The IRS Scandal, Day 614

IRS Logo 2Politico, GOP Set to Strengthen Committee Chairmen’s Subpoena Power; One Democrat Says the Move Amounts to ‘Exporting the Issa Model.’:

House Republicans are about to give more of their committee leaders the same unilateral subpoena power that former Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa wielded against the Obama administration in his probes into the Internal Revenue Service and “Fast and Furious.” ...

Democrats denounce the moves as a power grab, repeating their complaints that Issa (R-Calif.) “abused” his subpoena authority by bombarding the administration with hundreds of demands when he led the Oversight and Government Reform Committee. But Republicans say it’s necessary after Obama’s agencies stonewalled GOP-led probes into the IRS, the health care law, the Fast and Furious gun-walking program and the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya.
