I caught a little of the “testimony” being offered by IRS Acting Commissioner Steven Miller to the House Ways and Means Committee. It had to have been the most dishonest, disingenuous performance we have seen in a long, long time. Miller would not have given them a straight and honest answer if they asked him whether the sky was blue or the sun would come up in the morning. He continually offered lawyerly and artful responses that danced as close as possible to avoiding a criminal investigation for perjury, while still not giving anything resembling the truth.
After watching just a few minutes, I had to turn the TV off so that I would not throw up.
Apparently, I was not the only one with that reaction. Here is Pennsylvania Congressman Mike Kelly, responding to Steven Miller. Note the applause at the end of his response.
With any more performances like Steven Miller’s, Obama and his minions will be seeing jail time over this scandal, whether they are guilty or not. People will put up with a lot of things, but they will not put up with being lied to in the face. The White House would be wise to send people willing to come clean on this matter.
