I’m shocked Yellen says she didn’t know about Taibbi’s visit

During the Wednesday broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “The Story,” Rep. for House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) said it was strange that Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, claimed she was unaware of the IRS visit to reporter Matt Taibbi. house given the magnitude of the story.

Jordan said: “We gave them a time in the future to come back with us. We hope they will. I’m surprised Janet Yellen doesn’t know about it. It’s actually a pretty big development in America, the United States of America, where you’re not supposed to have the government turned against the very people it’s supposed to serve, which seems to have been what’s passed here. ”

He continued, “I think context is important. Remember, the day before Mr. Taibbi testified, we all learned that the FTC had sent a letter to Twitter asking Twitter who the journalists you are talking to named Mr. Taibbi personally. The next day he testifies and the Democratic members of the committee ask him, what are your sources, give us your sources, a direct attack on the first amendment. And while they’re asking those questions, the taxman is at his door.

Jordan added: “It looked like someone may have tried to fake his identity. We know he doesn’t owe any money. He paid everything he owes. In fact, the IRS owes him. The government owes him money.
