other polls support the investigations into the scandals but NOT all are outliers for Obama.
That's only among republicans. But, if you include everyone, democrats, independents, and establishment conservatives in your polling then only 8% approve of republicans' handling of the "scandals" and even less approve of their stonewalling on getting anything done to move past sequestration to passing a budget and raising the U S debt limit(our time-honored tradition of paying our bills).

1 trillion dollar stimulus was passed in 2009--and yet a bridge collapses in Washington. Shovel shit ready jobs...remember...
The report also suggested that nearly 400,000 jobs could be created by building and repairing roads, schools and bridges. More than 200,000 jobs could be created in health care, particularly by creating a nationwide system of computerized medical records.
