“Obama IRS Scandal: Acting Director Of Tax Agency Resigns”


THE HUFFINGTON POST

By Sam Stein

 

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama announced on Wednesday that Steven Miller, the acting director of the Internal Revenue Service, had resigned amid criticism over the tax agency’s handling of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status.

Speaking from the White House’s East Room, the president said that he had instructed Treasury Secretary Jack Lew to hold the IRS accountable for its missteps, revealed in a Treasury Department inspector general’s report released on Tuesday. Among the steps Lew took was to request and accept “the resignation of the acting commissioner of the IRS.”

“It is important to institute new leadership that can help restore confidence going forward,” said Obama.

The president also said that he had instructed Lew to implement the recommendations of the inspector general’s report which looked into why groups with words like “tea party” in their name had been forced to endure more scrutiny when applying for 501(c)(4) status. Obama added that he would “work with Congress as it performs its oversight role” in investigating the IRS.

CNN

First on CNN: The White House released 100 pages of e-mails that detailed the back and forth between the CIA, State Department and the White House in developing talking points following the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

According to senior Obama administration officials, the e-mails demonstrate that the process of developing the so-called talking points was not focused on politics but rather on events. The e-mails indicate that the CIA was likely the lead organization on developing the talking points, with the State Department recommending significant changes.

U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the attacks on September 11, 2012.

“Congressman Adam Smith Highlights Fox’s Partisan Obsession With The Benghazi Talking Points”


News Hounds

“Posted by Ellen

Fox News “liberal DemocratDennis Kucinich could have (and should have) taken a lesson from Rep. Adam Smith (D-WA) today when he appeared on Fox News Sunday to discuss the Benghazi controversy before Kucinich did. Unlike Kucinich, Smith was able to both raise questions that still need to be answered about Benghazi and defend against the partisan witch hunt that Republicans have turned Benghazi into – with Fox News’ enthusiastic participation.
