In life, there are things you just know, chief among which is the fact that you never, ever mess with Trey Gowdy, especially when you’re clueless on a particular issue because he will knock you squarely into the middle of next week.
A while back, the IRS, on order from the Obama Administration, was unfairly targeting and auditing conservative groups that didn’t mesh with Obama’s liberal narrative. When pressed on the issue, the IRS commissioner, in a Congressional hearing, said that he denied any wrongdoing, because of course, he did. I’m willing to bet that he expected to walk out of that hearing with his head held high and everyone else with their tail between their legs.
And then he spoke to Trey Gowdy and got burned so badly that he’s gonna need medicated ointment for the next month. Gowdy gets the IRS commissioner to admit, in front of the American people, that he had no idea what “wrongdoing” even meant since he had no working knowledge of the law. He also admitted that the claims made by the Obama Administration were untrue, and likely made up to save face politically.
This is absolutely satisfying and I can’t stop cheering him on. Around the 2:00 mark, Gowdy gets into it and makes the IRS commissioner stutter like a five-year-old with his hand in the cookie jar.
