Rep. Elijah Cummings, the ranking Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, declared on Sunday morning that the IRS scandal has been “solved” and said it’s time to “move on.” Yeah, nothing to see here, just move along.
“Based upon everything I’ve seen the case is solved,” he said. “And if it were me, I would wrap this case up and move on, to be frank with you.”
The Congressman pointed out that the Inspector General made some recommendations that are now being adopted by the IRS. He added that new IRS Acting Commissioner Daniel Werfel was “doing a great job.”
“I think we’re in great shape,” he finished.
Cummings also brought up an allegedly conservative republican IRS manager who was not named who said there were no political considerations given to the targeting of conservative groups. As if that’s supposed to settle it. Said unnamed manager never worked for or donated money to any conservative republican candidates, but we’re just supposed to take his or her word for it.
