Darrell Issa tears John Koskinen apart

Republicans Rip IRS Chief: During a Monday night hearing in Congress led by California U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa, Republicans again scorched IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, who has defended the IRS’ excuse for losing the Lois Lerner emails. Issa told Koskinen, “We have a problem with you and you have a problem with credibility.”

ISIL Slaughters Innocents: The radical Jihadist group ISIL continues its campaign of terror; villagers in Northern Iraq are reporting that the radicals murdered at least 40 civilians last week across four villages near the city of Kirkuk. Meanwhile, Secretary of State John Kerry visited Northern Iraq, saying that the U.S. is prepared to strike against ISIL.

No Political Interference in Sandusky Case: A report by Democratic Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane has absolved Republican Gov. Tom Corbett of accusations that he delayed the arrest of convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky for political reasons. And who brought those accusations against Corbett? Democratic Attorney General Kathleen Kane, while she was running for election.

Drone Intruder: A woman living in downtown Seattle told police over the weekend that two men flew a camera-equipped drone up to her window – and police say that that’s legal. There are no laws against photographing or videotaping while in a public place, Seattle police say.

Huge Alaska Earthquake: A magnitude 7.9 struck Alaska’s Aleutian Islands, far out in the Bering Sea, on Monday afternoon. The quake triggered a tsunami warning, but the closest villages only saw a few splashes.
