STONEWALL: The Hill: House Republicans see long slog ahead for probes of IRS targeting. “Bipartisan investigators from House Oversight and House Ways and Means into the IRS have already interviewed IRS officials from both Washington and the Cincinnati office that deals with tax-exempt applications. According to a source close to the investigation, House investigators sat down on Friday with Carter Hull, a Washington-based lawyer for the IRS who an Ohio staffer said was heavily involved in dealing with Tea Party applications. . . . Top GOP lawmakers say anger at the IRS remains strong, both from voters and members who believe that former agency officials were less than forthcoming with Congress in their public testimony. Republicans are also frustrated that the IRS has missed deadlines for requested documents.”
