Issa: Committee Not Slacking on IRS, Benghazi Probes

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., took exception to a radio talk show host saying his committee isn't working as hard as it could be.

Mark Levin appeared on Fox News Channel's "Your World with Neil Cavuto" Tuesday and indicated that House Speaker John Boehner might be stonewalling the probes into the IRS and Benghazi scandals.

Issa appeared on the same show Wednesday, saying Boehner and other members of the House leadership are telling him to use all the resources he needs.

Levin, Issa said, has not sat through the 43 hours of depositions of witnesses directly related to Benghazi that his panel has handled.

"We're taking real time," Issa said. "We're the ones that made sure that the lie about Benghazi got turned into the truth that there never was some sort of a video. We're the ones that proved that it wasn't Cincinnati; it went to Washington, and not just to Washington, but to the office of the General Counsel. We're the ones that continue to do that."

The Internal Revenue Service is the one stonewalling, Issa said.

"Yes, we get black pieces of paper. Yes, we have less than two-tenths of one percent of the documents identified in the IRS probe," he told Cavuto.

Perhaps, Issa said, Levin "misses the fact that good investigations take time."

The committee must follow the facts where they lead, Issa said, and not jump to conclusions, specifically about political intent.

"But we do follow the facts till we get the truth to the American people," Issa said.
