This is laughable: Rep. Elijah Cummings says a story in the Washington Post claiming no witnesses at the IRS hearings indicated there was evidence of “scandal” behind the agency’s targeting of conservative groups is proof that it’s a dead issue.

The report the WaPo cited was written by House Dems:

No witnesses gave even a hint of an indication of scandal?

null

That qualifies as at least an indication.

There’s also apparently nothing to see here:

New IRS emails released by the House Oversight Committee show staff working for Democratic Ranking Member Elijah Cummings communicated with the IRS multiple times between 2012 and 2013 about voter fraud prevention group True the Vote. True the Vote was targeted by the IRS after applying for tax exempt status more than two years ago. Further, information shows the IRS and Cummings’ staff asked for nearly identical information from True the Vote President Catherine Engelbrecht about her organization, indicating coordination and improper sharing of confidential taxpayer information.

Alternate version of the House Dems’ report on IRS targeting:
