NBC's Lisa Myers reported this morning that the IRS deliberately chose not to reveal that it had wrongly targeted conservative groups until after the 2012 presidential election:

(Video at the link)

The IRS commissioner "has known for at least a year that this was going on," said Myers, "and that this had happened. And did he share any of that information with the White House? But even more importantly, Congress is going to ask him, why did you mislead us for an entire year? Members of Congress were saying conservatives are being targeted. What's going on here? The IRS denied it. Then when -- after these officials are briefed by the IG that this is going on, they don't disclose it. In fact, the commissioner sent a letter to Congress in September on this subject and did not reveal this. Imagine if we -- if you can -- what would have happened if this fact came out in September 2012, in the middle of a presidential election? The terrain would have looked very different."

Yep. Rangel and Ryan were tearing it up in this morning's hearing. The Treasurer refused to admit he misled Congress.

Outgoing Democrat Senator Max Baucus says there's much more to come.
Special prosecutor by the 4th of July, perhaps?

Illegal suppression of the grass-roots organization and fund-raising abilities of your political opponent?

Can I hear the "I" word?

Not that Nixon didn't deserve what he got, but this makes Nixon look clean by comparison.

Hopefully you are correct.

The Chicago bath house boy continues to be the Teflon POTUS.

I can only hope that Hill and Bill are real mad.
