Paul Ryan Tears Into IRS Boss’ Explanation For Lost Lerner Emails: “I Don’t Believe You!”

“I just, I don’t believe it. That’s your problem. Nobody believes you.”

Rep. Paul Ryan tore into IRS commissioner John Koskinen Friday at a House committee hearing on what happened to the emails of Lois Lerner and other IRS employees.

“I am sitting here listening to this testimony. I just, I don’t believe it. That’s your problem. Nobody believes you,” Ryan said. “This is not being forthcoming. This is being misleading again. This is a pattern of abuse, a pattern of behavior that is not giving us any confidence that this agency is being impartial. I don’t believe you. This is incredible.”

“I’ve had a long career. This is the first time anybody has ever said they don’t believe me,” Koskinen countered.

“I don’t believe you,” Ryan shot back.
