McConnell: IRS scandal may have “jumped” to the White House
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who has been speculating about the White House's role in the IRS scandal since the story broke, said Tuesday that we can't be sure if the White House is involved, “So, this morning, I’m calling on the president to make available, completely and without restriction, everyone who can answer the questions we have as to what was going on at the IRS, who knew about it, and how high it went."
“What we don’t know at this point is whether it jumped the fence from the IRS to the White House,” McConnell said on the Senate floor on Tuesday, according to the Washington Post. “But we do know this: We can’t count on the administration to be forthcoming about the details of this scandal — because so far they’ve been anything but.”
He continued: "No more stonewalling, no more incomplete answers, no more misleading responses, no holding back witnesses, no matter how senior their current or former positions — we need full transparency and cooperation.”
