Rep. Campbell: "Secretary Lew, Shouldn't You be Trying to Find the Evidence?!"
May 22, 2013
May 22, 2013: Receiving testimony from Treasury Secretary Jack Lew at a Financial Services Committee hearing, Rep. John Campbell (CA-45) questions Secretary Lew about the Treasury Inspector General's report on improper targeting by the IRS. Campbell asks the Secretary if he agrees that it is important to know why that targeting occurred and why he has not taken charge, as Secretary of the Treasury, of finding the evidence that reveals the extent of the misconduct at the IRS. While the Treasury Secretary refuses to directly answer the questions, Campbell concludes by making clear the critical duty the Treasury Secretary has to determine if political intervention of any kind prompted the gross misconduct by IRS officials.
