I wonder what White House spokesperson Jay Carney is thinking about as he is pelted with questions at the daily briefing. Let's start with the IRS. Steven Miller, the acting IRS commissioner broke his silence in an op:ed published in the USA Today, he says the agency was just trying to manage the explosive growth in applications for 501(c)(4) status that started pouring in the IRS in 2010.

Miller said, "Mistakes were made, but they were in no way due to any political or partisan motivation - We are and will continue to be - dedicated to reviewing all applications for tax-exempt status in an impartial manner." So is the agency official who acknowledged last week that conservative groups seeking nonprofit status were targeted for extra screening lying?

If only there was a way to find out who the leak was on this one? I know call the Department of Justice. Speaking of the DOJ - today Attorney General Eric Holder had a press conference saying that he recused himself in the Justice Department's decision to seize phone records from Associated Press Journalists. 

Needless to say there are lots of investigations going on in D.C. The funk in foggy bottom tonight on ATN.
