>> this point which is about the irs and this revelation. they have apologized for this. what more would you like to see? are you satisfied with the apology?

>> the targeting conservative groups in an election year for tax exempt status . you said it all.

>> they targeted conservatives. for tax exempt status , but the bottom line is they used key words to go after conservatives. this is something you have to institute changes to make sure it doesn't happen again. there las to be accountable the for the people who did it. and quite frankly, up until a few days ago, there's got to be accountability for people who were telling lies about it being done and lastly, to be honest, one of the most pest offensive parts is, my committee and jim jordan and i instigated this investigation, got the ig to do the investigation before the ig's report comes to the public or to congress as required by law. it's leaked by the irs to trial to spin the output. this mea culpa is not an honest one. the honest one is in fact, let's see the ig report. let's go through it. and then let's just like the ambassador said on the 29 changes which we agree with, let's seats what the instituted changes need to be to make this not happen again.
