Bombshell at IRS hearings today? Watch LIVE

The House Oversight Committee is scheduled to hold a hearing today at 11:00am ET on “The IRS’ Systematic Delay and Scrutiny of Tea Party Applications.” - Mandy Nagy/Le-gal In-sur-rec-tion

FOX News’ Carl Cameron reported Wednesday evening on the O’Reilly Factor that major evidence is expected to be revealed at Thursday’s hearing that proves, according to House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, that the IRS targeting scandal goes “way higher up in the government” and that the IRS in DC “was ultimately calling the shots.”

Rep. Darrell Issa: IRS Tea Party trail leads to DC - Darrell Issa/USA Today

Our inquiry has a long way to go.

WASHINGTON INVOLVED IN IRS TARGETING: Check out Darrell’s oped in today’s USA Today explaining how IRS officials in Washington were directly involved in the scrutiny of Tea Party applications.

FROM DARRELL’S OPED: “Hull [a veteran D.C. IRS tax specialist] and his supervisors explained to committee investigators that scrutiny of Tea Party applicants — and the reasons for delays and enhanced scrutiny — went beyond the routine. It involved Lois Lerner, the senior IRS official who would later assert her right against self-incrimination in refusing to answer questions before Congress, as well as the office of the IRS chief counsel, which is headed by one of only two political appointees at the IRS.”
