Yes, acting IRS commissioner Steven Miller testified that the “be on the lookout” list maintained by the IRS to target conservative groups was “absolutely not illegal.” Oh, it “shouldn’t happen” and stuff, he said in response to Rep. Tom Price’s question. But “horrible customer service” isn’t illegal, guys!
Hey, can one of the congressmen grilling Miller follow up with this question?
How ’bout that? Now Miller just isn’t sure. It’s not his “area.”
