The poor folks from the IRS just can’t catch a break…

Rep. Cummings apologizes

Democratic Congressman Elijah Cummings took a few minutes during Monday night’s IRS hearing to apologize to IRS Commissioner John Koskinen for putting him through “hell” by subjecting him to a politically-motivated hearing instead of one concerned with the facts. He opened by saying, “I thank you from the depths of my heart.”

Cummings got emotional as he thanked Koskinen and went off on the GOP, saying, “Some of the statements that have been made here today make it look like, you know, you’re just coming up here, trying to fool people, when under Republican and Democratic administrations, you have been highly regarded.”

Cummings scolded his fellow committee members and got angrier as he continued.

“I appreciate you coming into this institution, giving it the best you’ve got, and then having to come in here and go through this hell!”

Yeah, all the IRS did was target Americans they disagreed with politically, stonewall any investigation into that, retire the individual involved (who plead the 5th on this matter) and then delete the records pertaining to those actions.

Yeesh.

Leave them alone…

  1. I guess an apology at this type of hearing proves how partisan it really is. He should be apologizing to Americans who have lost so much at the hands of this very partisan IRS. And what about the people who have been mercilessly tormented by these corrupt people for “losing much less than government documents? What did I have for lunch? I feel like losing it.
