Fantastic: Jason Mattera catches up with both Al Franken and Chuck Schumer to question them about sending letters to the IRS asking for probes into conservative groups. After almost tripping over his own feet, Franked engaged Mattera about it in the form of a denial, and Schumer just completely ignored him. It’s almost like the questions hit home a little too close.

    Asking the questions no one in the State Run Media dares to ask…Be careful, Jason, Eric Holder is not going to like this.

    • Las1

      d1carter   Hell, the IRS won’t like this either.

  • The Sentinel

    Al Franken is a bad comedian. Schumer is a turd.
    How funny that scumbags like this get elected.

      The Sentinel It’s a sick joke upon the Republic.

    • GWShrub

      They get elected by their brainless supporters.  I just saw an interview from the streets of New York & some of them had never heard of Benghazi.  One of ‘em, said he was a student at USC & he couldn’t even name the Vice President.  Amazing!!

  • Army_Pilot1967

    Why are LIARS so shy and elusive when being questioned about actions they took???????  Also it’s nice that Freaken’ Franken has a pudgy dude running interference for him!!!  What a dipstick both of those liberal liars are!!!!!

    • WordsFailMe

      Army_Pilot1967 Maybe because the 5th Amendment may not be invoked while you are walking? Apparently you can only invoke the 5th while seated.

    Franken is a punk.

    • GWShrub

      You’re too kind.  He’s a fraud, a liar & an ass.

    Schumer only talks to hollywood actors, his base.

  • stage9

    Why didn’t he just print OUT the letters and then HAND THEM TO them AND ASK: “Senator, is THIS your signature?”
    Wouldn’t this have been a more effective “gotcha” than asking a liar to voluntarily admit to the truth?
    Treat it like a court of law. Bring the evidence and place it in front of them. When they deny it or try and lie about it, then you have them on camera lying.

    • lawngreen

      stage9 Yes! I agree! Nail them to the wall. Paint them into a corner.

    The fat kid from the ‘Sandlot’ says “we are running very late for a meeting here” as they are sitting on a stopped train. “We’d love to set something up for you” as we sit on a stopped train. A comical dodge from Stuart Smalley, the first time I’ve found him funny.

  • lawngreen

    What I saw of the letter said “social welfare groups”. Not the same as “conservative groups”. There are no Leftie “socail welfare groups”? That sounds like a title the Left would love to have.
    Sure, we know what was meant, but Mattera’s choice of words left them a way to deny. There’d have to be a connection established before Mattera’s choice of words would be useful. Disappointing.

     FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: March 12, 2012 WASHINGTON, D.C.
    A group of seven Senate Democrats urged the Internal Revenue Service on Monday to impose a strict cap on the amount of political spending by tax-exempt, nonprofit groups.

    balls unraveling, strings coming off, all hands on deck, they are running scared .. silent majority watchinggggggggggg..

  • RobHorine

    This has been the only time Franken has made me laugh.

  • Pyrran

    Al Franken is a human toad.  I envision him trying to hop across ten lanes of a busy freeway.

    • PVG

      Pyrran During rush-hour……..

  • GEDouglas

    That intentional physical contact by franken and his uh… roadie could be considered assault.

  • Charm4sure

    Normally, Schumer is shoving his way towards the mic & the cameras. Now he has nothing to say & scurries away. The guy with Franken says, they “really don’t talk to national press”. Really? Guess they worry Franken will be caught in a lie. And, of course, Mattera did catch him in a lie. Would love to see both of them brought before the House as witnesses in this IRS mess. How is it that government employees get to plead the 5th when their employee performance  is being assessed? Government answers to the people or we are not free.

  • LouisLaGuardiaIII

    At least give Franken a little credit for taking a minute to talk ,unlike Schumer who was acting completely rude by not even acknowledging the question and talking to that lady as if Mattera wasn’t even standing there. Still both owe an explaination.

    • SSGRick

      LouisLaGuardiaIIIGive Franken credit for what??? Are you kidding me? A simple minded failure of a liberal talk show, a washed up and out so-called “comedian” a complete and total political HACK who cheated with the help of unions to get elected in the first place and you think he deserves some sort of break?
      I’ll bet if you asked that a**hole to recite one of the first ten amendments he couldn’t get them right. I’ll bet he would even screw up the the government, if you asked him to diagram the federal government on paper he’d get it wrong. Franken is an idiot that should never have been elected and by him being in the Senate it tells you just how STUPID the people of Minnesota really are. But we already knew that being that they were the only state in the enitire country that voted for Walter Mondale in 1984.
      As for schummer well lets just say he may as well be a kennedy based on the way he acts, talks, thinks, and his superior hypocritical attitude. You know lil’ ol’ chuckie doesn’t want you or anyone else in America to own a gun but he sure does like his and his time at the shooting ranges. Just like every democrat he’s a HACK, A LIAR,  A THIEF, A COMMUNIST, MARXIST, SOCIALIST, well wait I’ll break it down for you in one last short paragraph that will explain every democrat in this country they are as follows:
      The only important difference between Nazi-ism, Fascism,
      Communism, Marxism, Socialism and Liberalism is the spelling, and
      the last group hasn’t developed brains large enough to figure that out.
