A viral video published Monday by the House Oversight committee documents the runaround IRS officials gave Congress following news the IRS targeted Americans for their political beliefs.

The Lying McConnell is Trying to Revive a Govt Agency

This is the closest thing to a unicorn we’ve ever seen. A government agency has shut its doors, and we have a small window of time to ensure that it stays that way! We're talking about the Export-Import (Ex-Im) Bank.
