BOMBSHELL: Tea Party Targeting Initiated By a CONSERVATIVE at IRS! (Video)

In two bombshell interviews over the weekend, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) contested Darrell Issa’s accusation that alleged Tea Party group targeting by the IRS was started in Washington D.C. by the Obama Administration.

According to Rep. Cummings,

“We have a situation here where we now have interviewed the manager of the exempt office in Cincinnati of the IRS.  He is a conservative, 21-year veteran who spent six hours with our committee the other day talking in an interview and he explained to us that this Tea Party situation started with one case back in 2010 somebody, one of his screeners, brought it to him, he looked at it and said–he said–we must send this to the technical office in Washington, because this is high-profile, this is a unique situation and we want to have consistency. So Washington’s IRS office technical office did not ask him for the case, he sent it.”

And, in an interview with Candy Crowley on Sunday morning, Rep. Cummings called Darrell Issa’s bluff and promised to release a transcript, that includes testimony absolving the White House of any wrongdoing in the IRS scandal, by the end of the week if Issa refuses.

Here’s the exchange:

CUMMINGS:  “I want those transcripts to be released.  But he’s [Issa] the chairman of the committee.  We’re not in power.  Now, if he does not release them, I will.”

CROWLEY:  “Can we get some sort of transcript?”

CUMMINGS:  “I’ll release them by the end of the week.”

Americans Against The Tea Party is a group committed to exposing the Tea Party’s lies, violence, racism, ignorance, intolerance, bigotry, and corporatist fascist efforts to subvert our democratic process – and we are organizing to defeat Tea Party/GOP candidates on ballots everywhere.


  1. How the hell does an idiot like Issa, an investigated possible felon get elected in California? Hmmmmm, they did elect Ronnie and the Terminator too. A strange state that historically supports democratic presidents and senators. They must have some severely gerry mandered districts there to send complete fools to the house. I have not seen 1 effort or bill composed by repubs that addresses our country’s greater needs. Always trying to create scandels to smoke their inability and sworn effort to slam the dems and the prez at every opportunity. Never mind what they were sent there to do. Legislate…….. compromise………. agree or agree to disagree. Then get back to work out a bi partisan compromise. Used to be a common effort. We have seen more judicial nominations and cabinent appointees fillibustered in the last 4 yrs than the previous 40 yrs combined. Is that legislation? Obstruction, Or corruption?

    • Mike, the problem is that they think they ARE doing the job they were sent to do. They believe that they were sent to D.C. to remove the President from office or, failing that, obstruct and prevent him from doing anything meaningful.

  2. They need to read what the law truly says in 1950 and word change in 1959. Which has caused all this mess. What happened to doing research?

    …the job they are PAID to do…

  4. When I first saw this story this morning I thought that we now had something that would force Issa to wipe the egg off his face and let go of this non issue. Then I continued to read and sure enough, true to form he still had his teeth sunken firmly into that bone and was not going to let it go. He admits that this supervisor, the person who actually initiated the process, says nothing that contradicts anything that anyone else has said and yet he will not admit that there is no scandal. It is way past time that these people stopped trying to find a way to discredit the President who, unlike them is an honorable man, and get back to doing the work of the people. You know, the job they were sent to D.C. to do!
