Monday night at the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing on the Internal Revenue Service losing the emails of embattled official Lois Lerner, committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) expressed his disapproval of IRS Commissioner John Koskinen.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) pressed Koskinen on why it was, “OK to tell the White House but not the people’s house?”
“The White House is not going to do what the ways and means committee did with a piece information we gave them – piecemeal – that is they are not going to make a bid issue about it until all the facts are out,” Koskinen replied.
Issa claimed time back to grill the commissioner asking if he was aware the White House “selectively leaks” ‘piecemeal” documents when it favors their position and ended his remarks by saying he was “a little insulted” at the suggestion the “White House is trustworthy but Congress isn’t.”
