Democrat Baucus on Obama’s IRS Scandal: ‘I have a hunch that a lot more is going to come out’

Sounds like he knows something.

Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.), the Senate Finance Committee Chairman, predicted in an interview airing Sunday that the scandal surrounding the Internal Revenue Service selectively targeting conservative political groups will grow.

“I have a hunch that a lot more is going to come out, frankly,” Baucus told Bloomberg News. “It’s broader than the current focus.”

Steven Miller, the acting commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service who was ousted earlier this week, is testifying Friday before the House Ways and Means committee in what is expected to be the first of many congressional grillings over the scandal. Baucus’s Senate committee will be one of the panels investigating the wrongdoing.

Considering Baucus himself urged the IRS to target conservatives, ad did many other Senate Democrats,  we suspect he’s got some inside info.

    So the guy that helped incite this behavior is the same guy that is retiring rather than clean up the obamacare mess that he helped make, and now is pretending to cast a critical eye on a debacle that everyone is realizing is disgusting and marked by lies all around.

    Howdy Blue Hen
    Your summary is quite accurate. That’s why I’ve tried to send you someone better in every election since I moved here. I’m also aghast at Jon Tester.
    The most plausible Democrat to replace Baucus is our recent governor, Brian Schweitzer. He’s bred from the same stock as Baucus and Tester; he looks more moderate because he’s had GOP majorities for the last couple of legislative sessions.
