During his Super Bowl interview with Fox’s Bill O’Reilly, President Obama claimed that there isn’t a “smidgen of corruption” in the IRS abuse scandal. O’Reilly failed to follow up with a question that could trouble the president’s take.
During House testimony today, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) tore the president’s take to shreds. Take a look.
Gowdy notes that to date, not a single person from any of the targeted groups have been interviewed by the FBI. Not one. Three have been asked, but none have been interviewed yet.
Gowdy also notes something that we and others noted right after the interview: If there was no corruption, why did IRS official Lois Lerner take the Fifth Amendment and refuse to testify?
