House Speaker John Boehner asks, “My Question Isn’t About Who’s Going to Resign; My Question Is Who’s Going to Jail?” over the IRS scandal.
The Justice Department is opening a critical investigation, but the White House is claiming there was no knowledge, and President Barack Obama was still speaking in conditional phrases, saying “if the IRS did what it did” even after the IRS already admitted to targeting certain conservative groups for closer scrutiny.
Going back to 2012 targeted groups complained to various members of Congress. In response, a congressional committee asked Shulman about the allegations. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Commissioner Douglas Shulman told the committee that the agency wasn’t targeting conservative groups — in fact saying, “There is absolutely no targeting.”
In early May 2013, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration released a report confirming the targetings to congressional investigators but not to the public. On May 10, 2013, Lois Lerner, head of the IRS tax-exempt-organizations division, said the agency was “apologetic” for what she termed “absolutely inappropriate” actions.
On May 15, 2013 the full report Inappropriate Criteria Were Used to Identify Tax-Exempt Applications for Review (dated May 14, 2013) was released.
