#IRS SCANDAL UPDATES: After Months of Obstruction, Congress to Hear From Key IRS Official

Sarah Hall Ingram, the former commissioner of the IRS department tied to the inappropriate targeting of conservative nonprofits, and who is now running the IRS office responsible for implementing Obamacare, will finally testify before Congress this week, following repeated efforts to prevent Republicans from questioning her.

“Although the Committee has requested several times that Ms. Ingram speak on the record about the operation implementation of ObamaCare, until this hearing, the IRS had refused to allow her to do so,” committee chairman Darrell Issa (R., Calif.) wrote in a letter to ranking member Elijah Cummings (D., Md.) on Monday. The letter was in response to last week’s request from Cummings for four additional witnesses at Wednesday’s hearing (Ingram is currently scheduled as the only witness). A GOP aide says Democrats were probably trying to “take the heat” off of Ingram and dilute the focus of the hearing.
