Sen. McConnell Says the White House Has a Culture of Intimidation

Claims that the IRS scandal is only the most recent example


WASHINGTON, May 19 (UPI) — U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., Sunday accused the Obama administration of operating "a culture of intimidation."

In an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press," McConnell echoed language used by other Republicans on Sunday talk shows this week to describe the White House's handling of the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of conservative political groups applying for tax-exempt status, the terrorist attack on a U.S. mission in Libya, and the Justice Department's seizure of Associated Press reporters' telephone records.
