First on CNN: House investigators questioning IRS Cincinnati workers

House investigators are interviewing two front-line Internal Revenue Service employees from the Cincinnati tax exempt office this week in Washington, and plan to interview two others next week, two congressional sources familiar with the investigation tell CNN.

House investigators are hoping these IRS employees will shed light on exactly why tea party and other conservative groups were inappropriately targeted for excess scrutiny when applying for tax exempt status.

    It's way bigger than Cincinnati. Somebody with tasking authority between executive agencies was coordinating concerted suppression of opposing viewpoints. Numerous individuals and organizations were targeted not just by Treasury's IRS, but also by Labor's OSHA and DoJ's ATF and FBI. This is concerted tyrranical oppression of political opposition, seizing taxpayer's earnings to fund their oppressor's. True Sons of Liberty, where are you now?

    That's because all the accusations, excuses and finger pointing is being exposed as that of a guilty conscience. The same thing happened in Nazi Germany. Did you know " Forward " was the slogan used by the HITLER YOUTH MOVEMENT?

      Let's live in the right now. The old "Hitler youth movement" was a joke and not a completely voluntary organization. To get along and help your parents stay in good standing with the authorities you kinda had to join. It was, if you will, a group similar to the Boy Scouts who were indoctrinated with Nazi propaganda.

    One cannot miss the connection that as Obama was squandering unprecedented amounts of cash while concurrently seeking to raise income tax brackets and expand IRS power into Obamacare enforcement, he was also seeking to abridge 2nd amendment rights to keep and bear arms to defend against a tyrranical government. 51% elected a banana republic third world totalitarian dictator! Washington, Jefferson, Madison... and cheeze whiz know-nothing totalitarian redistributor? How far we have fallen.

    Where was Obama, the night of Benghazi? And this? The IRS scandal? The end result of this and the other investigations will net 0 results. Its a cover up. Really! Who do know will TELL THE TRUTH ANYWAYS?

      Well, Jeff, if the cover-up is anywhere near as efficient for Bush's 50 plus failures with embassy attacks, I guess things will be equal, won't it? Hope Obama has the same spin doctors Bush had.

      Oh please. That's the most ignorant argument I've ever heard. Where were the investigations banaay? Nowhere. NowDeflect the issue of the Obama admin at all costs. I live in the past too when it comes to music, not flagrant political posture. Just terrible response after another. Give it another try babe (if your a guy)

      You said it, chrissy. Our imput isn't necessary as long as the Mouth of the Westies keeps up all of his personas. He'll soon change his name to support the POTUS, as he does all the time, thinking we'll be fooled.

    Lol. Im sayin! A true tool thats for sure. Funny tho how the 2 of them focus only on one thing and have totally missed that the "men in black" are keeping a very careful eye on media blog sites for persons who may be a threat to national security. And i would think they both fall into that category. It is public knowledge though so they may want to google it and check before they begin "chirping" again eh? Lmao

    Lol funny that the both of these fools missed the memo that media talk sites are being monitored for persons who may be a threat to security huh? Keep chirpin boys! Lol

    Lol no that would be you trollio with your obsession with pepperoni pizza. I do find it amusing that the cnn author of this particular thread is called "Bash" tho. And i also am waiting for evidence instead of supposition by the same people that publicly stated they were going to do their very best to discredit our POTUS! So far there hasnt been ANY evidence that Obama was aware of this prior to it going public! And i wouldnt trust the IRS any farther than i could throw them.
