In an effort to cover-up continued allegations of cover-up and conspiracy in relation the IRS scandal, the White House tries to label the entire investigation based on nothing more than a “conspiracy theory.” They also dismiss any wrong doing with the loss of years worth of Lois Lerner’s emails.
Josh Earnest, Deputy White House Press Secretary, commented on the recent developments:
“Turns out that there have been 13 months of multiple congressional investigations, including 14 congressional hearings, 30 interviews with IRS employees, 50 written congressional requests, and 750,000 pages of documents, and all of that has done nothing to substantiate false Republican claims of a broader political conspiracy,” Earnest said.
“So I don’t know if you’re floating another conspiracy or if this is a request from Republicans who are floating a conspiracy or what exactly the suggestion is,” he continued. “But the fact of the matter is we’ve cooperated extensively, and despite that cooperation, you know, we’ve seen continued allegations of Republican conspiracy theories that just never pan out.”
