Paul Ryan Goes Ballistic On IRS Commissioner Over Lost Emails

Republican Rep. Paul Ryan tore into IRS commissioner John Koskinen in a tense exchange at Friday morning’s House Ways and Means Committee hearing on the IRS’s lost emails.

“I am sitting here listening to this testimony. I just – I don’t believe it,” Ryan said, turning to Koskinen. “That’s your problem. Nobody believes you.”

Ryan accused the IRS of misleading Congress by previously claiming that no targeting occurred and then that progressive groups were also targeted by the IRS. “All of those things have been proven untrue,” Ryan said.

“You bury in a 27-page letter to the Senate asking for them to conclude the investigation that you’ve lost Lois Lerner’s emails…Monday, our investigators ask your agency if any other hard drives crashed” and Koskinen finally admitted that six other IRS officials under investigation also had their hard drives crash.

I know, I stay out of it until election season.  I guess being a Democrat is kind of like being a Brewers fan, you oppose cheating until your own team is doing it, then you talk yourself into believing there's really no cheating going on.  By the way, crashed hard drives are mostly recoverable.  Hopefully with Ryan's run for president in 2016 gets us some more Hey Girl, It's Paul Ryan memes.
