Hmmmm..Were the latest problems at the IRS “naturally discovered”
You may recall that the IRS scandal emerged in unusual fashion: an acknowledgement of it by an IRS official during a Q&A at a tax lawyers conference in Washington a week ago today. (TPM’s Eric Lach reported earlier this week on the circumstances of the revelation and how stunned members of the audience were when it happened.)
Today, under questioning from Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), acting IRS Director Steven Miller seemed to acknowledge that the question in the Q&A was planted. But his answer wasn’t entirely clear, and Nunes oddly failed to follow up. More soon.
