Boehner: IRS scandal touches Oval Office
Everyone knows it comes right from Obama. The problem is finding the proof.
Check it out:
House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, says it’s inconceivable President Obama did not know about the Internal Revenue Service decision to arbitrarily discriminate against conservative, tea-party and Christian organizations with invasive and probably illegal delays and questioning.
“It just doesn’t pass the straight-face test,” he said on a recent “Good Morning America” appearance. “How could – how can your chief of staff – your general counsel know, and you not know?”
The suggestion comes even as the IRS scandal that horrified the nation and already has brought a series of legal cases against the federal agency was being overshadowed by another scandal, the revelations of Obama’s spying on American citizens and their telephone and Internet records.
But Boehner insisted Congress will hold the IRS accountable.
