Speier: 'There Is No Connection to the White House' (CNS News)
"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."
