IRS bombshell: tea party applications ordered sent to Obama-appointee’s office (Video)

Media reports say that lawmakers on the House Oversight Committee are looking to take the investigation in that direction next. And Fox news quotes Utah’s Jason Chaffetz on Friday:

“We’ve got to untangle the lies and misdirection that came out of the White House. I really take issue in how the White House has tried to blame this on two rogue agents … and it just never was the case.”

Peggy Noonan offered a recap of events in her column at the WSJ. She credits one representative, Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, for waking everyone up with what he called “the evolution of defense” on the scandal.
