Mitch McConnell and Dave Camp from Meet the Press this morning.
Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell said the IRS controversy amounted to evidence of a "culture of intimidation" by the administration. But he and Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., admitted they lacked evidence that the targeting of conservatives was ordered by the White House.
"We don't have anything to say that the president knew about it," said Camp, who chairs the House committee looking into the IRS controversy, on NBC's "Meet the Press."
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky cites examples of what he sees as political maneuvering by the Obama administration.
McConnell also could not point to evidence of presidential involvement in the IRS's scrutinizing of conservatives, though the Kentucky senator argued that a need for more information justified emerging investigations into the controversy.
"I don't think we know what the facts are," he said, appearing separately on "Meet the Press" on Sunday. "The investigation has just begun, so I'm not going to reach a conclusion about what we may find."
So, in summary:
1. We don't have a shred of evidence that ties either Obama or the WH to the IRS issues.
2. We don't even know what the facts are, but we're going to keep digging (read: making shit up) until it matches our narrative.
And for some reason that they aren't even able to explain, this above factors create a "culture of intimidation" by the Obama administration that the American people should all be outraged about.
There isn't a
big enough anymore.
