CNN admits latest Lois Lerner email revelation makes it appear as if the IRS was involved in a conservative witch-hunt
A CNN panel admitted today that the newly released email which showed Lois Lerner inquiring about auditing Charles Grassley makes it appear as if the IRS was involved in a witch-hunt against political opponents.
Here is part of that discussion:
Host John King stated that the revelation “does not help [Lerner’s] case, which is already pretty bad to begin with,” and “makes it hard for the White House saying this is Republicans trying to make a big partisan issue out of a mistake.” Politico’s Manu Raju argued that the news “fuels the suspicion that there that there’s a political witch-hunt motivated by politics,” and is “exactly what the administration does not want, which is more evidence showing that there was some political mess going around going after Republican groups.”
And now they are even questioning what is in the emails which conveniently disappeared:
The Associated Press’ Julie Pace added that the new evidence “raises the question of ‘if this is something in the e-mails that we have, what’s in the e-mails that have disappeared?’”
Really? You don’t say? You guys are a little late to the party, but welcome anyway.
