Republicans release IRS transcripts amidst growing controversy – Dan Lothian reports

Chairman of the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif has released partial transcripts into the IRS scandal regarding Tea Party applications. IRS workers in Cincinnati are heard "telling congressional investigators about why they targeted conservative groups," Dan Lothian reports.

“But two democratic sources involved complain Issa released the transcripts before making them available to democrats in what they say is supposed to be a bipartisan investigation,” he says. “The sources tell CNN the excerpts are taken out of context, and Issa's claim they indicate direction from Washington is misleading.”

    CNN, make me proud and follow the IRS scandal more closely and bipartisan ! Remember the IRS has the power to silence anyone, including you. When an IRS employee says "I believe so", referring to Washington involvement, the question from Carney should have been: "Who could "he" be referring to?" The IRS employee has more to loss if he is lying, so Carney should have given the report more validity. Carney should be less partial to President Obama, at least when hosting.
