State of the Union Crib Sheet for Sunday June 2

In an exclusive interview on “State of the Union,” House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) told us that his committee’s interviews with IRS staffers in Cincinnati suggest that the Obama administration ordered the targeting of conservative groups. Issa’s committee provided us with partial transcripts of the interviews. Issa blasted White House Press Secretary, Jay Carney, as a “paid liar” over his handling of the controversy. Issa’s committee will hold a hearing on Thursday looking at excessive spending at the tax collecting agency.
Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) and Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) weighed in on a new study that says 25% of all families are led by a single mom, and 44% of those have never been married. Ros-Lehtinen warned, “these kinds of statistics should be a wakeup call for our GOP, because we need to be talking about the issues that are more representative of America.”

Issa: Carney is a "paid liar"

State of the Union Exclusive

Rep. Darrell Issa talking about the IRS scandal said WH Press Secretary Jay Carney is "their paid liar, their spokesperson... he's still making up things about what happens in calling this local rogue. There's no indication - the reason the Lois Lerner tried to take the fifth is not because there is a rogue in Cincinnati, it's because this is a problem that was coordinated in all likelihood right out of Washington headquarters and we're getting to proving it."
