“Today is not about Lois Lerner or the alleged inappropriate tactics she may have employed,” Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday. “Today is about protecting the integrity and the credibility of this committee.”
Speier accused committee Republicans of fabricating a “vast conspiracy” around a “mid-level bureaucrat who may have made some poor decisions.”
“There is no connection to the White House,” Speier said. “What we are trying to do is hold in contempt a mid-level bureaucrat, and the actions of this committee won’t hold up to judicial scrutiny.”
