“White House press secretary Jay Carney said Monday that Chief of Staff Dennis McDonough and other senior officials knew of the general nature of the report but decided to keep the president in the dark about the report’s finding that the IRS had targeted conservative groups for extra tax scrutiny. Carney said it was the White House counsel Kathryn Ruemmler’s judgment that the matter should not be told to the president, and that she conveyed this sentiment to senior staff.”
Congressman Pat Meehan’s facebook status:
“Is there no accountability in government anymore? In all of these scandals — the IRS, Benghazi, the AP wiretapping, Fast and Furious — we hear the same thing from the government officials involved: It’s not my fault… I wasn’t in the room… I have no recollection… I missed the meeting… Not my responsibility… I wasn’t aware… I recused myself… I only learned about it when you did.
What happened to accountability? Is anyone in this administration responsible for their actions?”
How about two other people who “didn’t know” when systematic abuses took place on their watch?Details
