HANNITY: Now, unfortunately, after today's hearing, we now have more questions than answers including the new revelation that Sarah Hall Ingram, the official who is in charge of the IRS Tax Exempt Organizations Office when the scandals was taking place, she is now the head of the IRS ObamaCare Implementation Office.
Joining me now, two of the lawmakers who participated in today's heated House hearing. Louisiana Congressman Charles Boustany and New York Congressman Joe Crowley. Guys, welcome to the program.
REP. JOE CROWLEY, D-N.Y., HOUSE WAYS AND MEANS COMMITTEE: Thank you, Sean. Good to be with.
REP. CHARLES BOUSTANY, R-LA., HOUSE WAYS AND MEANS COMMITTEE: Hi, Sean. Good to be with you.
HANNITY: Let me start with this woman, Ms. Ingram, she was in charge at the time. Do you think it is appropriate she is in charge of the implementation of ObamaCare?
CROWLEY: Sean, as a matter of fact, that is not true. She actually left that office six months prior to even subordinates knowing what took place there. So, she wasn't in the office when the subordinates were informed.
HANNITY: Wasn't she there between 2009 and 2012?
CROWLEY: Well, my understanding is she left six months prior to our subordinates knowing that this actually took place.
HANNITY: But we knew a couple of years ago and what we learned in the last couple of days is in fact they did know at the time that she was there.
CROWLEY: I think you have to check your facts. I think she left the office six months prior to her subordinates knowing --
HANNITY: Charles Boustany, what is your understanding of this? I understood that she did know.
BOUSTANY: That is my understanding as well, Sean. I think she was there during the time that this abusive practice was being perpetrated. So, I have real concerns and what we have to pinpoint and get more information about what her role was in all of this, there's no question about it. Because this whole idea about the IRS getting expansive powers under ObamaCare is deeply troubling in light of what we know now.
