Jay Carney Joke Of The Day: IRS Testimony Was Satisfying
Though Democratic and Republican lawmakers alike have expressed disdain over Internal Revenue Service officials’ dodgy answers to Congressional questions about the agency’s undue targeting of conservative groups, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney is satisfied with the responsiveness of the IRS to the matters of Congressional interest.
Lois Lerner, director of the IRS division in charge of the controversial program, invoked the 5th Amendment and refused to testify.
Former IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman was then grilled, but largely gave the same answers Senate lawmakers heard at an earlier hearing during which they threatened to appoint a special prosecutor if witnesses did not start to open up.
Of course, the White House is satisfied; that’s how a cover-up works.
