9:00 pm
website different from billo' word of the day, no torpor when writing to the factor. miss megynpromptly, dead shortstop 11:00 a.m. eastern. "the five" is next. >> hello. i'm eric bolling, with bob beckel. it's 5:00 in new york city and this is "the five." >> why did lois lerner's computer crash ten days after she was asked for her emails surrounding the irs targeting conservatives? why did the contracted archive company stop archiving lerner's emails the exact dates in question? why does lois lerner continue to plead the fifth? irs commissioner john koskinen has answers but doesn't think he owes any to the american people. >> i subpoenaed you here tonight because i'm sick and tired of
9:01 pm
your game playing in response to congressional oversight. you testified under oath in march that you would produce all of lois lerner's emails to this committee. at a minimum you didn't tell the whole truth that you knew on that day. we have a problem with you, and you havetaining your credibilit. >> trey gowdy did a tremendous effort. >> you said multiple times there was no evidence you found of i had criminal wrongdoing. i want to you tell me what criminal statutes you've evaluated. >> i've not looked at any. >> how can you tell our fellow citizens there's no criminal wrongdoing if you don't even know what statutes to look at. >> i've seen no evidence -- >> how would you know what elements of the crime existed. you don't know what statutes are in play. >> amazingly democrats didn't care that the irs the most
9:02 pm
feared agency to regular folks may be hiding a corruption that leads to the white house. the democrats instead used their allotted time to apologize. >> therefore, i begin by a series of questions simply by offering you and apology. >> i haven't seen a display of disrespect since i've been in congress and unfortunate that anyone has to be subjected to it. >> i appreciate you coming here, giving it the best you got. and then having to come in here and go through this hell. >> badgering this commissioner as virtually every member on the republican side has done is shameful. it's got to stop. as far as i'm telling you, one member here is going walk out and not return. >> why are democrats okay with covering up a conspiracy that may lead all the way to the big house, the white house? >> you ought to be careful making that comment about may lead to the white house.
9:03 pm
there's not a is in untila of evidence that's a case. i would be careful about saying that. is there a cover up somewhere in the irs? obviously in my mind there is. i think the most damning part of this is her taking the fifth. from that point forward there's a trigger of events whether she was responsible for it alone or whatever. but to suggest that somehow it's a white house cover up is -- >> he said i don't know 20 times. trey gowdy points out he didn't look up the statutes. >> i will say this. i agree -- i've never heard a committee of congress be that rough on somebody. >> would you be wasting your time apologizing to this guy. >> you got to ask why are they kissing up to this guy? because he's a donor. it's like a hooker going after your pimp. i haven't seen this kind of cover-up since robin williams played "mrs. doubtfire."
9:04 pm
what does it take for the mainstream media to care that irs have to execute tea partiers or have to say i hope these bullets recyclable. the irs scandal, with the va stuff, the p.o.w., it shows every part of the obama apple is bad. used to be able to eat around the worm. now it's all worm and no apple. >> you pointed out -- maybe i heard the guy -- >> the arrogance. the smile he had going on there. >> so koskinen sits there like butter would not melt. okay. that i think also is the other thing that has really irritated people. not just the guys on the committee but people watching at home thinking how can he sit there. the thing is, greg points out something. he's a big time political donor. he was doing his public service. by public he doesn't mean working for all of us he means working for the democrats.
9:05 pm
that's what i think is amazing -- think of the position that president obama's administration has put the democrats in. in an election year where they have a tough situation with their own turn out anyway. the democrats are now in a position of bending over backwards to defend the irs. that is quite astounding but got to hand it to their loyalty they are walking in lock step to protect the irs from what i think everybody including teen media talking this morning, all the talking heads, we know, obviously, there is a stinking fish. where does that lead. if i was the democrats i would blame the obama white house for putting themselves in this position. >> go back to your -- >> there's many. >> i bet there are not. >> i bet there are. i'll be one. i never donated anything. >> but you're not confirmed. >> i did get confirmed by the obama administration. >> let's not derail this.
9:06 pm
let's stay on this particular scandal. >> you raised the thing about the money. >> if you control the facts and information, kind of control the debate and the people. >> that's right. when you talk about the nsa spying on average americans and the administration say we're doing it for national security purposes that's why -- that's the second biggest scandal because in a normal administration the irs would just be functioning the way it's supposed to function. we're supposed to believe that the obama administration that is using the irs to target conservative groups that is also collecting data on every single american is not going to use that type of information for political reasons? you would be completely foolish and naive. if this were a republican president we would be on the road time peachmen. think about rosemary woods, president nixon's secretary. everybody knew who rosemary woods was the woman who supposedly accidentally, trying
9:07 pm
to demonstrate to the media how she was just happen stance deleting that tape. she was the fall girl for a president of the united states. and the media was obsessed with it. everybody in the united states of america knew who this woman was. you have the death of legitimate journalism by the press saying we're not going to report on this. they are just as bad. the irs targets people financially. the media targets people with their pens or computers. they do the same thing. that's why they think this is okay. >> let me ask you a question with all due respect you got to be unbelievable naive to believe irs and other administration didn't target people. maybe not at this level. >> they admitted as much that they targeted -- they are not allowed to do that. >> i under they are not allowed to do it. but to suggest that the irs is purely an institution that doesn't target. why do i get audited.
9:08 pm
>> they targeted conservatives. >> just because other people are doing it doesn't make it right. >> that's fine. i understand that. >> this is wrong. it's wrong. >> destruction of evidence, obstruction of justice which then takes it to the next level and so the political appointee that acts like he doesn't have to answer any questions, you have democrats that are -- i think this is a path that will backfire on the democrats. >> can we move on to this one. see the "new york times." you don't see any mention of this. no mention of the irs scandal. you have to go 19 pages in to find the story. even liberal talking head mark halperin want answers. >> i think with a different administration, one that was a republican administration, this story would be a national obsession and instead it's getting coverage here and a few other places. >> a year ago exactly tomorrow
9:09 pm
i called for a special prosecutor in this case while giving the president the benefit of the doubt. i now realize how naive i was to give the administration the benefit of the doubt. >> you want to take this one? >> special prosecutor is absolutely right. you heard trey gowdy talk about how the commissioner doesn't realize the crimes that have been committed. he doesn't even know the statute. he's supposed to report if there's a loss of data to the u.s. archives. last night u.s. archivist stood under oath and said they committed a crime. they absolutely committed a crime. so they do need a special prosecutor to investigate. the "new york times" also yesterday the lead story, the big story on a monday driving the news cycle, the headline was, robbing lettuce, basically. it was about how there's compost issues and kids aren't eating their lettuce. it is the death of legitimate
9:10 pm
journalism. it is telling people in power that, you know what? you can get away with this kind of stuff and the media is letting them do it. >> there were a group of people at the irs maybe the white house who sat down together and said okay let's destroy her emails, let's make sure the company that provides the e-mail coverage is brought into the conspiracy as well and let's make sure everybody up and down the line at the irs is in the conspiracy. you really believe that? >> yes, i do. there are red flags every where. would you set up the question after she was asked about temp mams they suddenly went away. what a coincidence. we have to give up on the media about when it comes to scandal. they abdicated their spine. the ultimate consequence is you're watching the administration fall apart like a chair under christie ali's butt. their arrow gabs is so wild.
9:11 pm
now you're seeing guys for fox news making scandal and now laughing at us wow there's something stinky here. >> dana, the irs scandal turns out broadcast news three minutes and 14 seconds of it in their first week. on bridgegate, chris christie did 123 minutes. today the day that there's growing last night on the hill 19 pages before you see it in the "new york times." >> it wasn't that the testimony wasn't dramatic but that the hearing wasn't dramatic it happens in the evening. you think it could actually find its way into the front page. i also think that people are getting their news in lots of different ways. that's the reason that the democrats will find this backfires on them because people are not -- the trust of congress is lower than just the next one up. the next lowest is the media.
9:12 pm
so i think that -- >> i want to ask you this. this is your "wall street journal" the most conservative newspaper i would guess. >> i wouldn't call it that. >> says u.s. seeks data and inquiry. i can't find a front page story. >> it's hair brain to think there's a conspiracy but do you know what the odds are on june 3rd, 2011, lois lerner got the letter saying show us the emails ten later her computer crashes. the back up archive said we lost that period of time. what's far more unlikely is what they expect us to believe. >> the conspiracy -- my own guess lois lerner and one other person maybe two decided to destroy her emails. >> they were lining from the beginning. remember they said that the whole situation was started by two rogue agents. that's not true. that lie had to start that
9:13 pm
somewhere. >> jay carney started that. >> he had to get it from somewhere. >> how many times have they visited the white house? that's why if republicans were smart they would, especially in the house of representatives, they would pass bills to strip the irs of its enforcement authority on obamacare and have democrats put a vote up as you pointed out earlier to defend the irs in an election year. have them defend a vote saying no, know the irs should be able. >> make them swallow the obamacare mandate. >> outside of the right-wing who do you think really cares about this? >> that's a good question. america should because the irs is being used as a coercive force. and the media doesn't care. so it's up to the citizens to act on this. >> and the democrats on the hill apologized or made a joke of the hearing. that there is the problem. >> why is that a problem? >> because the american people -- >> that's their job.
9:14 pm
>> that's not their job. >> his polls started to dip when this scandal originally broke last spring. if you look at the start of thinks nose dive, president obama it's the start of this scandal. every person fears the irs in this country. >> i agree there's a scandal here. i don't agree it's as widespread as you're suggesting. >> we won't know. >> coming up, stunning new claims of the abuse and the va scandal. the department's mismanagement and death cover-ups. (vo) rush hour around here starts at 6:30 a.m. - on the nose. but for me, it starts with the opening bell. and the rush i get, lasts way more than an hour.

9:19 pm
many people may not know this but the motto of the department of veterans affairs is a quote from president abraham lincoln, to care for him who shall borne the battle and for his widow and/or fans. how has the obama administration fulfilled this promise. according to a new whistle blower in a shameful fashion. >> somebody is going on that electronic wait list and where people are identified as being dead, somebody is that and saying no they are not dead. >> correct. >> to hide the fact people died on that list? >> that's my belief. >> what would be the other, any other purpose? >> there wouldn't be any other purpose. >> the whistle blower also described the horrifying experience of finding out that the va was too late to offer help to one veterans' family. >> then came the call she had to make in early december.
9:20 pm
she finally had found an appointment available for a navy veteran who had come to the va months earlier urinating blood. >> so i called the family and that's when i found out that he was dead. >> they called you and said -- >> i said what is this regarding. she said we have a primary for them. i said really you're a little too late. >> andrea, one of the things that happens with these scandals is whistle blowers who might have been too afraid to speak out feel more emboldened and want to tell what they learned. we've always maintained there might be more. do you think there is still yet more to come after this? >> yeah, do i. this is the scandal that will continue on and on and on because it seems a lot worse than we originally thought. we thought it was isolated to phoenix, the arizona va so now it's much greater. now you'll see people wait a minute this happened to a family member of mine. dana, i know i made the comparison before but they operate the va like a single
9:21 pm
payer system very similar to the british system. if you look at this week's headlines in england they are the same as you have been hearing from the whistle blowers and these families coming out. just two days ago a man died in england, he was and he leepilep. he was waiting for a shower installed. a man with a hernia the size of a football was wiped from a surgery. three more headlines. it's why that single payer argument that, bob, i you know love it, but can we just give it a rest? can we finally have the progressives admit that's not the ideal situation that government doesn't do health care very well and health care has gotten worse under president obama from obamacare to this? >> one of the solutions on the table is offering veterans vouchers that they can go to private hospitals. >> very start. >> there's a report out from
9:22 pm
senator coburn claiming more than 1,000 veterans died from 2001 to 2011 as a result of misconduct teva. >> anything from harassing patients to overutilization of police to stealing veterans things to rape to accosting patients to ignoring patients. all criminal activity. poor management is the problem. it's not money. it's not access to available facilities. it's lack of management. >> tom coburn leading the charge. to find out more what is going on teva, started well before the scandal erupted, absolute financial malfeasance. what's the recourse? >> one of the recourses is replacing someone who can do the job. 80% of the phoenix va management were given performance bonuses.
9:23 pm
100% of senior management in the va system, systemwide received a positive job review. $10 million to phoenix in bonuses, $400 million systemwide for performance bonuses. you have to stop that. this whistle blower said she was told to take a picture of people who were on a waiting list and put it in the desk because it wasn't going to get on the waiting list. she said she had literally thousands of pieces of paper. it's a failure of management. there's plenty of money there. they just need the right people in place. do a sweeping change. get rid of a bunch of people. >> greg, to that point, get rid of a bunch of people that would include the bureaucrats. how does it happen that a culture develops in an organization where they think it's okay to cheat and lie and on the backs of our veterans. >> if you ever read a russian novel you can't spell bureaucrat without a rat.
9:24 pm
all these sins are out of greedy desires. the deaths are hidden because people want their jobs and their bonuses. it is like a -- it's a horrible russian novel, misery garden that's alive to feed bloated bureaucrats. remember the va was just another thing that obama was going to fix. but he's like the opposite of a handyman. everything he touches turns to liberalism. >> before i get to bob, i want to add one more thing. one of the reasons why the culture is as you point out. unions. 85% of the vas are unionized. >> you don't see the president being as vocal about this because it would undermine his signature achievement which is government-run health care. >> the other thing they say there's an investigation. when there's an investigation they can say we can't comment on it any more. you thought it was the worst scandal of the obama administration. >> things are worse. >> can you see any activity they are doing to try to get in front of it? >> not as much as they should
9:25 pm
be. let me make a couple of points here. there are millions and millions and millions of visits by servicemen to the va every year. it's not hard to pick out these horror stories one. two, they said 1,000 people died in ten years. seven years under the bush administration, three under the obama administration. i don't believe for a second the obama administration or bush administration wanted to see people died. that means somewhere down the line, i think you shouldn't be giving performance bonuses for anything. this is not a obama issue per se. it wasn't a bush administration per se. it goes back to the time it was started. >> it's a government. it's a bureaucratic issue. a government expanse. >> you know how hard it is to fire a union worker. >> they are down to 8% of the workforce. >> i'm telling you somewhere
9:26 pm
around 80% of the va is unionized. that's the culture. >> the reason this is happening and people are dying is not because of unions. >> there's no incentive. there's no competition. >> no incentive to do better. if you're failing at your job, you get rid of them. >> there was an incentive to do better if you covered up the number of people that were deceased or that there was a waiting list or the corruption. then you got the money. >> you got the performance review that got you the bonus. when we come back the minnesota legislature recently pass ad law outlawing the name asian carp because some said it's offensive. we'll break down the carp controversy.

as an official language to describe harmful, invasive carp. >> they're called asian carp because they're from asia.
9:32 pm
as reported the bill signed in may. now, the fish is officially known as invasive carp, making them from invasha. so why stop with asian carp? what about mexican jumping beans? that is the point. we're all from somewhere. can we lose all ethnic prefixes? i doubt that. if the fish are truly bad why not call them american? we're the bad guys responsible for all wars, global warming and katy perry. fish are feckless things, destroying everything in their path. just call them democrats i did that for you, bob. cheap shot. >> it's, i happen to fish. these things are dangerous they came here on fishing
9:33 pm
trawlers. these things are really dangerous they're from asia. you're right. you want to rename the black plague the purple plague? i mean, i don't -- i don't -- that is just, if you're a politician you're going to stay here and defend the asian carp? i don't get it. >> is it cool to be named after something dangerous? >> black cod? hello. black rice? what about white rice? and john hoffman? so stop calling him john? >> good point. >> yes. >> andrea, we're doomed as a country. . >> i think so. >> changing language. >> i saw it was minnesota and what other pressing issues are happening that this man isn't concerned with. floods
9:34 pm
they're experiencing massive floods. i guess president obama is going there to blame the floods on global warming but i thought about this. what would be an accurate comparison? what about greek cheese? then, they name it to something more invasive like stinky cheese? why don't we name it after the irish? like the fighting irish? irish coffee, ire yush car pomz they love nicknames. >> we have to be careful. this is a serious matter the fact this guy is making it almost unserious, these things are destroying the fish systems in the great lakes >> and guys need to come up with new poison for asian carp? >> i have an idea? >> what? >> call it red-skinned carp.
9:35 pm
>> there you go. good idea. >> we're seeing a war on language. is a symbolic gesture that isn't constructive. it doesn't help anyone. >> but it's relative. think of the chilean sea bass they love it. now, it's not from chle. now, we need to find out if it's delicious, then, we can feed the world. >> i eat chinese food all the time. >> just another way for the chinese to invade this country. it's a dangerous single country we have to face in this world now, they sent our fish over here to screw up our fish system. >> it's kind of a conspiracy. iet is. >> next thing, they're going to lose their e mails. >> all right. fish don't have e mails they don't have little fingers.

even their women are ugly. they are. >> that's so untrue. >> it is true. but anyway here's the point. >> how about bridgett bardot. >> have you seen her now. we're the only developed country that doesn't pay women when they are pregnant and have babies. that's a shameful -- it's like a twhoirld country we're living in. >> no, it's not a third world. it's a first world country. why are we adopting the customs of the runner ups and losers. obama is mad at the cold war his side lost. >> the germans are not losers. would you. >> they are the runner up. the germans lost the last world war. >> and the first one and gave us hitler. but that's not the point. there are a lot of developed countries that do this and it makes sense. why not pay people? >> some companies are deciding to do that. the market is figuring it out. there are companies in america that are starting to say that will be one of the perks of the

job, it becomes a competitive issue. >> i suppose you have faith they all will do it? >> here's what happens. president obama yesterday decided to say we should be more like france in this respect. fran yesterday just told us it's likely will be in a full blown recession as of next week. unemployment rate is 10.4%. gdp per capita in france $35,000 in united states $53,000. they were a socialist party running the place who declared into law 75% tax rate. president obama has no idea what a free market capitalist system is. he knows how to redistribute wealth not create it. obama economics is an oxymoron. >> don't you think this makes sense? >> no. >> in greece they do it. >> look where greece is right now. that's not the right example. i lived in paris. most people think, the frerj know what they are doing because they spend time by the eiffel

one more thing starting over. >> okay. so this just proves how stupid liberals in academia are. the koch brothers that liberals should love are trying to donate $10 million to brooklyn college which is part of the college of new york and they said no. they would rather turn down $10 million in donation than have money from the koch brothers.
9:57 pm
this is a state funded school. new york state not doing very well. instead of taking the donation to do good work they would rather have them keep their money. how stupid. >> all those kids that could get scholarships. >> your buddy would disagree. >> elvis presley who is my hero he had that, remember that big jump suit he had near the end when he weighed 350 pounds. see that one right there. that has sweat stains on it. all kind of stains interest. up for auction and going to go for at least $200,000. i wish i had the money to buy it. eric you do so buy it for me. >> 200 grand. >> sure. >> okay. can we move on? chris christie and i both played high school baseball. i went on to play pro baseball chris christie went into politics. probably two of good choice.
