Liar, hypocrite and shameless waster of taxpayer dollars, Rep. Darrell Issa is desperate to rewrite the history of his own corrupt investigation of the manufactured IRS non-scandal. For the past several weeks, things have been looking down for the witch-hunter, since the facts (as they usually do) fly in the face of the fantasy world in which the right-wingers live.
Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) curb-checked Issa last month when in two bombshell interviews he disproved accusations that Tea Party groups were targeted by the IRS. Issa contended that the scrutiny was initiated directly by the Obama Administration, but Cummings destroyed that charge by providing transcripts stating the investigations were actually started by a conservative Republican at the IRS branch in Cleveland, OH.
Issa, undaunted, continued his witch hunt despite none of the facts supporting his allegations, and was hilariously mocked by Howard Dean who called him a “shameless propagandist” and Stephen Colbert, who said
“On Tuesday, Congressman Elijah Cummings released the full transcript to the press and it proved conclusively that Issa was right…to not want the transcripts released.”
And indeed, many Republicans are now being forced to admit that the IRS scandal has no legs.
Now Issa is trying to rewrite his own sordid past. Watch this disgusting liar get torn apart on The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell:
