Last week, outgoing fake-fired IRS acting chief Steven Miller admitted that Lois Lerner’s apology started with a planted question. Today, Miller admitted that planting the question was his idea.


Miller made the admission in a Senate hearing today. During the House IRS scandal hearing last week, Miller was evasive about the planted question.

QUESTION: Did you or any of your subordinates direct Ms. Lerner to make the public statement at the panel discussion acknowledging the targeting of tax-exempt groups?
MILLER: Um, it was a prepared Q&A.

Today Miller acknowledged that it was a Q&A that sprang from his mind, also allowing that it was an “incredibly bad idea.”

It has taken two rounds of hearings after the fake apology with the fake-fired commissioner just to get this one admission out of Miller. This scandal isn’t going away anytime soon, nor should it.

Now the question is why did he plant the question ? and why did he open the pandora box ?
If it is "his" idea he knows why.
