IRS chief eviscerated in ‘You lie!’ moment

Liberals seem to love lying about everything and anything.
Check it out:

In perhaps the most explosive exchange yet in the IRS hearings, a key GOP lawmaker essentially accused the head of the IRS of lying to Congress to cover up the scandal.

At issue was why IRS Commissioner John Koskinen had waited from April until June before informing Congress that two years of Lois Lerner’s emails had been lost and that her hard drive had crashed.

“My theory is this, Mr. Koskinen, you guys weren’t ever gonna tell us until we caught you,” House Oversight subcommittee Chairman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, pointedly told Koskinen.

“And we caught you because Judicial Watch did a FOIA request,” he added.

The line of questioning began with Jordan asking, “Why didn’t you tell us in April? Why’d you wait two months?”

The IRS chief said his motive was to first produce all of Lerner’s emails that the agency possessed.

So, Jordan wondered, why did the IRS reveal Lerner’s hard drive had supposedly crashed, causing the loss of two years of emails, to the Senate Finance Committee on June 13? Why not some other date?

After Koskinen said something to the effect that the occasion seemed right, Jordan countered sharply: “I think it is something different. I think you were never going to tell us.”
