The House Oversight Committee IRS hearing got off to a start this morning with Rep. Darrell Issa noting that transcripts of interviews with Lois “Plead the Fifth” Lerner didn’t make it to everyone on the committee in a timely manner.
Wait a minute…IG supposedly provided transcripts of Lerner to the Ds but not Rs? He said he gave them to Rs but Issa said he d/n get them.

Cummings urges GOP to respect Lerner's right to plead the 5th. Issa refuses to allow transcripts of her previous interviews into record #IRS

Now the IG looks bad with response. IG apparently only gave transcripts to Dems…Issa PO'd.

So DARRELL ISSA wasn't given Documents submitted by the Treasury IG . This seems strange. Docs were submitted but missed Issa's Office. Hmm

Issa "Is there a way to get them (transcripts of IG interviews) to us in a way we know they are there??" I just sprained something laughing

How soon does Issa want that information?
Issa cracks joke about IRS and the amount of time they give taxpayers to respond to requests. Gallery laughs.
