CNN admits latest Lois Lerner email revelation makes it appear as if the IRS was involved in a conservative witch-hunt

June 26, 2014

 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.

    I was in college when the Watergate scandal broke, so I remember it well, and for the life of me, I can’t see why this is different. As Watergate started, it was just lower level staff thinking of ways to mess with the other side. As it got closer to the president, everything came down to recorded material. When it was first revealed “the information was missing”, that seemed to be the end of the matter. But because just two people kept interested, the result was an impeachment and Nixon left office. If Nixon had “lost” (made it disappear) that 15 minutes, politics would have been very different.
    So, why is the Lerner issue going so differently? Is it only the media’s involvement? Is it that the President is a liberal? I just don’t get it.

      It is different only because it is much, much worse!
