Dem. Congressman Wants Issa Held In Contempt of Congress

Oh for Chrissakes.
Via CNS News:
“The only reason we haven’t been able to get the truth from Lois Lerner is because of one person. And that is our chairman,” Rep. Steve Horsford (D-Nev.) told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday, as the panel considered a contempt of Congress resolution against the former IRS official.
“So if my colleagues want to hold someone in contempt, maybe they should look to the person holding the gavel, since it’s his poor handling of this investigation that has resulted in why we can’t get the truth that the people deserve.”
Horsford said the contempt resolution against Lerner “does nothing to get the truth” for conservatives who believe they were inappropriately scrutinized by the IRS, and it does nothing to reassure the public, which deserves the Oversight Committee “to act in a fair and impartial manner.”
He noted the committee has interviewed 39 witnesses, reviewed more than 450,000 pages of documents, and the IRS has spent at least $14 million so far — “and there’s absolutely no evidence to support the chairman’s accusations that Miss Lerner orchestrated any IRS targeting.”
Horsford complained that some of his questions can’t be answered because of the way Issa ran the investigation.

Thank You CNSNews and Zip.
