IRS Transcript Release Would Be Too Reckless, Issa Writes

Releasing the transcripts of interviews with Internal Revenue Service workers who scrutinized Tea Party groups would be reckless, the chairman of the U.S. House Oversight Committee wrote today.

“Your push to release entire transcripts from witness interviews while the investigation remains active was reckless and threatened to undermine the integrity of the committee’s investigation,” chairman Darrell Issa, a Republican, wrote to Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the panel’s top Democrat.
